We’re standing only a few days away from the heavily anticipated tenth anniversary of Valve’s iconic competitive shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and fans of the title throughout the globe are eagerly looking forward to seeing what the company has planned to celebrate the occasion.
While the developers behind the title haven’t revealed what they have in store for the players as of yet, the internet is running wild with all sorts of speculations surfacing regarding the tenth anniversary of CSGO.
Let’s take a look at what fans can expect from the tenth anniversary of the game.
CSGO 10th Anniversary: Will Valve Celebrate It?
The speculations involving the tenth CSGO anniversary had been going on for almost a year, but Warowl’s accidental leaks of the Source 2 engine recently reignited the flames.
During a livestream, the CSGO content creator accidentally revealed that the Source 2 engine upgrade might arrive to the shooter in August 2022, which coincides with the tenth anniversary of CSGO.
This has led fans to believe that the CSGO tenth anniversary update might bring with it the new engine that has players waiting for the past few years.
Sticker collectors are also keeping their eyes peeled for the upcoming CSGO10 sticker collection that’s set to arrive alongside the tenth anniversary of the game.
For the uninitiated, Valve has announced a sticker contest for artists looking to get their stickers in the game. While the winners of the contest haven’t been revealed yet, some entries have managed to gain some serious traction on social media forums.
Many fans would consider the tenth anniversary of CSGO to be incomplete without a nostalgia trip, but it seems that Valve has got you covered. According to recent leaks, the devs have already started testing out the revamped version of the map ‘de_tuscan’.
The exact release date of Tuscan isn’t certain, but there’s a decent chance that the new map will land alongside the tenth-anniversary update of CSGO.
These were some of the major changes that fans can expect to see in the upcoming CSGO update. The update is likely to hit the official servers on August 21, 2022, the same date that marks the ten years since the title’s release on August 21, 2012.
