A Possibly Big Update to CS:GO Coming Tomorrow (It's DANGER ZONE - BR Mode)


Recommended Posts


PCGamesN speculates it is "survival mode"



Valve wants to know what you’re doing on Wednesday. If your answer is anything other than ‘playing CSGO,’ you might want to reconsider, as signs increasingly point to this being a major update. We’re long overdue for a new operation, and reports that the new Survival mode is impending have only intensified – exactly what this update will contain is unconfirmed, but signs point to it being a big one.


The only official thing we have is a tweet from csgo_dev – the official account on Twitter – asking “What are you doing Wednesday?” That’s accompanied by a new profile picture featuring a black silhouetted figure on a red background. The pose and stance are similar to the CS:GO logo that was previously there, but it’s not exactly the same.


CS:GO hasn’t seen a new operation since Hydra, and this survival mode has been pending even longer. Another leaked screen noted by Nors3 on Twitter shows the mode being tested, this time with a map called Blacksite. Signs point to this being a sort of CS:GO battle royale, though likely one with a much smaller player count than the 100-person battles currently associated with the genre.


We’ll be waiting for December 5 to get the details.

CS:GO goes Battle Royale and free to play


Valve just announced Danger Zone, "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." Additionally, CS:GO itself is now free to play.


The mode accommodates 16 players in singles, and 18 players in duos or triples. Danger Zone features the same weapon behavior and damage as conventional CS:GO, Valve says. Like CS:GO, the matches are short, lasting about 10 minutes. It makes many other changes to CS:GO's systems:

  • Each player carries an upgradeable special tablet device (on Tab) for tracking other players and accessing a limited buy menu
  • You start with just a knife—aerial delivery drones ferry purchased weapons and equipment directly to your position
  • Each player publicly claims a landing zone before rappelling into the match
  • Cash can be found in the environment and you can also bring hostages to rescue zones

  • There's currently one map, called Blacksite - it's small by Battle Royale standards, but big for Counter-Strike

  • The map is divided into hexagonal zones, which are randomly, occasionally bombarded by an airstrike

  • Ammo is scarce: even purchased weapons are handed to you with almost no ammo in them

  • Your weapon skins from the base game are carried into Danger Zone

Meanwhile, in all modes of CS:GO, players will now be separated into two matchmaking groups: Prime and non-prime. If you already owned CS:GO, you're a Prime player. "When you have Prime Status you are matched with other players who also have Prime Status, and Prime users are eligible for Prime-exclusive souvenir items, item drops, and weapon cases." Danger Zone arrives, of course, with 17 new seasonal weapon skins.
