Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now free-to-play with a new battle royale mode

YOU THINK THIS IS A GAME?!

Gosh, the mighty have fallen when it comes to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The game isn’t hemorrhaging players like certain other titles, but it does appear to be bleeding pretty notably. How can you reverse this trend? Why, you just add in a free-to-play battle royale mode! That always works, right? It worked one time!

Players who already bought and own CS:GO will have special Prime status, which does not mean that these players will lead the Autobots but does mean that they’ll be matched against other Prime players and will gain access to a special weapon through playing the battle royale mode. That mode is dubbed Danger Zone and still includes many of the same basic mechanics for CS:GO, including weapon purchasing and rescuing hostages. Let’s see if this can rescue the game’s dipping numbers.

I paid like $10 for CS:GO a hundred years ago.
I want compensation for this F2P Betrayal!

They give all previous buyers Prime status automatically, but all F2P players who reach level 21 can get Prime status for free.

mini-battle royale matches are a nice addition. Matches that last less than 10 minutes are heck lot more tolerable than a 30 minute regular battle royale match.

But battle royale for CSGO? Seems… I don’t know…

Remember when Valve was an industry leader rather than playing “follow the leader”, showing up years late to industry trends?

Those were good times.

Then they made Steam & sat back and collected Other Peoples Money :)

Honestly I am excited. Counter-strike has always been my favorite fps. I really love the gunplay in it.

Something that succeeded for somebody so now everybody must jump on board. Looking forward to the end of 2019 “how the battle royale market collapsed” editorials.

we had alot of Genre ERA when one Genre was a HIT and than kind of dissaper, this not going to change

Quests Games – the good times when Siera rules and mad great Games.

The Arcade Platforms – Mario,Sonic and the beloved brawl fighiting.

FPS Arena Games – Quake & Unreal (RIP)

The MMORPG ERA when everybody trying to make the WOW KILLER.

the Moba Return (Dota the WC mod was before) with LoL

OverWatch the ruller of Arena Class return (TF and Quake mods was before)

Pubg -> fortnite

so as i see it its a matter of time and this BR going away in few years and something new going to come.

for me the best FPS was UT but now all i have is Quake Champions and Destiny :)
