Valve has just announced the release of the highly anticipated Counter-Strike 2, the latest iteration of the widely popular competitive FPS game.
According to the developer, Counter-Strike 2 is a complete overhaul of every aspect of the Counter-Strike experience, from its systems to its content.
The announcement is accompanied by a series of videos explaining how the new version will revolutionize the game. The videos cover changes to maps, smokes, and most importantly, moving beyond tick rates.
Valve states that Counter Strike 2 servers are currently undergoing a limited test, with the full launch expected to take place this summer. The game promises to be the biggest technical leap forward in the game’s history, with new features and updates for years to come.
Perhaps the most exciting news for Counter-Strike fans is that Counter-Strike 2 will be a free upgrade to Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Moreover, players will be able to keep their entire CS:GO inventory, which will benefit from Source 2 lighting and materials. The game will also feature high-resolution models and some weapon finishes that take advantage of these new models.
With sub-tick updates and the promise of a complete overhaul, Counter-Strike 2 servers are poised to bring a new level of competitive play to the game. It is an exciting time for fans of the franchise, and we cannot wait to see what the future holds.
