Osama bin Laden's hideout recreated in CS:S

Osama bin Laden’s final hiding spot in Abbottabad, Pakistan, has been made into a playable map for Counter-Strike: Source. Honestly, we’re a little surprised that it took this long.

Fletch, the map’s creator has explained that there are plans to, perhaps, make this into a “bomb or hostage map” at a later stage, but right now it’s ‘just’ a general purpose multiplayer map based on what we know about bin Laden’s mansion.

So far, ratings have been positive, and the modding community at [surl=http://www.gamebanana.com/maps/156014]GameBanana[/surl] have been calming each other down, squishing calls of “Too soon!”. The map itself looks pretty polished and well-made, and you can grab fy_abbottabad (1.41MB) from the playerattack File Library.
