CS: GO Gets Retro Dust 2 and Chicken Capsule for 20 Year Celebration

The original Counter-Strike first went into beta on 19 June 1999 and yes, I suddenly feel very old this morning, as I am sure many others do too. It has been a very long journey from the beta, through multiple versions of CS until 2012 when CS: GO finally released. To celebrate 20 years of Counter-Strike, Valve has released a new update in the early hours of the morning, featuring a retro Dust 2 and, wait for it, a chicken capsule.
