Counter Strike 2 Limited Test

Counter Strike 2 Limited Test

Valve has officially announced the limited release of Counter-Strike 2 on Twitter with an overhaul to every system, content, and experience in the game. According to the game’s website CS2 is set to be the largest technical leap forward in Counter-Strike’s history, with improved mechanics, maps, visuals, audio, and UI enhancements. The game will be free to play and is based on Valve’s Source 2 engine. The full game is expected to launch in the summer of 2023, with years of updates and new features promised.

The limited test for CS2 has begun, with gamers being selected to join it based on factors such as recent playtime on Valve official servers, trust factor, and Steam account standing. The limited test is only available on Windows for now and is limited to playing on Counter-Strike’s Dust II map in Deathmatch and unranked competitive matchmaking modes. Other modes and maps will arrive in future test releases. Valve has stated that all the items collected in CS:GO will be available in the new game, and players’ skills should carry over.

Valve is evaluating a subset of the game’s features during the limited testing period, with the full range of new features being announced at launch. The company has noted that there’s “much more to come” and that all the details of Counter-Strike 2 will be revealed in just “a few months.” The game’s announcement comes after weeks of speculation about a potential upgrade, with esports journalist Richard Lewis reporting that an overhauled CS:GO is in the works. Valve’s timing with the announcement during Epic’s State of Unreal event at the 2023 Game Developers Conference is interesting.
