CS:GO’s latest patch has introduced two new maps: Ruby, a bomb defusal map set in a scenic town in Portugal, and Workout which is a community-favourite hostage rescue map.

Valve confirms that Workout is already available in Competitive matchmaking, while Ruby will be added to the Competitive pool at a later date.

With two new maps making their way into CS:GO, this means players will have to say goodbye to two other community created maps: Abbey and Biome.

Elsewhere, more map changes are in store for the Competitive-minded. Vertigo has received a huge number of smaller updates, with a reworked T spawn and flattened bombsite zones to name just a couple from the exhaustive list.
