Today we added 5,000 players to the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Beta. Our selection criteria this round was simple – we chose a group of players who represented the full range of survey responses. This way, everyone who filled out the survey had a chance to get access to the beta. The recipients will get the game added to their library and a key to gift to a friend.

The survey has been a great success so far, and we are seeing a wide range of players and skill levels. We will use the survey data to drive future selections as we continue to build the beta size in the coming months.

The best way to get into the beta is simple, fill out the survey (this will launch Steam).
