Share this:

Valve is bringing the holidays to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive! In a new blog post, the company announced the CS:GO Halloween event called the “Graveyard Shift.”

Players will be able to fight their way through a “midnight makeover” of Cobblestone! Not only that, but players will be able to torment players as a “ghost” in Casual, Demolition, and Flying Scoutsman game modes, too! Ghosts can spray graffiti, meet the other undeads, or just break objects using their special ghost knife.

There’s also the patch notes as well. Read the entire thing below.
