Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Closed Beta Is Live

Posted on December 1, 2011 AT 06:19am

THE BUZZ: As of today, December 1, the closed beta for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is live.

Valve delayed the beta to implement changes being made from professional player feedback. If you have a key to the beta you can download it now. If not you’ll have to wait for the game’s release to the masses early next year.

EGM’s TAKE: Those of you lucky enough to have a key should get going and enjoy the most highly anticipated PC FPS of 2012 right now.

Are you looking forward to Global offensive? Leave a comment below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
