🌍️ Wikipedia:

Counter-Strike: Source is a tactical first-person shooter video game developed by Valve and Turtle Rock Studios. Released in October 2004 for Windows, it is a remake of Counter-Strike (2000) using the Source game engine. As in the original, Counter-Strike: Source pits a team of counter-terrorists against a team of terrorists in a series of rounds. Each round is won either by completing an objective (such as detonating a bomb or rescuing hostages) or by eliminating all members of the enemy team. The game was initially bundled with all retail and digital copies of Half-Life 2, before being released standalone.


Counter-Strike: Source retains its team-based objective-orientated first-person shooter style gameplay. The aim of playing a map is to accomplish a map's objective: defusing the bomb, rescuing all hostages, or killing the entire opposing team. The ultimate goal of the game is to win more rounds than the opposing team. Once players are killed, they do not respawn until the next round, though this depends on which server people play on. This gameplay feature distinguishes Counter-Strike from other first-person shooter games, where players respawn instantly or after a short delay.

Shooting while moving dramatically decreases accuracy, and holding the trigger down to continuously shoot produces severe recoil. The severity of damage induced by weaponry is dependent upon the specific locations of hits, with hits to the head being most lethal and shots which make contact elsewhere causing lesser loss of health. Damage is also affected by the distance, and if the target wears protection.


Counter-Strike: Source was initially released as a beta to members of the Valve Cyber Café Program on August 11, 2004. On August 18, 2004, the beta was released to owners of Counter-Strike: Condition Zero as well as those who had received a Half-Life 2 voucher bundled with some ATI Radeon video cards. The game was included with Half-Life 2 bundles, which were released on November 16, 2004.

On October 11, 2006, Valve released an experimental update entitled Dynamic Weapons Pricing. Under this system, item prices are determined based on their demand the previous week.

On March 5, 2010, Valve announced the release of games from its first-party library, including games from the Counter-Strike series, for Mac OS X. The ports were slated for release in April 2010. Valve employed Hidden Path Entertainment to provide support on updating Counter-Strike: Source. On May 7, 2010, Valve released an update that includes new features and functionality developed in collaboration with Hidden Path Entertainment. These include 144 (now 146) new achievements, a new domination and revenge system, similar to that of Team Fortress 2, player stats, an upgrade to the Source engine and more. On June 23, 2010, Valve released the beta to the public alongside the promised OS X version. On February 5, 2013, Valve released a port of Counter-Strike: Source for Linux.


Counter-Strike: Malvinas

Counter-Strike: Malvinas is a multiplayer first-person shooter modification of Counter-Strike: Source, developed and distributed by Argentine web hosting company Dattatec. The mod was released worldwide on 4 March 2013 and utilizes the Source game engine. The game is set in Stanley, the capital of the Falkland Islands, and revolves around a group of Argentine special forces capturing the archipelago from British "terrorists". The objective of the game is similar to that of the Counter-Strike series; each round is won by either detonating a bomb or by eliminating all members of the enemy team. Counter-Strike: Malvinas pays homage to the 1982 Falklands War, in which an estimated 650 Argentine and 255 British servicemen died. The mod prompted strong controversy in the United Kingdom; Dattatec's website was targeted by British hackers on 27 March 2013.


On August 12, 2011, Valve announced the production of a successor to Counter-Strike: Source, entitled Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Global Offensive's development began in March 2010 when Hidden Path Entertainment attempted to port Counter-Strike: Source onto video game consoles prior to the end of its lifespan. During its development, Valve saw the opportunity to turn the port into a full game and expand on the predecessor's gameplay.

Competitive play

Counter-Strike: Source has been played in tournaments since shortly after its release. The game received some criticism by the competitive community, who believed the game's skill ceiling was significantly lower than that of CS 1.6. This caused a divide in the competitive community as to which game to play competitively.

📕 Description [fr]

Un FPS tactique exclusivement multijoueur en ligne et en équipes opposant anti-terroristes et terroristes, par le studio Valve Corporation.
Il utilise le moteur Source.

Counter-Strike: Source (CS:S ou CSS) est un remake de Counter-Strike (2000, moteur GoldSrc, celui de Half-Life, dérivé de celui de Quake) basé sur le moteur Source, et un FPS tactique basé sur des objectifs, exclusivement multijoueur en ligne et en équipes opposant contre-terroristes et terroristes. Il n'y a pas de scénario mais des objectifs à compléter (pose ou désamorçage d'une bombe, sauvetage ou capture d'otages, élimination ou sauvetage d'un VIP) à moins d'éliminer l'équipe adverse. Les récompenses acquises en remportant les matchs permettent de compléter l'équipement du joueur.

Extrait du site (CS France) :

Counter-Strike Source est un jeu de tir stratégique multijoueur qui se joue exclusivement en ligne. Basé sur le moteur graphique du jeu Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike Source est la dernière version de Counter-Strike sortie actuellement. Source apporte essentiellement un nouveau graphisme plus réaliste par rapport aux versions précédentes. Plus réaliste, le joueur peut s'immiscer intégralement soit dans le rôle du policier ou soit dans celui du terroriste. Le but du jeu :

La mission des Contres-Terroriste est de :
• Désamorcer la bombe
• Sauver les otages
• Sauver le VIP
• Éliminer l'équipe adverse.

La mission des Terroristes est de :
• Planter la bombe
• Prendre en otage
• Éliminer le VIP
• Éliminer l'équipe adverse

Pour mener à bien sa mission, un arsenal d'armes est à votre disposition :
Pistolets, Fusils à Pompe, Fusils d'assaut, Snipers, Mitrailleuses, Grenades…

🌍️ Wikipedia:

Counter-Strike: Source, généralement abrégé par CS:S ou CSS, est un jeu vidéo développé par Valve Software. Il s'agit d'une évolution de Counter-Strike utilisant le moteur Source. Comme dans l'original, Counter-Strike: Source met en scène une équipe d'anti-terroristes contre une équipe de terroristes dans une série de rounds. Chaque round est gagné soit en effectuant la mission (explosion de la bombe ou sauvetage d'otages) soit en éliminant tous les membres de l'équipe opposée. Counter Strike: Source est l'un des jeux phare du sport électronique.

Système de jeu

Counter-Strike: Source hérite des caractéristiques de Half-Life 2, pour l'apparence et le style des textures et des mouvements, et de son prédécesseur, Counter-Strike 1.6, pour le style de jeu. Le style de jeu classique de deux équipes - terroristes contre anti-terroristes - les mettant en confrontation dans une série de manches dans lesquelles chaque équipe doit soit effectuer son objectif, soit éliminer l'adversaire, reste inchangé. Les grenades aveuglantes ont été modifiées visuellement pour profiter des avantages du moteur Source, et sont désormais plus puissantes et efficaces que dans les jeux précédents, et les fumigènes ont un système de déploiement moins opaque qui permet une efficacité supérieure.

Dans les compétitions, seules les cartes de jeu ayant comme objectif la pose d'une bombe sont utilisées car l'intelligence artificielle des otages n'a pas été améliorée depuis les versions précédentes et n'est pas compatible avec la compétition.


Il existe de nombreux modes de jeu différents fonctionnant sur Counter-Strike: Source. Chacun porte un nom différent souvent abrégé par un acronyme ("de" et "cs" étant les plus populaires). Les cartes de jeu associées à ce mode sont facilement repérables grâce au préfixe dans le nom de la carte.
