CS:GO holiday update

Post thumbnail

The new version of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has got the HRTF function, updated Nuke and made some changes to the interface, and also offers players give their friends and teammates presents.


  • Deployed Holiday Cheer for your festive fragging season. You can spread the Holiday Cheer! Gifts are now available for a limited time.
  • Added new audio option that enables Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF) processing on in-game sounds. The goal is to vastly improve 360 degree vertical and horizontal sound positioning. The function is turned on by default, for an optimal experience with HRTF, we recommend turning off any external 5.1 or 7.1 surround audio driver options.
  • Third-person weapon angles now visibly match first-person weapon recoil.
  • In the friends panel “Steam Groups” have been renamed to “Public Lobbies”.
  • The “Public Lobbies” tab now shows nearby public lobbies and suggested steam group lobbies in addition to your steam group lobbies. Steam Group lobbies now display the country associated with the majority of lobby members.
  • Fixed 5 Year Veteran Coin to be granted to accounts that cancelled and later reactivated their old Counter-Strike license after they restart their CS:GO client.
