Riot Games Shares Impressive VALORANT Cinematic Trailer as Hero Shooter Releases Today

An action-packed cinematic launch trailer for Riot Games' Valorant has been shared online, as the League of Legends studio's highly popular answer to Overwatch and LawBreakers (RIP) is making its big debut today.

For those unfamiliar with Valorant (although every fan of multiplayer titles has probably already heard about the title), it's a new hero shooter in the same vein as the aforementioned games and Battleborn (RIP as well).

Valorant is a free-to-play project, and to play it you only need to go to the Valorant website and download the game's client at no additional charge. Those who have been enjoying the production since its closed beta should be happy to hear that a new Mexican character — Reyna — is also joining the roster today.

That's not all, as a never-before-seen map — Ascent — is coming to the ever-evolving Valorant as part of the full game's first free update. According to Riot, the shooter's fourth map is set in Italy and features a large, "open middle area that both teams can skirmish over. Mid is a playground for diverse ability use and successfully controlling the area opens additional routes for Attackers to both Spike sites."

Without further ado, take a closer look at Valorant's cinematic and gameplay launch trailers down below:

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.

Valorant is now available on PC.
