After six months of closed testing and more than a decade after the release of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Counter-Strike 2 has been transferred to the Source 2 engine, and now shows improved graphics. But the main changes are not in the visual part, but in the technical part.
So, thanks to the sub-tick structure, players’ movements and shooting do not depend on the server refresh rate, which eliminates possible delays. Smoke from smoke grenades now interacts with the environment, so it can be dispersed by bullets and grenades. All sound effects have been changed. Valve also updated the interface, redesigned the rating system and made many other changes.
Everyone can already play Counter-Strike 2; the game is available for free on Steam.
