And you think talk of “League of Legends” is bad?
Riot Games returns for its first new game offer since the release of “LoL” 11 years ago. “Valorant” is set to enter the market at some point this summer, and it has already set a record.
Objective-based first person shooters provide alternative PC gamers for a busy and energetic “Overwatch” game while still offering a number of strategies, teamwork and fair coordination.
With the beta version airing on Tuesday, there are quite a lot of rumors about the game. Here’s what you need to know about, what can be, game modifiers in esports:
What is ‘Valorant’?
“Valorant” is a 5-on-5 multiplayer first-person shooter developed by the makers of “League of Legends.” This is the company’s first foray into the FPS arena.
The concept is simple: Use one of several “Agents” to play as, one team attack and the other survive. The attack team must plant the bomb (known as the “Spike”) in one of two points in the defending team’s territory.
Each round ends one of three ways:
- Nails planted / blown up.
- One team kills the other five team members.
- Nails are tamed.
The best game of 25. Each round lasts 100 seconds, but can end before all team members must be eliminated.
Before starting each round, there is a 30-second preparation phase where you can buy weapons and arrange your loading accordingly. Some things you can buy include weapons, armor, and abilities.
The art style appears similar to “Overwatch,” the popular 2016 game abysmal from Activision-Blizzard. Although, the game doesn’t seem to play with panic like “Overwatch”, at least from the initial flow and indications. The game seems to play a little slower and a little more nervous than “Overwatch” too.
The agitated nature of the game will also be a resemblance to the game “Counterstrike”, a PC series that was known for its incredible popularity until the early 2000s.
Some similarities can also be drawn to “Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege,” although the tactical realism of the game is not clearly seen through the initial video (although it seems that some agents share the same abilities as the characters from “Rainbow Six”).
Is ‘Valorant’ present on PS4 and Xbox?
Until now, “Valorant” was strictly regulated to be launched on Windows, which smells for console gamers. (We also like good games, friend.)
For those who are not part of the cult of PC games, there is good news: Riot Games has not ruled out the possibility of a port to console, which is only a smart business.
“Our focus now is on the PC,” lead game designer Trevor Romleski via Twitch streamer, TimTheTatman. “We are open to exploring new opportunities for other platforms, but for now our focus is now on the PC platform.”
There are currently 10 known agents in the game, although the field will definitely develop both as the game is released and in the years or the following season.
Each Agent has one ability that can be used at any time during the round. Each agent also has two more abilities that you can choose to buy during the preparation period of purchase, such as weapons or armor.
Each character also has an ultimate (ala “Overwatch”), which is charged when you get killed in the game. You can also pick up balls to charge your ultimate.
Like most FPS games, there are also four classes to choose from: Duel, Sentinel, Initiator and Controller.
