But you might be asking yourself, "Is CS:GO free?" and the answer is yes! Until some time ago CS:GO was actually paid for, but today there is a free version available on Steam for anyone to download. However, there is also the "Prime" version of the game, which allows you to play with some extras that CS:GO has to offer and this is only possible through payment. Therefore, the status "Prime" can only be acquired via payment.

What am I missing without "Prime" status?

First, if you don't have "Prime" status, you won't gain XP, levels, ranks, and item drops during gameplay. Another thing that can impact your gaming is that you won't be able to participate in ranked CS:GO matches. And finally, you won't have access to bonus XP and Service Medals.
Currently, the price to upgrade to the “Prime” status of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is costing around $15. But if you just want to play CS:GO for fun, let's get to the steps on how to download CS:GO for free on Steam.
  1. First, you need to have the Steam platform installed on your computer. If you don't have it, go to the official website of "Steam" and click on "Install Steam", but we'll let you know that you'll have to create an account on the platform.
  2. After installing Steam, you will need to run the platform and log in with your account already created.
  3. Now inside the platform, you will go to the "Store" tab. When doing this, you just type for "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive" and the game will appear in the bar.
  4. With that, scroll down the page until you find a green colored button and click "Play".
  5. After clicking "Play", a window will open for you to select where to install CS:GO on your computer and the estimated download time.
  6. Once the CS:GO download is complete, just point your mouse cursor to the "Library" tab. There you will find Counter-Strike: Global Offensive installed and ready to play.
  7. Click on the green button labeled "Play" and enjoy.
