If you're a fan of eSports, Valve, or the good ol' fashioned FPS, then you've probably heard of Counter-Strike. And if you've heard of Counter-Strike, there's about a 100 percent chance you've heard of Dust2, the most legendary map ever made for a FPS. Its so popular, thanks to its amazing design and versatile set-up, that fans have made a hobby of re-creating the map for as many games and on as many mediums as possible.
And now, it's Valve's turn.
Over on Twitter, they revealed that Dust2 would be making a comeback on CS:GO, with a much-needed update to bring it up to modern standards. They promised to update and refine the map, and unleash it on the CS:GO beta server at some point in the future.
That's literally all we know. I think most CS:GO fans will be more-or-less excited about the update part, seeing Dust2 rendered with modern graphics will no doubt be a treat, but the refine bit might make people a bit uncomfortable. Even a slight change to the map's iconic layout might ruin the balance that people have praised it for, and Valve is kind of out of practice when it comes to actually making games, right? Right?
Well, we'll have to see. There's no specific date listed for release, but it'll likely be soon, before the end of the year.
