Riot Games has now officially announced Valorant Mobile, an adaptation of its popular free-to-play first-person shooter. It has been exactly one year since the game was released solely on PC. In that time, 14 million of you have picked up your guns and dived into battle.
Valorant has seen more than half a billion games played during its time on PC, becoming one of the go-to team-based titles on the platform. For those of you who are yet to jump into Riot Games’ hit, it puts you in a five-vs-five situation where you take on the role of an attacker or defender in round-based combat. If you enjoy high stakes and flexing your skills, then Valorant might just be the game for you.
To celebrate Valorant and its one-year anniversary, Riot is set to host a month-long celebration that will dole out in-game rewards. Riot will soon send out a range of items, such as a redeemable player card, and a free event pass throughout June.
“To see our growing player community recognise and appreciate what we’re trying to do with Valorant is beyond what we could’ve expected, and we’re thrilled to soon offer the same competitive Valorant experience to even more global players,” says Anna Donlon, Valorant’s executive producer.
