Leage of Legends developer, Riot Games has announced the real name of Project A, Valorant, the game is a 5 vs 5 tactical shooter with a twist, super powers. The game was announced earlier today, according to Valorant’s website the game will deliver “at least at least 30 frames per second on most min-spec computers, 60 to 144 FPS on modern gaming rigs”. Following the inspiration from Counter Strike, the game’s shooting is intended to be precise, and highly-lethal. Strategy and tactics will take a big role in Valorant.
Imagine this: tactical shooter meets hypernatural powers. Everyone’s got guns and a unique set of abilities, so how do you beat someone with the speed of wind? Use your own moves to outplay them and beat them to the shot. Valorant is a game for bold strategists who dare to make the unexpected play, because if it wins, it works.
Taking a look at the ESRB it can be noticed that Valorant will contain in-game purchases, it remains to be seen if the game will feature microtransactions for more cosmetic content, or if those purchases will give an advantage in game.
Riot Games’ Project A was announced last year during a streaming event that celebrated its 10th Anniversary’s, other announcements that took place on that day include a new fighting game and a new e-Sports Management Sim.
Legends of Runeterra is another project being produced at Riot Games, the game is an upcoming free to play card game, it takes place in the same universe as League of Legends and it’s planned to release for PC, iOS and android and will be cross-platform. Legends of Runeterra is scheduled for a release later this year.
Riot Games was founded in 2006 by Brandon Beck and Marc Merrill with the intent to change the way video games are made and supported for players. In 2009, Riot released its debut title League of Legends to worldwide acclaim. The game has since gone on to become the one of the most played PC games and shortly became a key driver of the explosive growth of eSports.
