Counter-strike gives players a retro map for its 20th birthday ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

This year Counter-Strike turns 20 and to celebrate, Valve has created a retro version of the Dust II map for players to enjoy. You can find it in the Dust II map group. 

20 years ago, Minh ‘Gooseman’ Le and Jess Cliffe released early tests of a Half-Life mod. Valve purchased the IP and had them join the company to create what has now become one of the greatest fps ever made. 

The series went on to release four installments with the last being 2012's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. This month alone there are over 8 big tournaments being held in CS:GO, and the rest of the year is filled with many more. The prize money from many of them is in the hundreds of thousands and all over the world, gamers play casually as well. 

In December 2018, CS:GO went free-to-play. Yet, Valve is still cashing in from the sale of in-game cosmetics like weapon skins. From all indications, CS:GO hasn't even begun to lose steam yet.
