Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies coming to Steam later this year.

A new Counter-Strike game will be released this year on Steam, but it's probably not what you're expecting. Nexon today announced Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies (yes, Nexon's name is actually part of the title), a free-to-play game developed in collaboration with Valve, and due to launch on Steam across North America and Europe later this year.

Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies will feature traditional Counter-Strike models like Hostage Rescue and Bomb Diffusion, as well as a "new zombie-based experience." The new zombie-themed mode introduces new weapons and "diverse game modes."

The zombies in the game are described as quick, aggressive, and dangerous. Though Nexon says the gameplay in Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is fast-paced and frenetic, the company also uses the term "easy-to-play" to describe the overall game. As a result, the game "reaches out to all players," Nexon Europe CEO Kenny Chang said in a statement.

"Today we are announcing the latest creation from Nexon in the Counter-Strike world, one that builds upon years of success in developing Counter-Strike Online for Asia," Valve's Doug Lombardi said. "This title showcases that work in new zombie and classic form."

Counter-Strike Online was released in 2008 as a free-to-play game in Asia. The most recent entry in the core series was 2012's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which is currently available for PC, Xbox360, and PlayStation 3.

Nexon is also publishing Gears of War creator Cliff Bleszinski's upcoming free-to-play game, which is under production as Project Bluestreak. Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is also coming to Oceania and the Commonwealth of Independent States region.

It may be premature to declare that before-and-after comparison videos are all the rage, but hot on the heels of yesterday's Project CARS trailer comes something similar for the upcoming Metro Redux. Major visual updates to both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are at the top of the menu, but there's a lot more to it than just a new coat of paint.

The video initially focuses on visual improvements to the console versions of the games, which will now be able to provide the same level of visual fidelity as a high-spec PC on the originals. Contemporary high-end PCs will still have the advantage in Redux, however, through support for 4K resolution and a wide array of graphical enhancements.

But the really interesting stuff is happening under the hood. The AI is improved, and features that were previously exclusive to Last Light, including better stealth gameplay, weapon customization and non-lethal takedowns, will also appear in 2033. New secrets, hidden areas and encounters have been added, and previously separate locations have been "seamlessly stitched together." Two new play modes have been added, Spartan and Survival, and Ranger mode is now available in both games.

I was a pretty big fan of the Metro games when they were new, so I was sold on the Redux release pretty much from the moment I heard about it; if it's possible, I think I'm ever more sold now. Metro Redux launches on August 26.

I somehow managed to miss the announcement of Game Time on Origin, and so when the Battlefield 4 freebie was revealed today I thought it was part of some exciting, new way to deal up free stuff. It's not, obviously, but that's not important: What's important is that you can now blow an entire week on Battlefield 4 at absolutely no cost.

Game Time is kind of like On the House, except that instead of a straight-up giveaway, the games in question come with an expiry date—and instead of playing Peggle or Wing Commander 3, you're playing Titanfall or Battlefield 4. It offers "full access to the entire gameplay experience," and progress is saved so if you decide to spring for a game after the free trial expires, you can pick up where you left off.

Battlefield 4 will be available through Game Time until August 14, but the one-week of free play won't actually begin until the first time you launch the game. Get it here.

Pro Counter-Strike players are, like their job suggests, really good at Counter-Strike. They are better at Counter-Strike than, say, you (even though I'm sure you are really good). That's why, for the upcoming ESL One Cologne 2014 CS:GO Championship, Valve have arranged a system in which the pros get to play Counter-Strike, and you get to play with stickers

The Cologne 2014 Pick'Em Challenge event lets you predict the winning teams of each ESL One match. It's a bit like gambling, only there's no money involved. Or, more accurately, there is money involved, but all of it goes to Valve.

To pick a team, you'll need an unused sticker—available from in-game sticker capsules, or from the Steam Marketplace. Once used, each sticker will be locked for the day, but can be reused for future matches.

Do well, and you can earn a Pick'Em Challenge trophy for your Steam profile. Also, the knowledge that you're really good at determining who's really good at Counter-Strike.

Valve have more plans for the event, which they'll be announcing soon.
