But, Ma! All my friends are doing it!

Yes, Counter-Strike. And if all your friends decided cruising out into the middle of a zombie apocalypse was a good idea, would you do that too?

Actually, you bet your ass I would.

And that's how little Timmy got sent to bed without his supper. It's also --give or take a bit of BS-- how the zombies infested Counter-Strike. Again.

There is a stench of me-too-ism about this, after all. The undead are truly de rigueur, and they seem to be shuffling into any video game they can on those rotting stumps of theirs. On that note, feast your brain-hungry eyes on Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies.

This is a series spin-off from Nexon, developers of Counter-Strike Online. Kotaku bring us a suitably shit-your-pants-excited press release:
"Expanding one of the top first-person shooter (FPS) titles across the world, Nexon teamed up with Valve to unleash a new zombie-themed, free-to-play CS title featuring new game modes, creatures, and more. Fast-paced, frenetic action awaits, as a wide variety of new weapons are added to the fray, with diverse game modes available, featuring countless undead. The zombies in the game are quick, aggressive, and dangerous, which makes for a completely new experience."

The franchise is no stranger to zombies, as fans will know, but this will be quite a departure right here. Hit the link for more on this free-to-play offering, coming our way in the next few months.
