Cache update released on Steam Workshop

The new version of Cache is now available to the public on the Steam Workshop.

The long-awaited update to Cache was unveiled at ESL One New York, with pro players taking part in a showmatch on the updated version of the established map. Now, the public will also be able to play the new Cache, as it is available for download on the Steam workshop.

Cache is back, with a new look

In our interview with the map's creators, Sal "Volcano" Garozzo and Shawn "FMPONE" Snelling, the minds behind Cache explained that the update aimed to keep many of the original features, but "give players more creative ways to use their tools".

The map has not been added to the CS:GO client yet, which means it can only be played on community servers or places such as FACEIT Hubs.

That is literally the point of it, it's just a facelift, just like how they barely changed dust 2 when they reworked it. It's already an amazing map and doesn't need a major gameplay overhaul

Thats the only Thing i could Imagine being a reason. Because the angles on the new one are way better for example. Its Just way more smooth

It's not nostalgia man, trust. I guess I just knew how to work the older angles better. I generally just performed better on old dust 2, even today if I play on community 5v5 servers on old dust 2 I would be better off (not saying a community 5v5 is equivalent to a competitive match tho)
2019-10-10 17:47

I don't like it too, but it is undeniably the most iconic esports map ever and if you think it is objectively bad because you hate it, you are wrong. Office is objectively bad map, vut some people like it.

nah, Office is straight up bad/cheaters paradise. A map that forces the CT to throw a smoke with .2 seconds in the round just to cross to the other side is just plain and simply bad.

2019-10-10 16:00

Idk about you guys, but i am extremely disappointed by the new Cache. I expected some real changes to the map like they did on Cobble or even Inferno, but FMPONE just changed some elements, the texture and added new pixels. I was really expecting a huge change to the map format itself. What do you think about it?

Just the minor changes he has made on B, A, and middle are going to be huge in a lot of situations. CS is a game of minute details and timings.
2019-10-10 14:35
It’s a good start but it’s underwhelming compared to the Inferno remaster (easily the best map update in CSGO thus far) but the new cache reminds me of the Dust2 update
2019-10-10 14:35
This cache is quite a big upgrade. They never needed to change the layout of the map, just tweak it so you have easier access to some things. Don't fix what isn't broken.

Inferno: - Banana. From the tight pillar-y hallway to straight and wider area with the pillar removed - A site. Removed the roof - Apartment. Removed the awkward second apartment room. (I think it was called bedroom?) Incredibly OP spot. - Dark on B site was lighten up and makes it easier to spot someone in. That's all the significant change I can remember

2019-10-10 15:14
yea i hoped for some crazy things, like adding a passage from mid to a-main or from mid sandbags to b, maybe remove or completly rework the boost. i like a, but it could also get a entry way overhaul. I dont think the additions and the general visuals of the map makes it better for competitive play, i think its much more casual friendly.

VOLCANO and FMPONE! Guys, can you please make de_tuscan return somehow, if you could somehow pull some strings and see if you had any human connections in the Valve world to make that happen. This map could have easily replaced nuke/vertigo/train or something at some point, if made playable once udpated without junk on the map, that'd be so cool!

2019-10-10 15:11
Only plebs with no opinion like that shitmap. Everybody with a decent knowledge of the game knows the map is garbage. Not only it's shitty it's also the most boring map to both watch and play. And im not even saying Vertigo is good map. But it's still miles better than shitferno.
2019-10-10 15:15
lul apparently you're the only one with knowledges, cuz literally all players, analyst and commentators say vertigo is fucking disaster. Not gonna argue with you cuz you seem to have some mental issues. Have a good game on vertigo.
2019-10-10 15:18
So you know all players, analyst and commentators ? Cool story bro. Keep dreaming. And im gonna have a great game on Vertigo. I love how all the silvers on faceit cry when you pick it and then rekt them.
2019-10-10 15:19
inferno narrow choke points throughout entire map, longest rotations, holding sites with grenades till 30 sec left, the map is a disaster people are bitching on inferno because its a new map, it's always been like that
2019-10-10 15:31
I do think that Inferno is pretty awful, which I find sad because it was my favourite map by a long shot in 1.6. I really dislike the GO variant though.

2019-10-10 15:18
Remove mirage, shitty map is boring and is very old if we look at the current map standards. It hasn't gotten a make-over since 2013. Vertigo has so much potential but it;s just sad to see people talk shit about Vertigo when they only play D2, Mirage and Inferno.

I like the small, subtle change but I could understand how some people are a bit underwhelmed. Overall I don't think the flow of Cache needed that much adjusting, it just looked dated compared to some of the more modern maps.

fps is terrible on the new cache, the fps feels like nuke all over again gameplay wise is okay, not very big change, details are still similar, sunroom smoke still wrok
2019-10-11 05:28
it's fucking terrible .. stupid pastel colors.. fps dipping to 140 with 9900k and rtx2070 ... nobody likes cache bring back mill or tuscan give the people what they want .. not the 12 year old boys who que cache mirage only
2019-10-11 05:38
