Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's latest update, Operation Breakout, has brought six highly rated community-created maps to the competitive shooter, along with the introduction of mission drops, developer Valve announced late last night.
The six new maps — BlackGold, Castle, Insertion, Mist, Overgrown and Rush — are available in casual, deathmatch and competitive modes in official matchmaking to everybody from now until October 2nd. CS: GO players can also purchase the Operation Breakout All-Access Pass for $5.99, which will give players exclusive access to the Operation Breakout weapon case. This case features a number of community designs, including the brand new Butterfly Knife design.
As usual, buyers will receive a challenge coin for the operation. In addition, Operation Breakout introduces missions, which provide rewards for completing certain tasks like getting a set amount of kills with a certain gun and winning a particular match type. The rewards consist of weapon finishes from three new groups: the Baggage Collection, which comes from "around the world"; the Cobblestone Collection, which is inspired by the Cobblestone map; and the Overpass Collection, which is inspired by the Overpass map.
You’ll also be able to keep track of your accomplishments with the Operation Breakout Journal. The Journal will separately track key stats for your official competitive matches on all Operation Breakout maps, as well as for all Active Duty maps. Find out more through the official splash page.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is available on Mac and Windows PC through Steam for $14.99.
