A new preview trailer showcasing the title’s gameplay has been released as well. The video above feature’s the game’s approaching to online shooters, with players choosing a loadout and a position to defend on the map like a Bomb Defuse mode in an FPS. Although the playable Agent characters use magical-based abilities, gameplay is mostly focused on the contrarily straight-forward gunplay. For example, Jett throws out vision-obscuring Cloudburst fog and Brimstone requests Stim Beacons that give nearby players rapid fire.
Four maps will arrive day one and matches are set to take roughly 30 minutes or more. Interestingly, before mentioning the specifics of gameplay, Valorant‘s official site talks about howit’s trying to make the game a smooth, responsive experience for all players: “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.”
Riot says Valorant will debut in Summer 2020, but there are no details on whether it’ll be a limited beta or a full-scale release.
In other gaming news, the demo for Final Fantasy VII Remake is available now.
