If you’re looking forward to getting your hands on Valve’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), you might recall that the game will be launched on the 21st of August 2012. Just how much will you have to pay for the privilege of playing this game? According to Valve, you can expect to fork out $14.99 for it. Valve has also announced that they are planning to start allowing customers to pre-order the game a good one month before its release, so if you can’t wait to play the game and assuming that all goes according to plan, the 21st of July will be a date you’ll want to mark down on your calendar.
Valve has revealed that they are planning for an open beta of the game in which everyone will be able to try their hands at CS:GO, and this is expected to take place between the pre-order date and the game’s actual release. Speaking of beta, CS:GO has recently been updated with a bunch of bug fixes and is expected to undergo major updates over the next few weeks. In the meantime if you’re curious as to what the recent set of updates has brought to the table, head on over here for the changelog.
