Valve has released a series of videos that explain the changes and improvements coming to the game. These videos focus on smokes, moving beyond tick rates, and map updates. You can watch them below:
One major innovation is the introduction of sub-tick updates, which will make gameplay more responsive and accurate. This means that regardless of tick rate, players will enjoy an equally smooth gaming experience.
As per the information on the official Counter-Strike 2 website, players can expect improved weapon accuracy and hit registration, enhanced graphics with realistic physics, and an upgraded Source 2 engine. The game will also feature new game modes and revamped classic modes, catering to both newcomers and long-time fans of the series.
Counter-Strike 2 is currently running a limited test for select CS:GO players, and it’s set to launch fully in the summer. Valve has described this update as “the largest technical leap forward in Counter-Strike’s history” and promises new features and updates for years to come.
The best part? Counter-Strike 2 will be a FREE upgrade for CS:GO players, ensuring a massive launch and continued popularity. All of your hard-earned CS:GO inventory items will carry over to Counter-Strike 2 and benefit from the upgraded Source 2 lighting and materials. The game will also support all existing custom maps and game modes, ensuring a seamless transition for the community.
Moreover, Valve has ensured that Counter-Strike 2 will be compatible with a wide range of hardware, making it accessible to as many players as possible. They have also committed to supporting the esports scene by launching new competitive leagues and tournaments.
