Riot Games is best known for the success of the MOBA title, League of Legends. However, last year it was clear that the studio was looking to branch out by developing other unique titles. One of them was an FPS that would be free-to-play called Project A. Since that announcement, we now know that the title of the game is Valorant and it's coming sooner than some may have anticipated. Valorant will arrive this summer, but we don't have an exact release date yet.
Valorant will bring two game styles to the title. Riot Games takes heroes like Overwatch and mixes it with intense FPS like Counter Strike. The first item will apparently not be as attention-focused, as matches can take several turns and abilities can take several turns to recharge. As a result, the focus is more on accuracy with the gunplay.
There is a lot of anticipation for this game and now it has been revealed that the game will see a release this summer. We don't have a specific release date attached to the project yet, as Riot Games holds multiple betas to help flesh out any areas they might need after hearing player response.
If this game has a great beta, we could see the title release in the early summer months. That said, we don't know when the betas will take place or if they will be open to everyone. At the very least, we know the game is coming soon, so for now, we can enjoy some footage released for the title while we wait for the official beta announcement.
