Through their social networks Riot Games announced Valoranta title that will arrive free of charge for mid-year for PC users. The game will be in a form of 5vs5 in first person, something that is sure to rememore a bit to a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive mixed with things of Overwatchbecause it also has the added powers in their character. This will be the second title from the company in the market, then the released by the franchise League of Legends: LoL (2009) and Legends of Runterra (2020).
Riot Games seeks to go beyond the universe of LoL, to expand its audience and breadth of market. For this, they will come Valorant, your new shooter free which has as a premise the games of 5 vs 5 for the best of 24 rounds. Of these 12 will be in the role of attack and the remaining in the defense, something that could give a good dynamic to the game. The goal of the title passes to detonate a bomb in any part of the map or turn it off, if it is to be the defense team.
To generate items more fluid, there will be no limitations in the use of weapons and have no restriction of use per character. It should be noted that each of these have special abilities, something that without a doubt remember to Overwatch, the video game Blizzard that will be one of its biggest competitors of the market. However, these powers will not be fatal and will have the objective to create strategic situations, thus giving them more prominence and hierarchy to the weapons.
The company points to that the game is to succeed in becoming one of esports most important of the year, so that it is developing an effective system anti-cheat. An example is the introduction of the fog of war, a function that hides the locations in which there are the players up to the time prior to entering the field of vision of the enemy. This prevents the use of wallhacks, while the architecture of the title avoids the use of mods that can change functionality of the title.
In terms of the requirements it can be said that Valorant you can work almost with the bare minimum, which gives the opening of a large audience of players. These will be able to use just about any computer of recent years, as its demand is very low. Then, the requirements to play Valorant according to FPS:
Optimal requirements (144 FPS or more)
Recommended system requirements (60 FPS)
Minimum requirements (30 FPS)
However, beyond the hardware requirements of a large part of the functionality of the title will pass more by the internet connection available to the user. To improve this, and not rely so much on issues of third parties, Riot it will use dedicated servers that will allow users to play to 128 FPS. This will definitely help so that they have a dynamic experience and high-level, something almost exclusive to the aspirations of any shooter. In addition, it will be used Riot Directa system that works to reduce the ping of the users.
There is No doubt that Valorant it will be one of the shooters most anticipated of the year, because with the support of Riot Games behind you can expect something of very good quality. However, this is not the only movement in the market, that will make the developer during the next few months, as also expected League of Legends: Wild Rift, Project F and Project Lthese last two also inspired in the universe of LOL.
