Free-to-Play Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies May Include Original Game Too

By   /   Aug 7, 2014

This is likely to go down badly with a lot of people, but publisher Nexon has announced the creation of Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies. It’s an official release in collaboration with Valve, which will be put on Steam in fall of 2014.

As per Nexon’s usual model, Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies will be a free-to-play adaptation of the iconic first-person shooter. Except, naturally, this new version will have undead crawling around its universe.

Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies will append the known classic with new creatures, game modes and weapons. It promises a fast pace.

Perhaps even tougher to swallow for fans, this version may also include the actual version of the game inside of it. In the release, it states:

In addition to the new zombie based experience, players can also have the original Counter-Strike experience, through modes like Hostage Rescue and Bomb Diffusion.

Even we’re apprehensive to have Counter-Strike’s fragile economy opened up to a freemium model, but Valve is no stranger to the mechanisms. Hopefully something sensible will come out of it.

Nexon has already released an iteration of Valve’s shooter with Counter-Strike Online in Turkey. Recently, the company has been branching out into multiple high-profile shooters.

For instance, Nexon will be handling the latest game from Cliffy B and it also announced a partnership with ex-Call of Duty’s Robert Bowling on their title, Human Element. The company has a roster of other titles that include anything from MapleStory to the more recent football manager, United Eleven.

Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies; it’s going to take some time to get used to that name, but we’re interested to see how this will play out.
