How to Download & Play Counter-Strike 2 Limited Beta Test
Valve has sent invitations to a selected number of players for the Counter-Strike 2 Limited Beta Test based on various factors like recent playtime on Valve official servers, trust factor, Steam account standing, and more.
If you are selected, then you will receive a notification in the main menu of CS:GO, and to enter the Limited Test, you will have to select the "ENROLL" option, and the download will begin. Once the download is completed, you will have to launch CS:GO and select the "Limited Test" option to play the Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test.

Initially, the Counter-Strike 2 Limited Test will offer Deathmatch and Unranked Competitive matchmaking on Dust2 only; however, future limited test releases will add other game modes, maps, and features as well.
