Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Will Have Its Own Open Beta
Shortly after the announcement of the 21 August release date, and the $14.99 price tag, Valve has announced that Global Offensive will see an open beta — sometime soon.
“For pre-orders we hope to open it up about a month before release so roughly July 21st but that is a rough date we will firm up as we get closer. As for an open beta, where everyone can get a chance to try CS:GO, sometime between the pre-orders and release.”
So, that means, if you’ve pre-ordered expect to play from 21 June. If you haven’t yet pre-ordered, you’ll probably have the chance to play a couple of weeks before.
Unless of course you’re in the closed beta.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will be available on all platforms — Xbox 360, PS3 and PC — on 21 August.
