Valve is returning to the market with its new version of the popular tactical shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, a decade after its initial release.
Although the rumors have been circulating in the market for a long time, they are authentic news for certain reasons.
A journalist, Richard Lewis, has revealed that this news has a credible history. Earlier, in 2015 it was confirmed that a major professional CS:GO team had intentionally thrown a match.
Secondly, the news is not in the air. There is evidence to support his claims. Earlier this month, some CS:GO fans found references to “csgo2.exe” and “cs2.exe” in Nvidia’s GPU drivers starting in February.
Sports Journalist: According to Richard Lewis, Valve is in the process of developing a sequel. To CS: Go now for a while.
The version is available with a beta release, expected later this month. According to Lewis, the studio recently conducted playtests for the game in April. Along with a group of professional athletes who traveled to Seattle.
According to reports from various sources, Valve plans to begin its beta testing phase with the wider Counter-Strike community by April 1st. It prioritizes releasing and improving the game to meet player expectations.
According to the latest news, the upcoming version of Counter-Strike will have better graphics due to the migration to Source 2, Valve’s latest in-house game engine.
However, the game will also support 128-tick servers, which will help reduce latency and align CS with Valorant. This time Valve has also significantly improved the matchmaking experience. This will reduce the community’s dependency on third party services like FACEIT.
Counterstrike 2- Current priority of the valve
Counter-Strike 2 is Valve’s studio priority, according to sources. The first-person shooter series Counter-Strike 2 has been in development for some time.
Additionally, the source also revealed that the game is “ready to hit the market.” While it is also expected that the beta launch will be released soon in March-April.
According to sources, putting valuable resources behind the development of Counter-Strike 2 is one of the reasons why ‘CS:GO’ maintenance has stopped in recent times.
“The big priority is getting it out and then polishing it up. Fixing any bugs and then bringing it up to the level people expect from CS,” a report said.
Sequel with better graphics and better matchmaking
Valve reports that Counter-Strike 2 is set to leverage the power of Valve’s Source 2 game engine. The wording reveals that the new game will bring visual and performance-focused improvements over its predecessors.
On the other hand, players who are fond of ‘CS: GO’ without issues may not experience playing its sequel.
While online matchmaking is also seeing improvement. In contrast, Counter-Strike 2 can use the matchmaking process available in its predecessor.
Alas, this aspect of the sequel is slated as “a work in progress” and will improve over time.
