Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Release Date and Price Set
Valve has finally announced the release date and price for the newest iteration of Counter-Strike. Everyone knew a late summer release was likely in the cards, and now we have exactly that: An official release date of August 21 for a modest price of $15.
Updates for CS:GO have been coming out frequently in recent weeks, with recent patches adding important elements like custom servers and expanded team sizes. Now, with a release planned for just over two months from now, the beta should continue to pick up even more speed. The game has come leaps and bounds beyond where it was in the beginning of beta, and while the competitive community is still showing concern over the game’s direction, our own CS veteran Scott believes it’s moving in the right way.
