Long live the king. Counter-Strike: Source is set to receive a major update in the near future that will add Steam achievements, a new "cinematic" death camera, new statistical screens, and a fresh "domination and revenge system."

According to the Steam page for the FPS, this update is live now for a select few. Valve opened up a beta for the billion-year old game this afternoon with the aforementioned content added -- which by the way, has come courtesy of a collaboration between Valve and Hidden Path Studios. But once the "limited time" beta is ended, Valve has promised that the update "will be deployed to all Counter-Strike: Source owners for free via Steam." NEAT.

Update Additions List

  • New lifetime player stats and summary screens
  • New match player stats and summary screens
  • New end of round display with MVP and interesting fact about a player
  • Updated scoreboard with new icons, visual style, MVP stars, and avatar pictures
  • New cinematic death camera
  • New domination and revenge system
  • Added avatar icons to voice chat, scoreboard, and end of round display
  • Incorporated many source engine updates
