Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gets a free offline version
Counter-Strike franchise is one of Valve's most successful ventures, with the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or CS: GO always remaining a paid title. But now, Valve has released a free offline version of the game. Players can fight against bots as well as watch professional CS: GO matches. This would be a trial-run for players who prefer playing a game for sometime before purchasing it.
What kind of access does the offline mode provide?
CS: GO will allow players to fight bots in solo missions. All of this will be completely offline. However, they can access the maps in-game as well as the maps added by the community. This provides players with an excellent opportunity to train against bots before facing skilled international players. Further, they can see how their systems run the game before purchasing it.
The joys of spectating
Besides the offline gameplay, the other important addition is GOTV. This allows players to spectate multiplayer matches in major leagues. Watching is an excellent way to catch on to game styles and pick up some tricks and tips. The timing of the release is fantastic since newcomers can tune into FACEIT London Major, an extremely prestigious CS: GO competition with a million-dollar prize pool.
Tune into world class gameplay that will inspire you
The best way to get inspired is to watch excellent gamers. Tune into the FACEIT London Major, from September 5, to see the best of 24 international teams fight out over 3 weeks for a grand prize pool of a million dollars.
