Community maps are back in CS2 after new update

There is good news for all community map lovers out there!

Last night Valve deployed another update to CS2. Here the biggest change is the possibility to now upload CS2 maps to the workshop.

- The Maps workshop is now open for business. Community map makers can start uploading their maps to the workshop, and community servers can host those maps. If you'd like to try some workshop maps offline, subscribe to them on the workshop and head to the Play menu. There are a bunch of other workshop tool updates today, along with a host of other fixes and adjustments to CS2. Check out the notes, play some matches, and keep that feedback coming, Valve writes in a news article on
