Counter Strike: Global Offensive developers have shown off what they’ve been working on lately and it’s a total user interface overhaul. Expected at the end of 2017 by many the latest beta update shows us what the game is expected to look like in the near future. By far my favorite addition was the timer when defusing a bomb so you can really see what point of a second you really had before defusing the bomb. Down below are comparisons between the old UI and the latest UI so you can check it out yourself.
New Menu VS Old Menu:
New Game VS Old Game
New Inspect Weapon VS Old Inspect Weapon
New Inventory VS Old Inventory
New Loadout VS Old Loadout
New Scoreboard VS Old Scoreboard
New Weapon Select VS Old Weapon Select
New Bomb Defuse
New Player Select
How to get access to the Beta
To access the new CSGO UI follow these easy instructions, It’s very similar to other games on steam:
- Open and log into Steam.
- Go to your Games Library.
- Right click on Counter Strike: Global Offensive and select “Properties”.
UPDATE 07/07/18: With the latest update add “-panorama” to the launch options here and you’ll be able to play with the new UI.
- Navigate to the BETAS tab and select the beta you wish to participate in. In this case it’s “panorma – Panorma UI Preview”.
If you wish to go back to the current build simply follow these instructions again but select NONE under the BETAS tab.
