Earlier this week, the CS:GO team announced two new maps; Cobblestone and Overpass, would also be making their way to the game via a new update. In today’s announcement, the studio clarified that both maps will be available to smaller groups before launching them for everyone.

“Because we want to make sure that Cobblestone and Overpass are as fun and balanced as possible, we’ll be collecting and executing on feedback from a smaller group before going wide with them,” they write. “For a limited time, both maps will be available for matchmaking in Operation Bravo only.”
