Valorant, first teased under the codename Project A in October 2019, is a first-person shooter developed and published by Riot Games for Microsoft Windows. The game takes inspiration from the Counter-strike series of tactical shooters. The development of the game started in 2014. It is a team-based first-person hero shooter set in the near future. Players are assigned to either the attacking or defending team with each team having five players on it.

Gameplay

Valorant has a team-based first-person hero shooter with 5 players per team. Every player starts each round with a "classic" pistol and one or more "signature ability" charges. Other weapons and ability charges can be purchased using an in-game economic system that awards money based on the outcome of the previous round, any kills the player is responsible for, and any objectives completed.

There are 16 agents to choose from. They are Brimstone, Viper, Omen, Cypher, Sova, Sage, Phoenix, Jett, Raze, Breach, Reyna, Killjoy, Skye, Yoru, Astra, KAY/O, and Chamber.

There is a total of 5 weapons: classic pistol, submachine guns, shotguns, machine guns, assault rifles, and sniper rifles. There are automatic and semi-automatic weapons that each have a unique shooting pattern that has to be controlled by the player to be able to shoot accurately. Different agents allow players to find more ways to plant the Spike and style on enemies with scrappers, strategists, and hunters of every description.

In the main game mode, players are assigned to either the attacking or defending team with each team having five players on it. Agents have unique abilities, each requiring charges, as well as a unique ultimate ability that requires charging through kills, deaths, orbs, or objectives.

Graphics

Replayability

As a team-based first-person hero shooter, Valorant is a game that would be enjoyable to play over and over again.
