Last week we gave you a walkthrough of our decision-making process while developing an update of the classic map de_mirage. One thing we didn’t give you, though, was the actual map.
Today, the wait is over: Mirage is here! Jump into an official Casual, Competitive, or Deathmatch server and check it out.
Also, today’s update includes a new tool to help you practice throwing flash and smoke grenades in all of our maps. While you’re on a private server enter “sv_grenade_trajectory 1” in the console, and you’ll get to see the visual arc that grenades follow across the map.
Lastly, Operation Payback passes are on sale for just $0.99 from now until Monday. Get access to a diverse set of community maps, and match up with the rest of the CS:GO community through official Valve matchmaking servers. Now is the perfect time to play some great maps while supporting the CS:GO community.
We hope you enjoy the de_mirage update and Payback sale, and get some practice time in with those grenade lobs. As always, your feedback is incredibly important to us; be sure to let us know what you think of everything!
