Last night, Valve finally released Counter-Strike 2 in a free update that replaces the legendary Global Offensive. Thus, it is the end of an era of historical licensing that has reached new heights, without a sequel revolutionizing the formula.
Even if you’ve never played on PC in your life, you probably haven’t missed the Counter-Strike phenomenon since its release. Originally, the Half-Life mod was published in 1998, Valve quickly found the right thing and published Counter-Strike as a standalone version in 2000. Several compositions were later released, in particular Condition Zero, but in 2012 everything changed. Global aggression.
From there, there was no stopping Counter-Strike, which became one of the most popular competitive FPS games in the world. This year again, despite its age, the game regularly gathers more than a million simultaneous players. However, since yesterday, CS:GO, as it is called, no longer exists. Or rather, the game has moved to the next level. After months of teasing, Valve has finally decided to release the game Counter Strike 2in the update published yesterday.
