Valve is getting into the holiday spirit by offering a Winter Offensive update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which adds two new maps, two new weapon cases, and some presents.

First up is the Winter Offensive Case, which includes a batch of the most interesting and popular weapon skins from the CS: GO Steam workshop. Next is the eSports Winter Case, which replaces the previous eSports case. Like its last iteration this case contains a number of new weapon skins, with a portion of each sale bring used to fund future eSports events.

The update also includes three gifts, the first is a Gift Package, which will grant a random item to one player in your match. Next is the Pallet of Presents, offering random items to up to nine people in your match, and finally there’s the Audience Participation Parcel, which will give a random item to 25 spectators of your match.

Finally there are two new maps, Cobblestone and Overpass, which are only available via the Operation Bravo pass, but will be added into the general public matchmaking system after testing.

You can check out the new maps and weapon skins here.
