Upgraded Italy has arrived in CS2
Aug 16, 2023
A reimagined Italy has arrived in Counter-Strike 2.
The Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test just received a new update, which included the removal of Anubis and Ancient in favor of Italy. The map is now available for Deathmatch and casual game modes.
The map looks brand new with vibrant lighting and detailed textures. But Italy’s changes are more than just cosmetic. Developers also added two new connector areas.
CS2 Italy map upgrade
Engineer and CS2 leaker ThourCS took to Twitter to show a detailed before-and-after look at Italy. In the video, you can see that the map is a lot more vibrant with a lot more natural lighting. The color is warmer instead of shady and cool.
The details added to the various outdoor vendors are also a major upgrade. The buildings are also full of life and have a lot more similarities to the old school buildings in Italy that tourists find so charming.
