Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has just received a brand new update on the PC platform via Steam, which changes all sorts of things, from randomizing spawn points every round to adding a special Server Report function.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive came out last year and has since entertained a lot of fans of the long-running franchise by delivering a great multiplayer shooter experience.

Since its initial release in August, Valve and developer Hidden Path Entertainment, have released a lot of patches for the game, particularly for the PC version on Steam.

Now, a brand new update has just been released on the digital distribution service, which fixes all sorts of glitches, while adding new options, like a Server Report one, and new mechanics, like one that randomizes the spawn points every round.

Check out the full list of changes included in the new patch for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive below, via Steam:
