“Counter-Strike: Global Offensive,” known to players as “CS:GO,” is now free-to-play. Additionally, Valve announced a new battle royale game mode known as Danger Zone.

Danger Zone is available now, and when players log in for a session of “CS:GO,” their game files will automatically be updated on Steam to include the new “Danger Zone” mode. Players will also get an automatic upgrade to Prime Status for free. All Prime Status players will be able to secure a new Prime-exclusive Danger Zone souvenir in the form of the MP5-SD | Lab Rats.

For new players, the option to play until reaching Prime Status or pay their way there is available. Paying in will cost $14.99.
