For those of you CS-heads planning on picking up the pre-order at a 10% discount (a special offer available until launch on the 21st August), you will also get to play the beta starting on the 14th. I’m going to go right ahead and say that the beta is most likely near completion, so in essence, you’re getting the full game one whole week before the “official” launch date. And a wee bit cheaper than the full game would be. Who wouldn’t like that?
Well played yet again, Valve. Get it here.
PS. What’s even cooler is that for $5 more, you can get the entire Counter-Strike franchise incl. CS, CS: Condition Zero, CS: Source, and of course, the new ‘un, CS: GO.
