Valorant has completed its one year of release on PC and Riot Games has informed that, in the first year of Valorant, it has registered over 14 million players. As per the studio, there have been played over half a billion games in Valorant to date.
On this first anniversary, Riot Games has officially announced that the studio is going to bring a mobile version of Valorant. They are basically targeting a larger audience. Meanwhile, the developers have announced that Valorant is going to offer a series of celebratory events throughout June.
Wccftech’s Kai has rated the game 7.8 out of 10 in the official review.
“It’s easy to label Valorant as a hero shooter or yet another Counter-Strike inspired game but the fusion together turns it into something completely different. While Crucible and Overwatch put 100% of the combat approach onto the heroes themselves, Valorant changes things up with a 50-50 design: half of the combat revolves around the agents and their ability loadouts while the other half is the gunplay.”
“Valorant’s team composition is more than just picking the hero with the best ultimate ability. In every round, each hero has the chance to be useful and truly shine in tandem with the other players on your squad. Each hero fits into one archetype that feels different from the standard MMO trinity of attacker, defender and healer. Initiators have abilities that help the team push forward to an objective and distract or disarm enemy combatants while controllers help to move the flow of battle in a particular fashion by deploying barricades and smoke screens or trip wires that alter your team when someone crosses the threshold.”
“[…] Valorant doesn’t stray too far from Riot Games’ plethora of hero-focused titles. With the fusion of high-level gunplay and hero mechanics, Valorant is both highly competitive and unfortunately too highly skill focused for casual players to enjoy.”
