CS:GO Adds Battle Royale Mode; Goes Free-To-Play

Valve has just announced the Counter Strike: Global Offensive Danger Zone update, a free-to-play CSGO battle royale mode based on the classic shooter. You can still buy the game and get the Prime status if you so desire.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players can try out Danger Zone right now on PC, Mac, and Linux. Find what you can, order what you need, prepare for the unexpected. SullyGnome also shows CS:GO had twice the Super Smash Bros. It's playable in Solos, Duos, and Trios, with the developers noting that they're "just getting started".

Up to 18 players are included in a Danger Zone match.

"CS:GO (now available for free) is the full game", the company said in a statement. Missions in each match will give you cash bonuses that you can use to purchase drone deliveries of special weapons. The tablet can be upgraded to gain more detailed intel on the ever-changing Danger Zone. Prime players get matched with their own kind, so the influx of new blood shouldn't disturb the old pros. Danger Zone supports Prime Status matching.

Valve has finally chose to join the Battle Royale hype train, as it has made a decision to take the plunge following the likes of Fortnite, PUBG, H1Z1 and more recently Call of Duty Black Ops 4 to introduce the last man standing and victor takes all game mode.

As for battle royale, Counter-Strike's take on the mode to end all modes is of a smaller scale than genre behemoths like Fortnite and PUBG, with player counts clocking in at 16-18 depending on whether you queue up solo or in a squad of two or three. The Prime status upgrade - matching you with other Prime players and providing extra cosmetic rewards - costs £11.99/€13.25/$14.99. Cash is still important, and can be found lying on the ground, looting enemy players, in safes that can only be accessed by blowing it with a C4 and as a reward for escorting hostages to pick-up zones.
