New Riot Shooter, Valorant Announced: Screenshots, Release Window, PC Specs

Riot Games has officially revealed the title of its tactical shooter formerly known as Project A. Valorant is a 5v5, free-to-play shooter from the developers of League of Legends that is set launch in summer 2020.
Valorant features a cast of characters known as agents who are from real-world cultures and locations, meaning it’s not tied to the lore of its League of Legends series. Set in a near-future Earth, characters will come from a wide range of locations and cultures. Each agent has a set of unique abilities, though the core gameplay is focused on tactical, team-based shooting.

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.” Some examples Riot gives is how “a player with steady aim and a pistol will always beat an unsteady sniper.” Time-to-kill is also low, meaning headshots are usually instant kills and rifle kills take 3-4 bullets. Recoil is said to be punishing.

Two teams will work together and lock in as an agent for the entire duration of a round-based, attackers vs. defenders match. The team who wins a best-of-24-rounds match wins the game.Riot says it has high-end performance in mind for Valorant and as such implemented dedicated 128-tick servers for global players, a custom-built netcode for precise hit registration, and proprietary anti-cheat prevention and detection.
