[PC Steam] Free - Counter-Strike: Global Offensive CS: GO Goes Battle Royale and Free to Play @ Steam
Just announced this morning.
Valve just announced Danger Zone, "a fast-paced battle royale game mode built on CS:GO's tactical gameplay where players use their wits, skill, and resources to fight to the finish." Additionally, CS:GO itself is now free to play.
CS:GO players will now be separated into two matchmaking groups: Prime and non-prime. "When you have Prime Status you are matched with other players who also have Prime Status, and Prime users are eligible for Prime-exclusive souvenir items, item drops, and weapon cases."
CS:GO going free-to-play signifies, in part, that Valve is confident in the game's current anticheat solution, delivered through a machine learning system called VACnet.
