Valve has just released a festive themed update for the popular multiplayer first person shooter Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
As well as bringing in two new maps to play for both offline play and on community servers, Cobblestone and Overpass, Christmas and holiday season additions have been made. In the spirit of giving gamers can now purchase three gift options. A Gift Package will enable a player to gift a random item to a random player in the same match. Pallet of Presents gifts up to nine people in the same match a random item and Audience Participation Parcel gives up to 25 people watching a match a random item. This should help spread the holiday gifting cheer.
The droppable eSports cases have been replaced with eSports Winter cases. A community designed Winter Offensive Case has also been added to the title. To top it all off along with a range of bug fixes Valve has managed to add holiday cheer to Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
