The galaxy’s ablaze with alien terror and deceit. The unstable peace between the different intergalactic factions is at risk when a mysterious alien armada known as Voids uses sophisticated wormhole technology to raid defenceless cargo ships and convoys in the territories of the Terrans, Vossk, Nivelians and Midorians. Assuming the role of the hot-headed space war hero and mercenary Keith T. Maxwell, you will have to face this seemingly invincible enemy and save the galaxy from its impending destruction on the hands of the Voids.
Danger, thrill and passion will be your constant companions as you set course for the final frontier and engage in an epic spacefaring adventure that requires you to display tactical intuition, diplomatic refinement, fighting spirit and bravery in equal shares. The galaxy’s on fire and only you can beat down the flames!

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched 12 years ago.
CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.
"Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999," said Doug Lombardi at Valve. "For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise. CS: GO promises to expand on CS' award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac."

The Expendables 2 Videogame is a way for fans to experience all of their favorite explosive moments, as their favorite stars, in Four-Player Co-op action.
