GTTV’s aired the first trailer for Valve’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, as details on the game emerge from playtests at the company’s Washington HQ.

Kotaku reports that while PC gamers will have its normal control options open to them, with 360 owners only able to use a gamepad, PS3 users will have the choice of either a DualShock, PlayStation Move and even a keyboard and mouse. That might be worth mentioning again:keyboard and mouse. On PS3.

The game will also release with five maps for Bomb/Defuse mode, with two others for Hostage Rescue. All seven maps are based from Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter-Strike Source.

Cross-platform play between PC/Mac and PS3 players, similar to that of Portal 2, was also confirmed, with players being brought together based on skill and regardless of what it uses to control the game on either platform.

A beta will also kick off in October, with PAX and Eurogamer Expo attendees getting beta codes.

Get the first trailer below. Game’s out next year on Steam, PSN and Xbox Live Arcade.
