Valve has released a new update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The latest update will bring several changes to the latest map to enter the competitive pool, Vertigo. Also included was a change of maps as Abbey and Biome were removed and replaced by CS:GO Ruby and Workout.

The development team has been getting tons of feedback regarding the map that was thrown into the mix last month and have begun to incorporate some of it into the game.

The bombsites were targeted pretty heavily with them being brought down in size as well as flattened. Also adjusted was the terrorist spawn zone and several visibility issues were addressed.

You can read the full patch notes below.
