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.
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.
“A bomb defusal map set in a Greenhouse complex called Season Bio-Research Inc. The NSA has classified supply stashes in the area that the Counter-Terrorists must defend.”
Originally created by Ted McIlwain to be used in CPL, CEVO, and CAL tournaments for competitive play in Counter-Strike: Source. Before Operation Vanguard, it was updated by the original author for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and remains a popular tournament map. The Terrorists are the Balkans while the Counter-Terrorists are the SWAT team.
Season Corporation, a Japanese bio-research facility, has its white walls painted red by a Phoenix demolition attack.
- Prior to being included in Operation Vanguard, Season's gaming league origins and balanced mechanics have made it a popular choice in professional tournaments going as far back as Counter-Strike: Source.
