There's another Counter-Strike game coming out - but this one is a little different.

Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is based on the famous first-person shooter series and is made by Korean company Nexon in collaboration with Valve. It's free-to-play and is set for a western launch on Steam during the third quarter of 2014.

As you'd expect from the game's title, Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is packed with zombies. They're quick and aggressive, according to the official blurb. The game also includes Counter-Strike modes Hostage Rescue and Bomb Diffusion.

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

Nexon and Valve have worked together for some time on Counter-Strike Online for Asia. There's a zombie mode in the latest release, Counter-Strike Online 2. You can check that out in the video below.
