Riot Games have unveiled their upcoming first-person shooter, Valorant. The game is a five-on-five “tactical shooter”, and starts out with 10 different unique characters; more to be added on later on. More from Riot Games below:
Riot Games presents a new competitive stage for you to shine from. A 5v5 character-based tactical shooter where creativity is your greatest weapon.
Here’s what we think it takes for you to trust a game enough to invest: 128-tick servers, at least 30 frames per second on most min-spec computers (even dating back a decade), 60 to 144 FPS on modern gaming rigs, a global spread of datacenters aimed at <35ms for players in major cities around the world, a netcode we’ve been obsessing over for years, and a commitment to anti-cheat from day one. Shooting in Valorant is precise, consequential, and highly-lethal – we want you to win on your skill and strategy alone.
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.
