Counter-Strike: GO's Operation Breakout breaks out new maps for everyone


3:30 PM on 07.02.2014



Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players just got a few new playgrounds to get offensive on, courtesy of the players themselves. As part of CS:GO's Operation Breakout initiative, six user-created maps have been promoted to cycle in official matchmaking for three months. The maps in question are: Castle, Insertion, Mist, Overgrown, Rush, and Blackgold.

While the maps are free for CS:GO players, those that are so inclined can break out their wallets to pay for a bit more. With the Operation Breakout All Access Pass, players get a challenge coin that grants mission drops. Completing missions upgrades the coin and earns weapon finishes from three new collections. All that gets memorialized in a journal that tells the tale of how you spent the Summer of Breakout.
