New CSGO Update Adds Christmas Cheer

Comment

Holidays

  • Deployed Holiday Cheer for your festive fragging season.
  • You can spread the Holiday Cheer! Gifts are now available for a limited time.

Sound

  • 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.
  • By default, Speaker Configuration in Audio Settings has been set to “Headphones with HRTF.” Selecting an alternative speaker configuration will disable HRTF.
  • NOTE: For an optimal experience with HRTF, we recommend turning off any external 5.1 or 7.1 surround audio driver options.

Public Lobbies

  • 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.
  • Lobbies now support broadcasting to nearby players. Players can use this setting for friend or steam group lobbies.
  • Steam Group lobbies now display the country associated with the majority of lobby members.

Gameplay

  • Third-person weapon angles now visibly match first-person weapon recoil.

MISC

  • 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.

  • Bot names can now be localized in game language.
  • Added experimental plugin support for managing network channel encryption keys on community servers.
