Valorant, is a 5 vs 5 tactical shooter with a twist, super powers. The game was announced recently, 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.
Riot Games has explained the unique mechanics of the tactical shooter, each agent will have a special ability, this would give them an advantage in battle, but the game is expected to be balanced, an open beta is expected to be announced soon.
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.
