A group of fans brought the core elements of CS:GO to Source 2 in just a few months. How the project looks like in action can be seen thanks to the extensive gameplay.
A group of fans ported Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to the Source 2 engine.
- The developers have released a video with the first gameplay of the project.
- Converting the basic elements of CS:GO to Source 2 took the authors six months.
- The project is based on s&box, the upcoming game from Facepunch, conceived as a successor to Garry’s Mod. The header will use Source 2.
- It is currently unknown when we will be able to play this fan project.
Looking at the video, you might be surprised by the lack of big changes in the visual part. However, the project is not about that. Source 2 is just a more modern and stable engine that also has fewer bugs. Therefore, the transfer of CS:GO to this technology will improve the game and facilitate its further development.
The developers make it for fun, so don’t expect it to replace Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. However, the fact that a group of fans went so far in porting CS:GO to Source 2 casts a negative light on Valve’s pace, as can be seen from the YouTube comments below the video:
“It’s worth clarifying that we have known for a long time that Valve is working on a version of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive running on Source 2, but so far the company has not officially announced anything about it, given the history of this developer, it is quite possible that this project will have to wait quite a long time. Until recently, it seemed that this could happen as early as this month, but according to the latest data, the project suffered another delay.”
