Counter-Strike 2 is finally available for everyone to download from Steam. The game has been available for a limited number of gamers in limited testing. Counter-Strike 2 is replacing the popular first-person shooting game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gamers will receive a free update of Counter-Strike 2. The update automatically transfers all purchased skins and cosmetics to the new version. Existing CS: Go maps are getting lighting improvements. Counter-Strike 2 includes the following maps: Mirage, Overpass, Vertigo, Ancient, Inferno, Nuke, Anubis, Dust 2, Office, and Italy.
The company has redesigned the game from the ground to suit the modern aesthetic. The most notable change in the game is super-reactive to movement, volumetric 3D smokes, and an all-new rating system.
Counter-Strike 2 is the fourth major release in the Counter-Strike series. The original game was launched back in 2000 and it was based on mod for Valve’s Half-Life. The company released Counter-Strike: Source in 2004 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in 2012. CS: GO is still a popular game that has close to 1 million active players. The game also recorded more than 1.5 million simultaneous players on Steam earlier this year.
