Default CSX Previews Follow-up

CSX will have an exclusive mode that "may be available as downloadable content on the launch date." No more details yet.

Does Valve intend to bring back escape (es)? It was listed as a mode in all of the CSX previews so far.

New Player Model Renders

Militia Urban w/ G3/SG-1 Sniper Rifle
Phoenix Connection (Terror) w/ SSG552 Commando
Guerilla Jungle (Guerilla) w/ AK-47
Drug Lord w/ M60E Machine Gun
Spetsnaz w/ LAW Rocket Launcher
SEAL (US) w/ XM1014
Guerilla Desert (Arab) w/ SSG552 Commando
SAS operative (UK) w/ Colt M4A1 Carbine
Japanese CT w/ Colt M4A1 Carbine
GIGN w/ Colt M4A1 Carbine (old)

Are those the finalized player models that will be featured in CZ? What's the deal with the SAS geezer and what organization does the Japanese CT belong to?

Yes Xbox gets the exclusive MP scenario, I am going to have a heart attack if I hear one more thing exclusive for the F***ing Xbox (Blood pressure rising, rage increasing!!!!). Damnit come on what else is there!!! Errrrr.... I don't like seeing the game I have been playing for 3years+ go away to the Xbox with fetures only FOR XBOX! Why don't they just take the damn game away from the PC all together! Yes, there are some down sides to the Xbox, but why has ritual only been saying stuff about Xbox, not the PC, why don't we give something exclusive for the pc! Like a model or better something than the Xbox!!! I already know that the xbox doesn't have vertical play not much of a choice for logos (No porn logos!!), and only the mods valve aproves making that we get more and the player can't make any mods for Xbox. Only the pc gamers can make them. Just to say we have an exclusive model or effect would be enough.(Calming down) Sorry, it just makes me so mad to hear this only being for xbox. Okay I'm calm, well just see how good the xbox version really is...errrrrrr. [img]/forums/images/icons/mad.gif[/img]

Who gives a shit come on dont be a bitch, cz for xbox can suck ass too cause not many people are hardcore gamers and are gonna play the xbox online. Many people would just play it on a pc so dont whine. Also escape maps sucked and always will suck.

Great link Madonion.

I don't mind the extra scenario for XBOX, probably an exclusive for say 3-6 months only. The model renders are kick ass and are WAY better than the re-colors Gearbox had originally intended. My question is the same as yours: Who do the Japanese CTs represent? Why not go with Hong Kong's famed SDUs which actually exist and has a history of training with the SAS/SBS if you need CT action in Asia?

Well, Japan is bigger for one and neo-nazi's still exist there.

If everyone's so worried about the XBox getting a new scenario why don't you just mod a new one yourself? Or make a new map that the XBox won't have.

Just play the game and stop the wining.


And On-Topic!

Nice Renders and is it just me but one of them (SAS with M4) look like somewhat like Sean Connery?

Edit time expired... some corrections:

SEAL = SAS
SAS operative = SAS coordinator

The Japanese CT belongs to one of the following organizations:

- Security Bureau, National Police Agency (NPA) - security intelligence on foreigners and radical political groups; secret special ops division
- Public Security Investigation Agency (PSIA) - counter-espionage
- Defence Intelligence Headquarters (DIH) - intelligence-gathering for the military

Try to find pics of their uniforms. I haven't heard much in the news about Japanese intelligence agencies. But I don't watch the news. [img]/forums/images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Their current goal is probably spying on North Korea or China.

Thanks for the response Mad Onion. I've never heard of Japanese Spec Ops until your post. Good info.

He could probably kick my ass 9 times before I hit the ground, though

Condition Zero will contain 7 new counter-terrorist teams and 2 new terrorist factions. One of the new CT teams are the Kidotai (Japanese riot police), who we saw featured in a few single-player maps.

[/ QUOTE ]I was close! Kidôtai, the riot police, is a mobile unit of the NPA.

[/ QUOTE ] I read that as 7 new CT teams and 2 new T factions in single-player only. The GameSpy preview is based on a single-player E3 demo. IGN went to Valve's office in Washington severals weeks ago for a look at the multiplayer component. Here's the info from Valve:

</font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
Condition Zero will have six models for each side with four versions of each. Since some of the models are tied to specific locations (arctic and desert fatigues, for example) you might not see all 48 player models used at once.

[/ QUOTE ]I think this applies to multiplayer. 6 teams per side makes sense to me.
