CS:GO launches next week, and in collaboration with a mod team over at Plaguefest.com, Valve have released a zombie modification for CS:GO that will be made available alongside the FPS' launch, specifically for PC, on August 21. A blog post over on the official Counter-Strike site has said:

It was important to us as we developed CS:GO to make sure it was as moddable and extensible as any CS game. So this is just one of the many mods that will be available in the coming months.
