Counter-strike: GO to miss planned October open beta

Monday, 31st October 2011 14:29 GMT By Debabrata Nath

Valve’s Chet Faliszek has confirmed that Counter-strike: Global Offensive will be missing its planned October open beta due to pro-gamer feedback.

He confirmed the delay in an interview with ESEA.

He also said that the open beta will start with only one or two maps, with new content gradually being added as launch nears.

The beta will kick off with 10,000 testers, Faliszek said, and will feature some new add-ons, like a new crosshair with additional weapon info.

The game’s spectator feature will share tech with another upcoming Valve title – DOTA 2.

Counter-strike: Global Offensive launches next year for PC, Xbox Live and PSN.

Thanks, Nowgamer.

    Can anyone tell me what the difference on this CS and the others are? From what i’ve seen there is only a very limited number of new weapons, and the graphics are hardly updated plus they use the same maps as they did in the original CS, cz and source. Is there something i’ve missed? o.O

    @5, if u actually play cs u’ll know that its not just a new name. The aim of this game is to join the players of CS 1.6 and CSS in one game. Also Valve wants to extend to the console players.
