Valorant Mobile Release Date

Valorant mobile is already in the early phases of development. Riot Games hopes to give gamers a new experience than Valorant PC, rather than just a copy of the FPS game’s mobile version.

As a result, it may be a while before the game is released on mobile, with Donlon hoping for a decent build “in year two”. The developers haven’t shared much about how Valorant will play on mobile, other than the fact that cross-play between the PC and mobile versions isn’t planned.

Valorant’s ‘Agents’ and their abilities

Rather than directing a SWAT/SEAL unit or a group of terrorists as in Counter-Strike, Valorant players lead Agents. Before a game begins, each individual can choose their agent and should therefore play with that particular agent. The game’s agents have a variety of distinct abilities and skills.  These abilities might be offensive, defensive, or tactical and are unique for every agent.

Different than PUBG Mobile and COD Mobile?

Valorant is a 5v5 character tactical FPS, not a battle royale. It’s a multiplayer shooter. Players will spawn once for each round on opposite sides of a map, starting the game with the same weapon. Not like other battle royal games where you drop on an island and left there to fight for yourself.

In every round, progress is gained by completing the team’s goal of attacking or defending, or killing all of the opposing team’s players. There is no vast island or continually shrinking play zone, unlike PUBG or Call of Duty Mobile’s battle royale mode.
