ThunderBolt: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is about maintaining a brand. Following the release of Source, there was a division in the community. While many would move on to Source for it’s revamped visuals and more forgiving mechanics, purists largely stuck with the mechanically tight Counter-Strike 1.6. The hope with Global Offensive is that it might reunite the community, while also making an appeal to a new generation of gamer. The danger is that it could once again fracture the community beyond repair.
