Key Change

Starting today, CS:GO container keys purchased in-game can no longer leave the purchasing account. That is, they cannot be sold on the Steam Community Market or traded. Pre-existing CS:GO container keys are unaffected–those keys can still be sold on the Steam Community Market and traded.

Why make this change? In the past, most key trades we observed were between legitimate customers. However, worldwide fraud networks have recently shifted to using CS:GO keys to liquidate their gains. At this point, nearly all key purchases that end up being traded or sold on the marketplace are believed to be fraud-sourced. As a result we have decided that newly purchased keys will not be tradeable or marketable.

For the vast majority of CS:GO users who buy keys to open containers, nothing changes; keys can still be purchased to open containers in their inventory. They simply can no longer be traded or transacted on the Steam Community Market.

Unfortunately this change will impact some legitimate users, but combating fraud is something we continue to prioritize across Steam and our products.

CS:GO is now FREE TO PLAY

So there’s never been a better time to bring in your friends.

All players who played CS:GO before today’s update will receive a commemorative Loyalty Badge they can display on their profile. You were there from the beginning, so show it off! Additionally, all existing CS:GO players have had their accounts upgraded to Prime Status.

As before, Prime Status matches you with other Prime Status players. Additionally, your Prime Status will give you access to the new Souvenir MP5-SD | Lab Rats (available by earning XP while playing Danger Zone matches) and the all new Danger Zone Case.

Danger Zone Case

The Danger Zone Case features 17 community-designed weapon finishes, and the Horizon knives as rare special items. Click here for more details.

A new game mode, a new case, and CS:GO is free. What are you waiting for? GO! GO! GO!

그림자 놀이

오늘의 업데이트는 “그림자 상자”입니다. 그림자 상자는 커뮤니티가 디자인한 16가지 무기가 있으며 이번에 새로 나온 그림자 단검이 포함되어 있을 수도 있습니다!

무료 주말이 시작되었습니다!

CS:GO를 소개해보고 싶으셨나요? 태평양 표준시 기준 일요일 오후 1시까지 무료로 즐길 수 있습니다! 또한, CS:GO와 보상 작전 참가권이 월요일까지 절반 가격인 만큼, 이보다 친구들을 게임에 게임에 초대하기 좋은 기회는 흔치 않을 겁니다.

이 게임을 처음 접하셨나요? CS:GO는 수많은 게임 모드와 캐릭터, 맵과 무기 등등이 존재합니다. 너무 복잡하다고 생각하시나요? 어떻게 시작해야 하는지 알려드리죠.

먼저 카운터 스트라이크 게임을 해본 적이 없으셨다면, 훈련 코스에서 게임이 어떻게 진행되는지 알아볼 수 있습니다. 참고로 고수들은 훈련 코스의 마지막에 있는 장소에서 기록을 세우려고도 한답니다.

실력이 충분한지 확인해보고 싶으신가요? 군비 경쟁이나 데스매치 모드에서 모든 무기를 부담 없이 연습해볼 수 있습니다.

이제 무기도 익숙해졌다면, 그 다음은 팀원 간 협동을 다질 시간이군요! 폭파 모드에 들어가서 중앙의 폭파 지역을 두고 치열한 싸움을 벌일 수도 있고, 카운터 스트라이크의 전통 모드를 즐기고 싶으시다면 고전 캐주얼에 들어가셔서 자신의 전략을 시험해볼 수 있습니다.

제대로 된 경쟁을 원하시나요? 고전 경쟁 매치 메이킹이 있습니다. 16선승제로써, 자신과 실력이 비슷한 5명이 팀이 되어 상대 팀과 대결하게 됩니다. 매치 메이킹에서 10번 승리하면 자신의 실력 등급을 배정받게 되며, 고전 경쟁은 정말로 오래 걸리니 매치에 참가하기 전에 충분한 시간이 있는지 꼭 확인하세요!

무료 주말과 함께 즐겁게 지내기 바라며, 월요일에 할인이 끝나므로 그 전에 게임과 보상 작전 참가권을 구매하는 걸 잊지 마세요!
