Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve's well known Tactical Shooter, has added cosmetic Glove Cases to the game according to the game's latest release notes. Details of the cases are further detailed in the "Brothers in Arms" blog post on the game's official website.

Paradoxically, the Glove Case will not only feature cosmetic glove skins. There will be 17 new community weapon skins in addition to the chance at getting one of 24 brand new styles of gloves as the Special item for your virtual operative. The gloves include designs ranging from practical digital camo to more stylish variants featuring checked patterns or cross hatching.

Of course, the update adds more to the game than some new cases for you to get your hands on. Steam Group Lobbies are a new feature that will allow players to exercise the "Play With Friends" option for anyone who is in a particular Steam Group regardless of whether or not they're on each other's friend lists. These Steam Group Lobbies are not automatically created, so you may not see them for particular Steam Groups you've joined if someone else hasn't created them already. You'll also be able to choose whether a lobby is Public or Private, restricting access to the people from within the group you personally invite in.

Another notable addition is the "Radicals" music box. Music boxes replace the default music in the game with different tracks. It features 7 new Stat-Trak music kits from "Radicals" artists such as Bear Tooth, Neck Deep, and Skog. As always, the update includes various bug fixes and map balance changes which we won't detail here - click through to the update notes to read up on the handful of other small changes made to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in this update.
