An update has gone live for Valve’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The update should have no impact on the competitive aspect of the game in terms of professional play, however, those who play the match making may notice a change in maps.
Zoo and Abbey have made their way into Casual and Deathmatch while Austria and Subzero have been removed from matchmaking.
The map Biome was the target of some performance as well as design changes including the removal of some parts of the map altogether.
There were also some slight adjustments made to the sound.
