Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is moving to Source 2

Posted by , | Views: 19,776
A presentation was done about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive [Steam] coming to China, where they revealed Source 2 was coming along with a new UI.

This shot in particular is catching a lot of attention (source, with more images there):

This roughly translates to:
Quotesource 2 engine and Panorama UI
the next big action - this summer


This could mean CS GO will get Vulkan, like Dota 2 has. Exciting times, can't wait to see how it performs since I've been playing more of it lately. The Panorama UI is something Dota 2 gained with the big new refresh too, so it will be interesting to see the new layout in CS GO as well.

Some of this was expected, since Valve's recent reddit AMA where they mentioned the Panorama UI amongst other things.

Looks like this summer is going to be fun.

Thanks mphuZ!

YEEEEEEES, I was waiting for this!

My predictions: no more "stuttery feel" to the game and VULKAN!

You mean like the broken vulkan in dota 2?

It actually performs better for me than the OpenGL, but experience may vary between different hardware setups.

No, that's Chromium. Panorama is only used for the Big Picture UI in the Steam client. It is also used heavily in DOTA2. The store is literally embedded Chromium and is unrelated.
