The prolonged absence of one of the most iconic maps made players speculate that similar to Nuke and Inferno, Dust 2 may be revamped before making a comeback.

The classic Counter-Strike: Global Offensive map Dust has been given a facelift by Valve.

Despite the national attention, the email didn't generate a large number of complaints from students or faculty, Meisenzahl said.

Valve said that with the new version of CS:GO's Dust 2 "we wanted to honor its pure form while buffing away the jagged edges". Do you like what you see?

For instance, Valve has attempted to improve the flow of gameplay by removing cars from certain section of the map so players can manoeuvre more easily.

All of these changes and more sound pretty welcome, except for one. Valve has also adjust some of the map's geometry, removing or relocating objects that could obscure line of sight or interrupt movement.

Needless to say, the developer posted the tweet to fuel players' interest, and expectedly they started second-guessing what would be the changes Valve has prepared after the hiatus from the Active Duty map pool. The Leet Krew terrorists have been overhauled to match the map's visual upgrade. You can play the new version of Dust2 right now through CS:GO's beta branch (find out how to do that here).
