Counter-Strike Global Offensive features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic Counter-Strike content. In addition, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.
Counter-Strike became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediate after its release in August 1999. For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise.
Operation Payback is the first of an ongoing series of limited-time updates aimed at giving a well-earned financial reward to some of CS:GO's most popular and prolific mapmakers.
Available from now until July 31st, 2013, "Operation Payback" is a collection of seven top-voted Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) community maps hosted on official servers and available to play with the purchase of a pass. Since its launch in February, the CS:GO Maps Workshop has amassed over 1,400 community-made maps.
"Operation Payback" offers the CS:GO community a chance to play seven of the highest-voted Workshop Maps through the uninterrupted low-ping play of official servers - all while rewarding the makers of CS:GO's top-rated virtual maps with real money.
Buying a pass also lets players bring their friends along to any "Operation Payback" match. Contributors will also get to show off their support with a one-of-a-kind challenge coin, upgradable by playing and viewable wherever their avatars are shown. For a limited time players can buy a pass for only $2.99 (USD).
