Counter Strike 2 is coming out in the summer of 2023!

On the official Counter-Strike Twitter account, Valve announced on Tuesday that they were "excited to announce Counter-Strike 2 today.". CS:GO will receive a free update this summer that will include Counter-Strike 2, according to Valve's official Counter-Strike 2 site.

There will be a limited test build made available today for select players who want to play the game and Valve will use the feedback to improve the game before it is released to the public. There will be a notification on your CS:GO main menu letting you know if you have been selected to participate in the limited test.

In order to get started, you simply need to choose "ENROLL" and begin the download process. If you've ever been banned from CS:GO by Valve, it will be taken into account among other things. If you've ever been banned from CS:GO for any reason, you'll be out of luck.

Several changes are coming with the new engine, and some were announced along with the announcement of the game. The new engine will give smoke grenades an entirely new dimension, adding more depth to the tactics used by terrorists and changing the way in which counterterrorism teams defend bomb sites in the future.

New details

In Counter-Strike 2, you will also find that your movement and shooting habits will be changed. In previous versions of Counter-Strike, the difference in milliseconds caused by the tick system was one of the factors that determined whether your shot hit the enemy or not.

It should be noted that Valve introduced sub-tick updates in Counter-Strike 2, which means that the tick rate no longer matters for movement or shooting, both of which are crucial elements of the game. As part of the announcement, Valve also stated that Counter-Strike 2 will improve maps in every way possible.

It is inevitable that the maps will change, but as Valve wants to keep some of its legacy, players who have spent hundreds of hours playing Counter-Strike will still be familiar with the maps in Counter-Strike 2. In order to deal with the issue of map changes, Valve has taken three approaches: Touchstones, Upgrades, and Remontis.
