Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - Perfect World is a special version of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive released on 18 April 2017 for the Chinese market via publisher Perfect World.[1]

Overview

Beta testing commenced on April 18, 2017. Unlike the Steam version, the Perfect World launcher is required to be downloaded for playing. The game is currently available for free. Registration at http://www.csgo.com.cn/ is required for logging into the Perfect World launcher.

Differences

Maps

  • On Cache, on bombsite A and "B long", the hammer and sickle symbol is censored, presumably to avoid conflict with the Chinese Communist Party.
  • On Train, on bombsite B, the hammer and sickle symbol is censored for the same reason as Cache above.
  • On Italy, the flag of Italy is removed.
  • On Weapons Course, the whiteboard with markers for times, "EXIT" and "START" on the last stage of training is translated into Chinese.
  • On Dust and Dust2, all Arabic references were removed from posters, signs and boxes, and all graffiti is altered.
  • Monastery is not playable possibly due to the map taking place in Tibet.

Items

  • To comply with China's censorship laws, any appearance of skulls and blood must be either replaced or toned down. (e.g. skulls replaced with gas masks)
