As per earlier leaks, this morning the American studio Riot Games flooded us with information about their first game in the genre of First Person Shooter. The title, which until now was called Project A, will now be called VALORANT. The creators also revealed further details.
It is certain that the game will take place in teams of 5, and the producers themselves characterize VALORANT as a shooter based on various characters. The competition on each map will take place in the MR12 system, i.e. up to 13 rounds won by a given team, i.e. it will probably be shorter than in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, where the MR15 rule applies (up to 16 rounds won).
As was known before, in VALORANT players choose heroes, and each of them will have a different set of skills, but accurate shooting is to be the most important aspect. According to Twitter user Slasher, eight characters are initially expected to be available: Sage, Cypher, Brimstone, Jett, Phoenix, Viper, Sova and Omen. However, it can be assumed that this group will grow over time.
VALORANT is also to offer a lot of different weapons, which seems to confirm the trailer published today, in which we can see the following buying menu.
From the beginning, Riot intends to counteract all people who will want to cheat in the game by introducing appropriate anti-social security measures. The developers clearly care about the players’ comfort, which is also indicated by the fact that they have already announced the presence of 128 tickrate servers, which Valve has been asked for for a long time from those who play matchmaking in CS:GO.
VALORANT will be a free game, and the manufacturer ensures that thanks to the appropriate optimization, everyone will be able to enjoy the game, even those whose equipment is not the latest. The premiere of the PC game in most regions of the world is scheduled for summer 2020.
Finally, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the gameplay presented today, which comes from the alpha version of the game.
