CS:GO Goes Free to Play, Offers Prime & Non-Prime Status

Now that it’s free-to-play, CS:GO’s player count is rocketing

Valve has chose to give in on the battle royale craze by announcing a new free-to-play BR game mode called "Danger Zone" for CS:GO. Yes, you read that right!

This mode will be fully accessible to anyone who plays the free to play model of the game, as will the standard game modes. In short, Prime Status grants some exclusive items, drops, and weapon cases, and Prime players are matched with one another.

I am already a CS:GO player with Prime Status. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is the latest game to implement Battle Royale. Additionally, CS:GO itself is now free to play. Not only has the enduring competitive shooter gone fully free-to-play on Steam, but Valve has added its own take on battle royale.

News about a potential battle royale mode arriving in Counter-Strike: GO surfaced earlier this year, though the company didn't confirm the speculation. You can also use the tablet to track where enemies are having their drone drops, allowing you to potentially pilfer the goods.

More information about the new mode can be found here. Expect weapons to have the same properties as they do in the core game, with looting being a big focus of "Danger Zone". Explore your environment and complete special missions to out-earn your rivals. SullyGnome also shows CS:GO had twice the Super Smash Bros. Medi-Shot is available as the antidote to recover health quickly during the Danger Zone mode. New players shouldn't be intimidated, as they will be given "non-prime" member status and placed into a separate matchmaking pool to avoid unbalanced gameplay. The total number of players in a match is 16 for solo games, and 18 for team games. Matches feature 18 players, each equipped with a tablet that offers intel on others.

Long-term players will be happy to learn that skins carry over from the base game to Danger Zone, and there are seventeen new seasonal skins up for grabs.
