Change is coming.

Lately we’ve been hinting at some of the big changes on the way for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

On Monday, we will release a major update to CS:GO. It will feature a revised matchmaking system for Classic Competitive mode, two maps (the classic de_vertigo and the fast-paced ar_monastery), and a ton of bug fixes based on community feedback.

de_Vertigo will be a nice addition to the map rotation.

Protect the VIP CS GO

“Protect the VIP” for CS:GO?

Anyone else remember the “Protect the VIP” maps in Counter-Strike?  Earlier today when browsing Twitter I noticed that CS:GO had a new Tweet, all it had was a link to a picture.

This is what I saw:

Could it be?  VIP maps for CS:GO are the next thing in the pipeline?   They used to be my favorite maps, but that was back in 1.5/1.6 days, I don’t even remember playing one in Counter-Strike Source.  Well hopefully we will get more information on in the next few days.  I know there is a new update for CS:GO next week maybe this will be included?
