Today in Paris, the ESWC 2012 finals begin. With the newly added in-game spectator client – GOTV, players can easily view the games right inside of CS:GO. To mark this event starting tomorrow, Thursday at 10am to Sunday at 1pm PST, CS:GO will be available to everyone free of charge.

The ESWC is the first major tournament featuring CS:GO, starting with France this weekend and next up is Sweden in November at DreamHack Winter with a prize pool over $45,000!

CS:GO will be available to download and play via the steam client.
