Rumor has it:
- CS:GO Stash has put up images of the weapons of the Glove Case
- If you’d like to view the item schema update for yourself, here it is
- If you’re unsure about music kit licensing (say for streaming/posting a video to YouTube), music kits distributed through CS:GO fall under the terms of the Steam Subscriber Agreement which is viewable at http://store.steampowered.com/subscriber_agreement/
- Here’s some more news on the Perfect World front involving CS:GO’s release inside of mainland China within a little while:
- Did you know that Dota 2 has a special launcher which is pretty much a 1-app miniaturized version of Steam? It seems that based on these GC protobufs, CS:GO will use a similar model as well for handling getting in the game
- You’re likely gonna be locked in to using one currency, if you use something else this error message will appear asking you to contact “support”, which is Perfect World’s own support and not Steam Support
- Those that are under 18 are subject to an Anti-Addiction System which is also found in the Perfect World version of Dota 2 as well
- There’s also some modified achievement images to fit in with the “no blood, no skulls” theme going on, mostly for Arms Race achievements for now
- Do you happen to be fluent (or near-fluent) in another non-English language? If so, consider signing up for the Steam Translation Server to help translate the close to 200 strings added in this update
