VALORANT is a brand-new first-person shooter from Riot Games. As the company seeks to expand beyond League of Legends, they're exploring new genres and bringing their development style to the FPS genre.
Blending first-person shooting with fantastical powers, this game takes team shooters in a new direction. Not only will players have to carefully position themselves for the best shots — they'll also have to make use of their fantastical powers to get an edge in combat.
Here’s what we think it takes for you to trust a game enough to invest: 128-tick servers, at least 30 frames per second on most min-spec computers (even dating back a decade), 60 to 144+ FPS on modern gaming rigs, a global spread of datacenters aimed at <35ms for players in major cities around the world, a netcode we’ve been obsessing over for years, and a commitment to anti-cheat from day one.
Shooting in VALORANT is precise, consequential, and highly-lethal - we want you to win on your skill and strategy alone.
*latency is always impacted by a combination of your ISP routing, your internet connection, and what’s downloading in the background. We’re bringing servers everywhere but can’t guarantee we’ll be everywhere, ya know?
...BUT CREATIVITY IS YOUR GREATEST WEAPON
Imagine this: tactical shooter meets hypernatural powers. Everyone’s got guns and a unique set of abilities, so how do you beat someone with the speed of wind? Use your own moves to outplay them and beat them to the shot. VALORANT is a game for bold strategists who dare to make the unexpected play, because if it wins, it works.
