Valorant is a free online first-person shooter that focus on tactics and the appropriate use of the special abilities of heroes. The production also pays great attention to offering equal opportunities to players. The development and release of Valorant was done by Riot Games.

Plot

Valorant is set in the near future. During the game, we play the role of one of the agents from different parts of the world, who fight against a threat that could have serious consequences for humanity.

Mechanics

Valorant is an online shooter, where the player takes part in 5 vs 5 matches. We have at our disposal a few heroes with different fighting styles. Each hero has skills - the basic one, available in each match for free, two optional ones, which can be purchased at the beginning of the round, and a fourth special one, which is obtained after making a sufficient number of killings or collecting power spheres available on the map.

Players have access to a full arsenal of weapons from the beginning of the game. In order to be active during a match, a weapon must be purchased for the virtual currency that you get during the game.

An important part of the gameplay in Valorant is tactics. Each map is designed in such a way that many different strategies can be used.

Game modes

In Valorant there is only a multiplayer mode.

Technical aspects

Valorant is based on the popular Unreal Engine 4 - the graphic design is maintained in a slightly comic book-like style, reminiscent of Team Fortress 2 or Overwatch.

Riot Games also made sure that Valorant was as accessible as possible. The game has been developed in such a way that its system requirements are as low as possible. In addition, players don't have to deal with big lags during the game. This effect was obtained thanks to the studio's network infrastructure and cooperation with internet providers.

Other information

Developers of Valorant has also focused on the fight against cheaters. The game has been designed to minimize the risk of potential cheating - a fog of war has been used to make it impossible to read the positions of players out of sight, and traffic and shooting calculations are made on servers.
