Valorant Mobile Coming Soon! Riot Games Officials Confirm!
June 15, 2021
The popular tactical FPS, released last year, is finally getting a mobile version!
Riot Games has announced a new version of Valorant, a tactical FPS game, for mobile devices releasing soon! The creator of the world’s most popular game, League of Legends, made the announcement following the Valorant PC version’s first anniversary. The exact date of release is yet to be announced with more details of the game.
Released in June 2020, Valorant broke various stream records on Twitch with its popularity, and has since grown to replace many other FPS games. The game takes the cue from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Overwatch and feature mechanics and character abilities similar to these titles. However, Valorant is a bit more refined with added elements and multiple classes.
Speaking on the Valorant mobile launch announcement, Valorant executive producer Anna Donlon said, “One of our top goals this first year was to earn the trust and respect of the global FPS community, and to prove to them that Valorant will always uphold the fundamentals of a truly worthwhile competitive tac-shooter.”
“To see our growing player community, recognise and appreciate what we’re trying to do with Valorant is beyond what we could have expected and we are thrilled to soon offer the same competitive Valorant experience to even more global players,” she added.
While it’s exciting news for Valorant fans, it will definitely give the various other similar mobile titles a run for their money. The most popular FPS games on android are Call of Duty Mobile, PUBG Mobile, Free Fire, and yet to be announced Battlegrounds Mobile India.
As a lot of information is still unknown, it is hard to decide how good this game will be, but the Valorant community seems to be thoroughly excited following the game being announced.
