Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Operation Phoenix Now Live
The CS:GO Blog provides the details: Now live, Operation Phoenix features the most popular maps (according to fan vote) from CS:GO’s previous two operations, Payback and Bravo. Those community-created maps are: Cache, Motel, Seaside, Downtown, Thunder, Ali, Favela, and Agency.
Purchase a $3 pass and you’ll have access to the maps in Competitive, Casual, and Deathmatch modes now through May 31. The pass also includes access to exclusive Phoenix Case drops, which are loaded with 13 fan-made weapon finishes.
It’s been an interesting journey for CS:GO since its launch in 2012. It wasn’t immediately embraced by Counter-Strike diehards, but various tweaks and updates over the past year-and-a-half have made it a lock among the top most popular games on Steam by player count.
