Valorant, the 5v5 tactical shooter from Riot Games launched last year on PC and it has grown to currently average 14 million players each month. Today, Riot Games reveals that Valorant is coming to mobile as Valorant Mobile. Valorant Mobile has been rumoured for a while now with code for mobile found in the PC client and also hints about a mobile version in different regions. The announcement from Riot Games today isn’t really surprising given how much the company is doing for mobile with League of Legends: Wild Rift, Legends of Runeterra, and Teamfight Tactics already. Riot Games claims (via The Verge) that the company is preparing to expand the franchise to bring it to more players around the world. Watch the Valorant trailer below:
As of now, there aren’t any details available about Valorant Mobile barring the fact that it has officially been announced. A release window and platform-specific details are yet to be revealed. It is possible that Valorant Mobile will be showcased at a future Apple event given how much time was given to Wild Rift before. Valorant’s character designs and the aesthetic in general for all artwork have been great and I’m interested to see how it translates to mobile with its fast-paced gameplay. Hopefully there’s cross platform support in some form but again, no details are available for anything barring the fact that Valorant Mobile is now official. Have you played Valorant on PC yet and what would you like to see in Valorant Mobile?
