"The epitome of an addictive multiplayer game."

Counter-Strike (Xbox; CSX) is a first-person shooter video game derived mostly from Counter-Strike: Condition Zero.


Counter-Strike (Xbox; CSX) was released on November 18, 2003 (NA) and December 5, 2003 (EU) utilizing Valve's Half-Life GoldSrc engine. It is the first installment of the series released on consoles featuring multiplayer (via Xbox LIVE), singleplayer, and training modes with a variety of both bomb defusal and hostage maps. Unlike its PC counter-part, CSX does not have a "Tour of Duty" mode, however, this is the first title in the series with the so-called "Counter-Strike bot" integrated into both singleplayer and multiplayer.


Counter-Strike (Xbox) was the first installment released on consoles and to integrate the so-called "Counter-Strike bot" (not Counter-Strike: Condition Zero).


Bomb Defusal (de)Edit

Hostage Rescue (cs)Edit


Unlike Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, the console version did not suffer from development complications, contributions from Ritual Entertainment, Turtle Rock Studios, and Valve paved the way for an optimal release window. On November 18, 2003 and later on December 5, 2003, CSX was released on Microsoft's original Xbox console in North America and Europe respectively.  Utilizing the same engine as Counter-Strike: Condition Zero (Valve's Half-Life GoldSrc engine), the launch resulted in an unprecented success before its PC counter-part was even released establishing huge anticipation when it would later launch on its primary platform of choice.

On December 16, 2003, Inferno and Office were released as free DLC; which was simply an unlock for a hidden path that already contained the two maps otherwise known as "Disc DLC"[1]

Release NotesEdit

Counter-Strike (Xbox) has only been released via retail; DLC may be accessed via the original Xbox LIVE Marketplace, which has since shut down as part of Microsoft's Xbox LIVE scaling strategy.
