A rather bare bones version of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now available for free.
For those who’ve wanted to jump into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive but didn’t want to fork over $14.99, there’s now a free version available.
The free version doesn’t feature an online component. This means instead of a real person in your sights, it will be a bot.
If you are keen though, it also allows players to spectate matches through GOTV.
CS:GO Free Edition is available for Linux, Mac, and PC through Steam.
