The new game made by Riot Games is predicted as a competing FPS game Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) begins to show its seriousness. Recently, they formalized the name of the project and was named by VALORANT.
In addition to formalizing the name, Riot has also created a Twitter account for VALORANT. Not only that, you can also watch the footage of gameplay for 2 minutes. Even so, this gameplay is still in the early stages so that it can change in the future.
VALORANT has a map concept almost similar to CS: GO. Seen from the gameplay, they have a map concept and together bring together 10 players and are divided into 2 groups. Not only that, they have the same faction, Counter Terrorist and Terrorist.
Based on a tweet from Rod “Slasher” Breslau who is also an esports and game consultant, there are a total of 17 weapons available on VALORANT. The weapons available also vary like the same Vandal as AK47 or Sheriff who is of the Revolver type.
This game also combines the concept of Overwatch namely the presence of skills in each character. So far, there have been 8 characters leaked. One of the characters is Sage, which is seen from his skill as a support for the team. He can provide slow, healing, and also turn on friends.
VALORANT itself has no relationship with characters in League of Legends. It is planned that this game will be released at the end of 2020. Even so, it is unknown when the release date.
So far, VALORANT has received positive responses from various groups when entering the experimental stage. One of them is HenryG, known as a former CS: GO pro and caster player who mentions it as the best game he played after CS: GO.
