Valve completely rebuilds 15-year-old Counter-Strike map
One of the classic bomb defusal maps from the early days of Counter-Strike received an official, high-end polish and upgrade for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
Valve rebuilt the map from the ground up in order to "improve both the visual appearance and competitive gameplay balance of this iconic location," according to the Counter-Strike blog.
"Our primary goals were to improve the gameplay balance of the map while simultaneously upgrading the overall visual experience," according to the blog post. "This meant making more intuitive layout changes, then re-interpreting large and small-scale environment elements to improve judgement of space and distance."
The new Train is now available in competitive matchmaking and other game modes as a part of the "Operation Vanguard" map group.
