Valve launches Counter-Strike: Global Offensive 'Operation Payback' with seven fan-made maps

As part of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's "Operation Payback," Valve will add seven top-voted community-made maps to its official dedicated servers from now until July 31, the developer announced today.

Players can get unlimited access to those maps on official servers by buying a pass that rewards those map makers with real money.

Operation Payback is the first in an ongoing initiative by Valve to acknowledge CS:GO's "popular and prolific" community map creators.

The pass, which comes with a one-of-a-kind challenge coin, is on offer for $2.99 for a limited time and will allow users to bring a friend into any Operation Payback map. The maps include Library, Motel, Seaside, Favela, Thunder, Downtown and Museum.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is available on Windows PC and Mac, as well as PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
