The Counter-Strike team is excited to announce the launch of the Map Workshop for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
. Now it’s easy to discover and play new maps and game modes designed by the Counter-Strike community. The game is on sale for 50% off
through the weekend, so now is the perfect time to pick up a copy for yourself or your friends!
Using the Map Workshop is easy! The game has been updated with a new Map Browser where you can select the “Map Workshop” tab or you can visit the workshop from the CS:GO Community Hub
Browse the Map Workshop, vote for your favorites, and subscribe to any map that grabs your interest. Your game client will automatically download the map, and it will update every time the author makes a change. You can quickmatch into a community server running your new map, set up a private match through Play With Friends, or explore the map offline with bots.
The Map Workshop also has a ton of features for server operators and map makers. If you’re running a server, you can use the Map Workshop to quickly find the most popular community maps. All you have to do is subscribe, and you’ll always have the most up to date version available.
Working on a map? Don’t hesitate to get your rough draft up on the Workshop. You can update your map as often as you’d like, and players and servers will stay current. The best way to test a map is to get players in there, so publish early and publish often!
Beyond the overall design of the map, map makers can now specify a wide range of gameplay-affecting settings. Stick to the standard CS formula, or create a totally new experience for players. The Map Workshop provides infinite gameplay, with every kind of Counter-Strike the community can dream up.
New maps, new gameplay, and an easy way to join and contribute to the CS:GO community. What are you waiting for?
GO! GO! GO!
