In the early days of Counter-Strike, where it existed as a mod of Half-Life, it was pretty much free to play where anyone could get their hands on it. However, when Valve decided to launch Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the company became a paid-up title. Granted, it was not the most expensive game we've ever seen, but it was definitely a change.
However, that seems to be changing since then, as Valve announced that CS: GO is now becoming a free-to-play title. Players who paid for the game during the day will be upgraded to prime status, which used to cost $ 1
Valve has also announced a prize new Battle Royale mode called Danger Zone, in which players can fight up to 18 other players as the last person. It's easy to see why Valve chose this route, as Epic's Fortics made the Battle Royale genre so popular, and by playing for free, more players are encouraged to play the game in the past Price of $ 15 could have prevented some of it.
Whether or not Fortnite's popularity is dethroned by this is unclear (though we have to say that this is unlikely), but CS-GO players have long been able to appreciate the change in tempo.
