It seems that the battle royale genre has its peak already behind it. Of course, this does not change the fact that games marked with the letters B and R are still very popular and every publisher wants to get a piece of this profitable cake for themselves. Could the same line of reasoning be followed by Riot Games?
At least this is what PlayerIGN says, an American streamer and YouTuber known for publications and leaks about the scene. In the past the player made several major leaks that later came to be true, including those revolving around PUBG. In his entry, he admitted that, according to his knowledge, a small group of players has been testing the battle royale mode in VALORANT since last week, in which members of the Chinese community are also to be involved.
It is true that at the moment it is not known how advanced the potential work on the new mode would be, but it is worth mentioning that this is not the first time that Riot production is mentioned in the context of BR fun.
Rumor: #Valorant's battle royale is being tested by a small group of players as of last week.— PlayerIGN (@PlayerIGN) November 30, 2020
In any case, it's confirmed there's some kind of exclusive testing with the Chinese players atm.
Recall that there are currently three modes in VALORANT. The basic one is the classic 5v5 matches that involve placing a Spike or disarming it. In addition, players have at their disposal a specific variation on the classic fun model, Spike’s Fever, which introduces various types of reinforcements. The long-awaited mode by the community, deathmatch, has also been available for several weeks now.
More (un)official information on the battle royale mode in VALORANT is expected to come before the end of the year.
