Season (de_season) is a community created map featured heavily in professional competitive play since its creation for Counter-Strike: Source. It has since been included as part of Operation Vanguard in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

On the October 13, 2016 Update, the map was removed from the game files, making Season inaccessible via console.


Operation Vanguard

This map is created by ted. It is the map's second visual update and overhaul, made with the help of FMPONE. It was included in Operation Vanguard.

The conflict is occurring within a bio-research facility in Tokyo, Japan. Mount Fuji is visible in the distance in the skybox. The map features clean aesthetics with a significant usage of white and other simple, bright whole colors.

The Counter-Terrorist force is the SAS and the Terrorist force is the Phoenix Connexion.
