There are more Maps coming to Counter-Strike 2’s Limited Test

Counter-Strike 2’s Limited Test launched with only one map, de_dust2, but fans can expect more maps to shuffle in soon. According to recent tweets by a known face in the CS community, Valve plans to add Mirage, Overpass, Nuke, and Ancient to Counter-Strike 2’s Limited Test. While the exact order of map releases is uncertain, Nuke might be the first one, as it was featured in one of the “new smoke videos” when the Limited Test launched.

As per the known Counter-Strike aficionado and dedicated follower, Aquarius:

Unless @CounterStrike devs change their minds, one (or more) of the following maps will be added to the Limited Test next: Mirage, Overpass, Nuke and Ancient.

Aquarius further confirmed that Vertigo is also being considered. The whole Counter-Strike community will likely discuss which map should be added first, but Valve will probably pick and choose the one that would benefit most from the new voxel-based volumetric smokes. However, the release dates for these new maps remain unknown.

In other news, with the excitement surrounding the new maps, players have expressed frustration with the invitation system for Counter-Strike 2’s Limited Test. Many urge Valve to increase player capacity and send out invites more frequently, allowing a bigger portion of the community to experience and provide feedback on the game. As anticipation builds for the addition of Mirage, Overpass, Nuke, and Ancient, Valve must address these concerns to ensure a positive reception for the new maps and the ongoing development of Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
