Counter Strike: Global Offensive SDK

Some developers get it, some use excuses and some should just move on and get out of the PC game business all together (I won't mention IW's name -oops)

Valve is one of those developers who knows their customers. They also have a title that is so old, I forgot when it was released but it's still the top played FPS shooter out there on the PC and kicks most of the console's FPS games ass after all these years.

With the upcoming release of the next Counter Strike, Global Offensive, Valve has announced the SDK for the game will be released ~3 months after the game hits digital distribution and the store shelves.

Funny how a small self owned developers like, Valve, Plastic Parana and a few other indie studios can do this when all the big named studio's can't.

Seems it's already on steam and possibly being tested

Some people get that letting the community grow and extend will net more revenue than milking them for lame DLC - but you have to look longer than a 18 month sales horizon to see it.

This week besides the update listed below, we have an update that is not so visible.

We released the first beta version of the CS:GO SDK.
With this release, the community will be able to start working on new CS:GO maps. We look forward to new maps, old classics updated, competitive versions of maps, and even more surf maps!

The beta is currently very limited as we work through the bugs. We will make more keys available as we get more feedback and fixes out there.

Today’s update contains the SDK. This means if you have the Beta, you now have access to the SDK. It is available as a separate download from the tools tabs in steam. If you are going to map, we suggest joining the CSGO_SDK mailing list for news, information, and peer support.

We are releasing the SDK so people can get a head start on their mapping. Later we will include Steam Workshop integration so creators can easily share their maps and players can view, rate, and download content.
This update also includes Nuke and Inferno SE maps. These are stripped down competitive maps designed for league play. SE maps are not available directly through match-making but are available for dedicated servers and peer-servers.

If you are looking for something a little more casual, we have also added the ability to search for casual/social games. The rules there are a bit more relaxed and the rounds are quicker. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
Complete release notes are available here.
