Along with the official announcement, it has been confirmed a first closed beta of Counter-Strike 2 which only certain professional players have access to, so no, you can’t test CS2 yet.

For now, unless you are a professional Counter-Strike player or a content creator, you will not be able to enjoy all the new features of the game. However, it is possible that Valve will release more betas through the summer.

We are in spring and therefore there are still more than 3 months until summer, so during all these weeks it is likely that Valve confirms a new closed beta and several open.

Given that CS:GO will only be updated for free, it is likely that Valve will add another exe on Steam than the one for CS:GO to test the game and perhaps open it to the public.

Valve’s idea is that professionals, those who know the most about the game, do something first test to try and give everything necessary feedback to the company and confirmed everything that could be improved.

Therefore, don’t be alarmed. When we can play the Counter-Strike 2 beta, we will update the same article and give you all the details step by step to be able to play it from minute 0.

Changes to notice in Counter-Strike 2

  • Smoke interacting with the environment
    • Smoke grenades now expand across the stage and adapt to terrain physics, allowing them to open openings with normal grenades and weapon shots
  • New lighting and textures for all cards in the game

  • improvement inside tics of the servers

Secondary taps, or sub-characters, are the heart of Counter-Strike 2. Previously, the server only evaluated the world at specific time intervals (called characters). Thanks to Counter-Strike 2’s subtick update architecture, the servers know exactly when movement begins, when shots are fired, or when a grenade is thrown. As a result, regardless of the frequency of taps, your movements and shots will be just as accurate and your grenades will always fall the same way.
