After some weeks without any bugfixes and news, VALVe has released a new update and some information about the open Beta.
The price and the release date, which already was published, has been confirmed once more. About a month before this date, the preorder-phase wiill start. The open Beta will be started between the release- and the pre order - date. Until now, it´s unknown how long the open beta will last.
At the current press release, VALVe described the update as a fundament and first step for upcoming game relevant changes. The changelog itself anyway, isn´t that spectacular. Beside many Interface-changes and a lowered Bot-difficulty, CS:GO Server Admins receive some new commands.
