What is Valorant and how do I get started?

VALORANT is a free-to-play tactical first-person shooter (FPS) published by Riot Games on June 2nd, 2020

Taking inspiration from other popular shooters, Valorant delivers a gameplay blending tactical gunplay (as seen in Counter-Strike) and unique ability skillsets (as seen in Overwatch) where two teams of five players battle each other.

Players take on the role of one of 19 several ‘Agents’. Agents have special powers that require charges and a unique ultimate ability that requires charging by kills, deaths, orbs, or objectives. Each Agent has a unique skillset and playstyle conforming to one of Valorant’s four archetypes: Sentinel, Duelist, Controller, and Initiator.
