CS:GO update adds new map Canals and Spectrum case

The Canals map in CS:GO is based on real-world environments with each area having its own architectural style and gameplay. Part of it, the CT area, is wide open while the T-controlled territory is a “crescent of smaller spaces” with multiple approaches to each bomb site.

These bombsites will require “different tactics and weapon choices” for each team, and those who use the canal which runs below site B will be able to “stealthily” approach the CT-controlled area and site A. T

Along with the new map comes the Spectrum Case, which contains 17 community-designed weapon skins and a rare, special item: a second generation of knives in Chroma finishes.

Finally, players can expect a visual upgrade to the Phoenix Terrorist player model. Adjustments focused on “preserving character legibility” and improving visual fidelity.

**** update really true


This isnt as good of a update as i had hoped


After seeing a video of the map, I'm not super happy with the design. Although the map does have some positives, it also has some downsides. The bombsites are very open and it's just weird.


TTGn00bs This game really died to me.

When games get like that you just have to go try hard on them.


I always loved this game. Enjoy the graphics.


This game really died to me.


We'll surprised more maps are coming


Graphics look average. They need more maps like zoo!


The map is pretty terrible too.


Nice to see them adding more maps into the game and going on community designed stuff. Will need to get this game on steam at some point.
