The Glove Case

Introducing the Glove Case, featuring 17 community-designed weapon finishes. Unlike previous cases, the possible Special Items in the Glove Case are 24 all-new gloves!

Steam Group Lobbies

Now you have more options when it comes to choosing your teammates. In addition to partying with friends, you can now view and join lobbies created by members of the Steam Groups you belong to. Steam Group Lobbies will be listed in the Steam Groups tab on the Main Menu.

Create a group that reflects your CS:GO interests, or join one of the thousands of Steam Groups representing various communities, countries, languages, and common interests.
