Valve has released a new update for CS:GO, officially bringing the game to mainland China along with a new weapon case.
Today our favorite game becomes truly global as we welcome a massive community of the most dedicated gamers in the world. To all of the new players joining us through Perfect World in China, welcome to CS:GO!
Low-latency Chinese servers, instant Prime matchmaking status, it’s all free when you sign up for a CS:GO account through Perfect World and complete a quick identity verification process (CS:GO licenses are also available for purchase for your Perfect World account). The Chinese CS:GO launch is handled by Perfect World, the video game publisher that also holds the rights to distribute Valve’s Dota 2 in mainland China. In China, CS:GO will be free to play, but players will be required to verify their identity through Perfect World. Once this process is completed, they will secure “Prime” status and will be able to play in low latency servers and use a match-making service exclusively for Prime users.
Perfect World players who join us in the first month will receive a free graffiti pattern and two free stickers, featuring art created by Perfect World. These stickers and graffiti will be available for purchase worldwide starting in October.
Today we’re also introducing the new Spectrum 2 Case, available to all CS:GO players worldwide. The case includes a series of community-designed weapon finishes, with a rare special item from the second generation of knives in Chroma finishes.
