New Riot Game, Valorant, Revealed

The developers of League of Legends have officially announced their next game that has been rumored for quite a bit on the Internet. The new title is Valorant which is a 5v5 free to play shooter that will be released in summer 2020. Set in a near-future Earth, the players will control special agents with unique abilities. These agents come from different locations and cultures on Earth similar to Overwatch’s playable characters. Unlike Overwatch, Valorant players will lock in as an agent at the start of the match. The teams will switch back and forth between attack and defense but the player has to play as the agent they chose in both rounds. Riot Games executive producer Anna Donlon says that the shooter will “uphold the fundamental values of a competitive tactical shooter: precise shooting, lethal gunplay, and strategic execution.” Riot Games have also released the PC specs needed for the game. A quick glance at the specs reveals that the game is not a demanding piece of software. This news comes after Riot Games announced development on new games other than League of Legends which has been their focus for the previous decade. They have recently revealed other games such as Legends of Runeterra, Project L and Project F. Are you guys excited about a new Overwatch competitor? Still, going to keep playing Overwatch? Comment below and let me know.
