Counter-Strike 2 (Free to play)

Valve’s Counter-Strike 2 is now officially available, replacing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Describing it as “the largest technical leap forward in Counter-Strike’s history, ensuring new features and updates for years to come.” Announced back in March, Counter-Strike 2 brings plenty of new features, updated maps, and more.

In a blog post announcing the availability, Valve says that returning players will find their favorite maps and matchmaking modes, as well as a revamped Premier mode for the new CS Rating. The biggest update is the sub-tick architecture, promising that the server will now know “the exact instant that motion starts, a shot is fired, or a ‘nade is thrown.” Valve also released the new patch, launching the game and bringing some fixes and new features and modes that were previously unavailable.

Counter-Strike 2 already has very positive reviews over at Steam, and it is already at the top of the “top seller” list, leaving behind Cyberpunk 2077, Dota 2, and PUBG: Battlegrounds. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive managed to hit a peak of 1,8 million concurrent players in April, so it remains to be seen if Counter-Strike 2 will be able to break that record.

Here are the full release notes for the latest patch.

Patch

Previously played“CSOL2”, and then full server off. I thought the V club gaming team had disbanded and the official announcement was that they would no longer be making CS games.
