Counter-Strike's Most Famous Map Gets Revamped, Available To Test Now

Counter-Strike's Most Famous Map Gets Revamped, Available To Test Now

"Perhaps the quintessential CS:GO map, Dust II has been a classic since its original release", the developer wrote on official site.

If there ever was a fan-favorite map in shooters, it's de_dust and de_dust2 in Counter-Strike.

Valve made the announcement via a tweet.

The new update aimed to retain the same tactical map that was so loved by the community but gives it a much-needed facelift. According to the released information, the updated version will debut in the next CS: GO beta depot. The last game update was October 5, which consisted of small, additional changes to the molotov-smoke bug fix.

For a rundown of the changes - including side-by-side comparisons - head over here. At the time of writing, Valve has not specified a time-frame, but expectations are it will arrive in the next few weeks.

Dust 2 has been out of CS: GO's Active Duty rotation since February.

On Monday Valve announced that it was overhauling Dust2, Counter-Strike's most iconic map, and now it has detailed all the changes, released images and opened the arena up for beta testing in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. When Dust II is returned to the competitive pool, another map will be pulled out of play so it can be fixed up.

The visual upgrades are also extending to the game's character models, with the Terrorist team getting some higher-resolution models to match the environment.
