CS:GO was released on August 21, 2012, and is currently one of the most popular competitive first-person shooter games in the world. In this guide, we will answer the question that many players might have: is CS:GO on Xbox?
The shooter game is available for purchase on Steam, and its most recent version, CS:GO Danger Zone, is available on the Windows platform.
But that’s not all we have to look at. So, let’s find out what is going on with CS:GO on Xbox.
Can you Play CS:GO on Xbox?
Currently, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) is not available on the Xbox platform. The game is available on Windows, Mac OS X, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 platforms. Despite its popularity, the game has not been released on the Xbox platform.
However, it is possible to play the online competitive shooter across gaming consoles. It is not a simple process like downloading the game through a website or a client. In order to play CS:GO on these devices, you need to follow certain steps, which we can show you.
First, some history. CS:GO was initially developed by Valve to port Counter-Strike: Source over to video game consoles like PS3 and Xbox 360. This was followed by Valve releasing a new version of Counter-Strike for both PC and consoles, which is now known as CS:GO. While the PC version has become one of the best online competitive shooters in the world and a popular esports title, its console version has been forgotten. This is probably why CS:GO won’t have an Xbox version anytime soon.
With that out of the way, let’s see how to play CS:GO on Xbox.
To play Counter-Strike:GO on an Xbox One console, you need to first buy the game from the Xbox 360 store. Then, open the Xbox Guide on your Xbox One console and select the ‘My Games and Apps’ icon. Scroll down to ‘Ready To Install’, highlight it, and press ‘X’ to find Counter-Strike:GO. Finally, press ‘X’ one more time to install the game.
