Valve returns to his old fans, seeming to give fans one more chance to ask: is it a Easter egg or is Valve hinting at the sequel? What seems to be the beginning of ARG is found on the map of Counter-Strike: Global offensiveThe new battle mode Danger zoneThis puzzle, both directly and indirectly, is related to it portal, Given the ARG's history of ARG and the fan's bent to speculation, it's all inevitable that rumors are already turning to potential portal continued.
This week I saw the release of long-rumors Danger zone battle mode Counter-Strike: Global offensiveThe card is not particularly large given that it is a 16-18 player royale battle, so it's no surprise that fans have found this Easter egg so fast. On one side of the map there is a four-room hotel on the upper floor. The third room is out and is out of the reach of the outside with the number 3 lying on the ground. That would be a ridiculous joke on its own, given that Valve is aware of the Valve Can not Count to Three, but moving from the second room to the third room leads to something much more convincing.
This third room has a dirty mattress on the ground and a desk with computer hardware. Players who wait in front of this desk for a few minutes will hear a secret message: some musical tones, a woman's code, then a different set of musical tones, with a woman who speaks incomprehensibly in the background throughout the duration of the message, This message, when decoded, reads: "It was a triumph. I make a note here: Great success.
Translate the encoded message to Counter-Strike: Global offensive& # 39; s Danger zone the map marks the end of what has so far been confirmed by fans as part of ARG. The response to the coded messages as a Glados quote and the blocking of three of the hotel blocks led fans to the idea that it was a show of potential portal continued. It is clear that this is an assumption, but the evidence must be recognized for what it is.
After this conclusion it seems that there is still something to be found within Danger zone map. It would not be ARG if it was only one Easter egg. Players now look over the assets of the map, exploring the darkest corners of the map, and while the next step of the puzzle remains unknown, there are still very clear hints for more. For example, a newsletter featuring an artistic part of a bunch of rats has been turned over to show a series of mysterious numbers.
In short, within the map of Counter-Strike& # 39; s Danger zone Easter egg mode, referring to the last three problems of Valva, led to a coded code containing a portal quote. Employees on the Internet are hard working to uncover more materials that may be ARG or not. The valve also led the ARG leading to Portal 2, which leads many people to suspect that Valve is doing the same for a new one portal game.
Valve is known to work on several games at the moment, including at least one single player title and several VR games. Whether these games see the light of the day
