Get to your stations, this is not a drill, I REPEAT, this is not a drill. Maximum alert, put away the fridge gifs, we have an actual Operation on our hands here!

Santa still exists, and his name is Gabe Newell. Counter-Strike is getting it's 10th Operation! And we can tell you right now, from what we've seen so far, this is like ten Christmases in one. Here's a rundown of some of this Operation's new features:

  • A new and improved statistics page
  • A retakes game mode
  • Operation missions
  • New agents
  • Three new Defusal maps
  • A new Danger Zone map
  • A new chat command wheel
  • A new case
  • New stickers and patches
  • A new collection

and the list just goes on and on and on...

But most importantly: A premium matchmaking service with a map veto.

What kind of Willy Wonka world have we entered.

The operation seems to be centered around a jungle theme, with Valve's own new map, Ancient, at its forefront. The Operation Pass can already be purchased, and your 2.2GB update should already be queued when you read this. We don't say this often, but pog.
