Halloween has arrived in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and a spooky version of Cobblestone has gone live to celebrate that fact.

Cobblestone is a fan-favorite map but hasn’t been seen much since it was replaced in the Active Duty map pool by Dust II back in April of 2017.

Well now it’s back (if only for a limited time) with a totally revamped look in celebration of Halloween. Changes include a spooky night time setting, the removal of the Danger connect at A long and a new window in Underpass.

The Halloween theme doesn’t begin and end with Cobblestone, though. In Casual, Demolition and Flying Scotsman modes, players are now be able to haunt their opponents after dying as ‘Ghosts’. These Ghosts will be able to spray graffiti, interact with props and even turn chickens into zombie chickens!
