  • CS:GO Danger Zone Battle Royale Free to Play Now! New CS:GO Skins

Perhaps trying to emulate that game a little, Counter-Strike: GO now has a Battle Royale mode...and has also gone free-to-play.

If they already don't have this status, players can make a $15 purchase (with real money, mind you) to achieve "Prime Status", which will give access to "souvenir" weapons and items. Rather than supporting 100 players, Danger Zone's cap is limited to either 16 players when jumping in solo or 18 when playing as a two- or three-person squad. Additionally, Valve announced a new battle royale game mode known as Danger Zone. Danger Zone cases will unlock rare special skins.

If you previously bought CS:GO, your account status will be upgraded to Prime.

In our review of CS:GO back in 2012, we called the game "Great" calling it a "top-tier tactics game that will probably share the long-tailed legacy of its predecessors". You can also use the tablet to track where enemies are having their drone drops, allowing you to potentially pilfer the goods. Up to 18 players will travel to Blacksite and drop onto the map from a helicopter.


Prior to Thursday, the first-person shooter game was $14.99. Also appearing on the tablet is the player's inventory, which differs from every other battle royale game but Black Ops 4 concerning layout. The item pool will be filled with current and classic Counter-Strike items, including weapons, cash, and even a little C4. That's not to say its choices end up in bad games - Artifact seems great so far - but if you're looking for innovation, it comes from elsewhere.

In addition, the game is now completely free to play, following the previous September announcement of a separate Free Edition.

This mode will be fully accessible to anyone who plays the free to play model of the game, as will the standard game modes. If you've never played Counter-Strike before, be prepared to die a lot, and often. Are you interested in the new Danger Zone battle royale? Time will tell how it ultimately pans out, though, and you can find more info in the FAQ.
