Well you can’t say Valve only cares about Team Fortress 2. Train (or de_train), a classic map from Counter-Strike 1.6 times, just got a facelift and a redesigned layout for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

At first the new design with all the trains and cargo containers might look complicated for a fast-paced competitive map, but the old design was actually even more complex. That’s one of the reasons for the new look:

We’ve rebuilt the map from the ground up in order to improve both the visual appearance and competitive gameplay balance of this iconic location.

Our primary goals were to improve the gameplay balance of the map while simultaneously upgrading the overall visual experience. This meant making more intuitive layout changes, then re-interpreting large and small-scale environment elements to improve judgement of space and distance.

Now we all have to do is find Half-Life 3 clues in it.
