Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Gets Free-To-Play Version

Players looking to get into Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for the first time will have an easier time getting eased in with the new free-to-play version.

If you’re somehow a PC gamer that hasn’t picked up Counter-Strike: Global Offensive… how? Anyways, the game has gotten a free-to-play version that’ll allow you to play against AI opponents. You can also view competitive matches. You’ll need to purchase the full game for a chance to go online, but Counter-Strike: Global Offensive frequently goes on sale so if you end up having fun with the free-to-play version, you’ll likely be able to pick up the full version at a discounted price.

Newcomers to the series should definitely consider giving this free-to-play version a try if they have any interest at all in going online. Counter-Strike is a notoriously tougher competitive shooter than what’s available on the market right now. It relies heavily on map knowledge and skill with a mouse and keyboard. You’ll definitely want to take the time to learn every gun and map the game has if you plan on joining a real lobby at any point.

You can pick up Counter-Stike: Global Offensive right now for Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux. The free-to-play version can be found by going right here.
