It seems like everyone is adding a battle royale mode to their games, whether it's Black Desert Online or Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Yes, you read that right! Counter Strike: Global Offensive is getting a battle royale experience called "Danger Zone." Danger Zone requires tactical gameplay where players use their wits, skill, and resources to fight to the finish.
Danger Zone features eighteen players. You can play the mode on your own or as a team. The game is many years old and it features quite dated visuals. Luckily, it has a strong player base who are loyal to the title. The tight gameplay mechanics make it a classic in many regards.
This information comes alongside the announcement that the full game is going free-to-play. New players will receive access to all game modes, matchmaking, and a limited set of item drops and weapon cases. However, keep in mind that there is a tier called "Prime Status." According to Valve, Prime Status is an upgrade available to all Counter Strike: Global Offensive players. When you have Prime Status, you are matched with other players who also have Prime Status, and these users are eligible for exclusive souvenir items, item drops, and weapon cases.
