Valorant is an upcoming free-to-play competitive 5v5 character-based tactical first-person shooter video game developed by Riot Games. It is the first game Riot Games has developed in the genre. The game was first announced with the codename Project A in October 2019. It is set to be released on PC with no console ports confirmed at this time. Riot Games has announced that a closed beta will be available to play from April 7th. Although they have not mentioned till when is it going to be available to download. The beta version would be available to download first in Canada, Europe, Russia, Turkey, and the United States. Valorant's executive producer Anna Donlon has stated that, the limited number of regions is due to the ongoing pandemic. The game is set on a near-future Earth, where players can choose from al cast of agents, all hailing from real-world locations. These agents boast unique abilities that they can use to gather information, fortify locations, scout for enemy intel, breach defensive sites, control territory, and more. Riot Games invested in an unprecedented, best-in-class technical back-end to support the game, including: dedicated 128-tick servers for all global players and promises to deliver; a custom-built netcode in pursuit of precise hit registration; server authoritative game architecture and proprietary anti-cheat prevention and detection from day one.

“Our plan was to bring the Valorant closed beta to as many players around the world as quickly as possible, but the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted those plans, compromising a wider global rollout,” she said in a statement. “For now, we have to focus on the regions where we feel most ready, with more regions following in the months to come.”
