The Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test is now live for select players. Here’s how big the download size is for this beta.
Valve made a surprise announcement on March 22, revealing that Counter-Strike 2 was in development and scheduled for release this summer. The official Twitter account for Counter-Strike described the upcoming game as being “an overhaul to every system, every piece of content, and every part of the C-S experience.”
As part of the reveal, Valve announced that a Limited Test would be taking place, which went live on the same day as the announcement. The Limited Test is only available for select players, who will be granted access based on a number of factors including Counter-Strike playtime and account standing. Valve has also revealed that more players will be added to the Limited Test over time, so if you’re not able to play yet keep checking back for updates.
If you’re one of the lucky few who has been granted access to the Limited Test, you might be wondering just how much space the beta will occupy on your system. Here’s how big the Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test download size is.
How big is the Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test download size?
