Valve’s announcement of Counter-Strike 2’s upcoming release in 2023 has generated significant anticipation among gamers. The sequel aims to revitalise the tactical squad shooter genre with innovative features. To provide a glimpse into the game’s potential, Valve has launched a limited beta version of the game, although gaining access requires meeting specific criteria.

The beta selection process considers factors like recent playtime on Valve’s servers, trust factor, and Steam account standing. This ensures that dedicated players can participate and provide valuable feedback during the testing phase.

Currently, the beta is limited to Deathmatch and Unranked Competitive matchmaking on the iconic Dust 2 map. XP earned during the beta carries over to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), adding progression incentives for players.

Valve plans to stress test the servers and gradually expand the beta player base as testing progresses. Their focus is on addressing major issues to deliver a polished game upon the official release later this summer, but rumour has it that the tweet 3kliksphilip posted might be the date that CS2 released. True or not, you guys figure out.
