"A steam update is working its way out there right now, when that is all the way through we will roll out the beta."

"If you are in the forums betting on when we are going to expand the beta - I want to place my bet. I put $1000 on today."



---update----

looks like 14,000 keys for "top players" and 14,000 "gifts"
http://marlamin.com/cdr/view.php?type=sub for CS:GO

This is a world-wide beta though.


----update 2 ----

Today we are kicking off the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Beta. Players currently in the stress test will notice more maps, more weapons, and most importantly more players.

During this Beta, community feedback is really important to us. Counter-Strike has been around for 12 years and has been played by over 25 million players. We want to make sure to capture all of that experience and knowledge as we make Counter-Strike: Global Offensive the best version of Counter-Strike.

The most popular question we see posted, emailed, or tweeted is simple – how do I get access to the CS:GO Beta.

For us it is all about the community. Are you active in the community? Are you playing CS now? To reward the most active players, this week we are giving Beta access to the top 7000 active players around the world in CS:S and CS 1.6. We are also giving out additional keys to the top 500 players of CS:GO.

We also want to include the community at large so we are reaching out to prominent community sites and giving them keys to distribute to their communities over the coming weeks.

While we aren’t ready to give everyone access right now. We do have plans to get more people in the Beta. To help us select the next batch of players, we will be releasing a short survey in a few weeks that you can fill out and get on the list for a Beta key.

The first round of testing has already given us some great feedback. Today’s release has some changes we made based on that feedback. So keep it coming, CS:GO isn’t done.
Over the coming months we will begin to regularly share some of the data we collect from the game. Are maps balanced? Does the balance change based on player’s skill level? What strategies win the most often? What weapons perform the best on what maps? Sharing this data will help you understand our choices and changes. Let us know what data you would like to see.

So to all players currently playing Counter-Strike and to all of those who will be playing in the future,

Thanks,

The CS:GO Team

Sweet is it open beta? I've been wanting to give this game a try. The initial gameplay videos I saw were pretty disappointing compared to CS:S. (gameplay-wise not graphics)

Yeah hopefully the game does not disappoint.

Source Engine? It'll disappoint in some areas.

No one really cared about the graphics in Source, it was the gameplay that pissed people off. Which is why the community was so split between Source and 1.6. I used to agree 1.6 had better physics, but once I played Source for a couple seasons it was too hard to transition back.
