After days of anticipation and baiting from the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive development team over at Valve, we finally got the announcement. CS:GO Danger Zone has been revealed! The game mode is described as “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.”
The 18-player game mode will see players drop into the map titled “Blacksite” where they battle to be the last player standing. The mode will feature aspects from different game modes including hostages, which you can carry to the safe zone for an extra cash bonus. This leads us to believe the economy that Counter-Strike is known for will continue to be an important aspect of the game.
There will be delivery drones, an upgrade-able tablet for your map, and more.
Welcome to the Danger Zone. https://t.co/GT5ZLj4FBX
