Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Adds Battle Royale Mode "Danger Zone"

Понедельник, 10 Дек, 2018

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. Danger Zone matches typically last about 10 minutes. Perhaps trying to emulate that game a little, Counter-Strike: GO now has a Battle Royale mode...and has also gone free-to-play. Fresh-faced CS:GO newcomers can earn Prime Status by either leveling up to Rank 21 in-game or paying the $14.99 upgrade fee. And a move to free-to-play is bound to generate a large influx of players who have never played before and won't stick around to learn the ins and outs of a brutally hard game.

Danger Zone places up to 16 players in Solo and up to 18 in Duos and Trios to scavenge for money, guns, and supply drops on the map, called Blacksite. In addition to special missions like hostages, players can also take on contracts to assassinate high value targets.

You'll also be able to find cash in the level, which is what you'll be using to purchase weapons and upgrade your tablet. This suits the scope of the game well enough though, as the game will only accommodate 18 players instead of the 100-man battle royales of other games. Having Prime status means you get matched with other prime players, get access to exclusive weapons and other Prime drops.

"Counter-Strike: Global Offensive", known to players as "CS:GO", is now free-to-play. Anyone who played the game before the switch will get a Loyalty Badge, which can be displayed on their profile. Players enter a match with up to 18 other players, and the last one standing is the victor.

Do weapons behave the same as they do in other Counter-Strike: Global Offensive game modes? Yes. Valve clarified that revenue includes "DLC, in-game sales, and Community Marketplace game fees".

Valve's changes come at a time when it faces several challenges in the marketplace.

That number made CS:GO the most watched game on Twitch around 4 pm CT, beating Fortnite's 150,000 viewers on the day of its seventh season release.
