Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve's aging online first-person shooter, but now unstoppable, is now free-to-play. But not only! He also just introduced a new Battle Royale mode called the Danger Zone.
This is not Counter-Strike's first alliance with free-to-play, of course; Valve launched the free version of the game in September, although this version only allowed players to deal with robots: the entire company was intended as a means for newcomers to familiarize themselves with weapons and maps of Counter-Strike.
The new free-to-play version of Valve, however, is the real deal and provides free access to the entire Counter-Strike: global offensive experience, multiplayer and everything.
According to Valve, all players who bought the game before the upgrade will see their accounts updated to Prime Status (which usually costs $ 14.99 USD) for free. Prime Status players are paired with others, and are eligible for the exclusive Prime Zone Lab Rats Hazard Zone MP5-SD – earned by earning XP in Danger Zone mode – and the new Danger Zone Case, which includes 17 finishes for weapons, and rare Horizon knives.
And as far as Danger Zone is concerned, Valve describes it as a "frenetic" real-world battle game mode based on the tactical gameplay of CS: GO, in which players use their ingenuity, skills and resources to fight to the end ". It features a map, Blacksite and modes for Solos, Duos and Trios, with 16 players per 10-minute game in the first and 18 players in both team modes.
The games begin with the claim of a landing zone, so once on the ground, players can begin to explore cash and complete contracts and mini-missions, such as rescuing hostages, for a further increase in income. Money, in turn, is used to buy weapons that give a little more punch than your starting knife, and which are ferried on the map by drones.
The weapons include pistols, rifles, machine guns and heavy weapons, as well as C4 bombs and throwing weapons. The biggest deal, however, is the personal tablet, which can display enemy positions, show the path of their drones and predict the path of the incoming Danger Zone – all of which adds a tactical advantage to the next-generation family formula. You will find more details on the Danger Zone web page.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive free-to-play upgrade is now available, so you only need a quick trip on Steam and some time to download if you want to give Danger Zone a vortex.
