Valve launches Operation Payback for CS: GO

Community map makers for the shooter can earn some money from Valve

Posted on

Valve has announced the launch of Operation Payback, the first of an ongoing series of limited-time updates aimed at giving a financial reward to some of CS:GO's most popular and prolific mapmakers.

Available from now until July 31st, 2013, Operation Payback is a collection of seven top-voted Counter-Strike: Global Offensive community maps hosted on official servers and available to play with the purchase of a pass. Buying a pass also lets players bring their friends along to any Operation Payback match. Contributors will also get to show off their support with a one-of-a-kind challenge coin, upgradable by playing and viewable wherever their avatars are shown. Players can buy a pass for $5.99, although it is currently on sale for $2.99.

It is assumed that some of this income will then be sent to the map creators, though Valve has not detailed exactly how the profits will be split.

CS:GO is the latest version of the team-based multiplayer Counter-Strike franchise. It is available for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
