Valve has recently announced a game preview for "Counter-Strike 2," featuring a ranking points system for each map. According to the latest reports on September 1, Valve officially released a video explaining the ranking point system of the priority mode of "Counter-Strike 2" today, which initially introduced the game's ranking point system. It was revealed that the game will include regional/global rankings, and each map will have an independent points ranking. The video also showcased a refurbished Purgatory Town map. The official spokesperson invited players to participate in the test, starting from today, and emphasized that "Counter-Strike 2" will be launched in the summer of 2023. Source: Valve Although the exact release date remains unknown, it is speculated that "Counter-Strike 2" may be available after September 22, following the end of daylight saving time in North America. Developed using the Source2 engine, "Counter-Strike 2" offers free upgrades for "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive" players, serving as a free alternative to CS: GO. Key changes in the game include modifications to the smoke system, lighting, water, particle effects, and visual accessory optimization. Additionally, a "sub-refresh rate" mechanism is introduced, significantly enhancing the gameplay experience. Earlier, Valve highlighted three novel aspects of this game: A sub-tick delay compensation system, a revamped dynamic smoke system, and updated, transformed, and remade maps. Player inventories from CS: GO will synchronize with those in Counter-Strike 2, and all accessories will adapt to source 2 lighting and texture effects.
