Valve Software is ramping up for the latest Counter-Strike update, version 1.6, which should be available this Thursday, January 16. As problematic CS: Condition Zero fumbles from one developer to the next, the original Half-Life mod continues to sustain Valve's delusion that they are a viable development house.
Version 1.6 will be delivered only via Valve's own Stream 2.0 technology. Along with a smattering of token bug fixes, 1.6 introduces a new Airstrip map, as well as two new weapons, the terrorist Galil and the counter-terrorist FAMAS. Also added is a counter-terrorist ballistic shield. For more detailed information on the upcoming patch visit here.
