Counter-Strike: GO adds new battle royale mode and goes free-to-play

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has now gone free-to-play, and with that change developers Valve and Hidden Path Entertainment have added a new battle royal game mode. The new mode is called Danger Zone and you can enter into a match with up to 18 other players, with the last one standing deemed the victor. The Danger Zone battle royale mode starts off like other games in the genre, like Fortnite or PUBG, where youre dropped into an .ever-shrinking map — CS: Go calls it the Blacksite — and need to hunt for guns and equipment. Drones also send down packages that can benefit your gameplay, similar to the supply drops of competing BR games. But in addition to fighting each other to the death, you can also take on missions and rescue hostages on your way around the map to earn a cash bonus when the game is over. Danger Zone matches each last about 10 minutes and you can participate by yourself or in teams of two or three. Each player also gets a bit more health, so theyre more able to tank attacks than they are in standard CS: GO matches, which is similar to how Call of Duty handles health in its BR mode Blackout in the recently released Black Ops 4. CS:GO used to cost $15, so the new lack of a price tag might make the game appeal to people looking for a free-to-play first-person shooter to pick up. For players who already own the game, theyll get a free upgrade to Prime Status, which is CS: GOs premium tier that ordinarily costs an additional $15. (Prime Status players are also now able to earn a souvenir submachine gun to celebrate the launch.) While its unlikely that these new perks will knock Fortnite off its battle royale throne, they could entice quite a few lapsed CS: GO players to come back.
