A YouTube user, going by the name of Rechyyy has been kind enough to illustrate the visual changes Counter-Strike has gone through over the years. He uses de_dust2 as a reference map to showcase the visual upgrades Counter-Strike has received with every iteration all the way up to the unreleased Counter-Strike Global Offensive.
Even if CS: GO doesn’t bring a whole lot gameplay changes to the table, the visual overhaul is evident. CS: GO is expected to release sometime next year, while the multiplayer beta has already gone live nearly a week ago. Thanks to Kotaku for the heads up.
