Some of the improvements implemented that have been well received by fans are:
– Slight improvements have been made to classic maps that essentially stay the same because they work perfectly.
– The ‘Source 2’ engine, used for the development and operation of the game, improves lighting thanks to its sophisticated physics-based rendering system, facilitating the generation of more realistic lights, brightness and reflections.
A great advance was implemented based on the online competitive mechanics, this being the increase in precision in the game’s response to the player’s keystrokes. ‘Valve’ will stop evaluating the movements and shots at specific time intervals or ‘ticks’, being changed by the measurement through updates of ‘subtics’, with which the server will better receive the data of the moments in which they are carried out concrete actions, such as shooting.

The ‘Source 2’ engine will allow the smoke from grenades to reach a more dynamic level, creating a 3D volumetric rendering that will maintain a consistent look from different vantage points. Likewise, the detail of the smoke, beyond the aesthetic, will react to stimuli such as lighting, the impact of projectiles or changes in density and size while it expands and dissipates.
‘Counter Strike 2’ has a release date scheduled for the summer of 2023, without contemplating a specific day so far. In addition, some privileged players have been able to test the game through a limited access trial since the day of the official announcement.
