Counter-Strike: Global Offensive now supports Steam Workshop content in a new patch released today. As you browse the workshop in your game, you can click ‘Subscribe’ on any map you like the look of to automatically download it, and keep it automatically up to date as the map’s creator tweaks and balances it.
Furthermore, maps can now be created with game mods built directly in — so if a map’s creator wants to set it as a scoutzknivez or aim map, they can do that natively without any extra fiddling on your part. The Community server browser will continue as before, but Valve is hoping that players will move to the Workshop as it offers a superior experience.
Valve are offering an FAQ for those of you confused by the new system/looking for links on how to make your own maps and content, so go check it out if you need clarity! Meanwhile, the game is now on sale for just $7.50 over the weekend to celebrate. Get cracking!
