Counter-Strike Global Offensive features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic Counter-Strike content.

Valve announced late yesterday evening that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will now become free to play, as well as a smaller iteration of the ever-popular battle royale game mode we've seen dominated by the likes of Fortnite and PUBG in the a year ago.

CS:GO's guns have the same behavior and damage in Danger Zone as in other CS:GO game modes. Also appearing on the tablet is the player's inventory, which differs from every other battle royale game but Black Ops 4 concerning layout.

- Recent Teammates now shows teammates from Danger Zone matches. But to resist temptation was becoming less and less about discipline and more about seeing how far a game should truly stretch. Weapons will be from the CS:GO arsenal, like the AK-47 and Desert Eagle. From their they will begin looting weapons, health, cash and more to use throughout the match.

Sen. Christopher S. Murphy Doubts Trump's Optimistic Claims on China Trade Talks
Kudlow said he did not think that auto tariffs were imminent, though he added that they were in Trump's "quiver of arrows". High Chinese retaliatory tariffs on USA soybeans have caused the US exports of soybeans to drop by as much as 97 percent .

To celebrate its new free status, CS: GO has introduced an all-new battle royale mode named Danger Zone. If you've never played Counter-Strike before, be prepared to die a lot, and often. The Prime status upgrade - matching you with other Prime players and providing extra cosmetic rewards - costs £11.99/€13.25/$14.99. 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.

Blacksite, Danger Zone's single map is relatively small in comparison to PUBG, Fortnite and Blackout, but it is still jarring for the average Counter-Strike player in size. The XP is earned by playing Danger Zone.

Valve has released an update to address issues found after the release of the new Danger Zone update. But the bullet points above offer the gist, and at this point, Valve is essentially giving away goodies to people who probably bought the game years ago.

That's still very impressive obviously, but it's nice to see that Valve's change of tack has paid off.
