Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Gets New Maps, Modes, and a Map Workshop

Posted on February 8, 2013 AT 03:39am

Valve has released a new update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive which adds two new game modes, new maps, and a Map Workshop tool.

The Map Workshop allows players to view, rate, and download maps created by the community. Two new modes have also been added to the game which can be played on dedicated servers:

  • Control: Is similar to Call of Duty‘s Domination where spawns are reliant on which flags you control, once a team runs out of respawns the game ends.
  • Rooftop Control: Is the same sort of game except one team must capture flags while the other sits on a rooftop across the map with sniper rifles.
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.
