Valorant Game Details

Developed and published by the makers of the popular MOBA game League of Legends, Valorant has celebrated its one year anniversary since release and the game has already hit a playerbase of 14 million active players.

A tactical first-person shooter by nature, Valorant has often drawn comparisons to both CS:GO and Overwatch; the gameplay and tactics being similar to CS and the colourful characters and action that comes as a result of their unique abilities being similar to Overwatch.

But Valorant is its own game and has been sporting some tremendous numbers since its debut. It had an astronomical launch fuelled by enormous amounts of hype and it feels like the game has not disappointed ever since.

After all, when you have a giant like Riot Games behind you as both the brains and beauty of the operation, it feels like success is nothing but the only option. I have spoken about my thoughts on Riot as a company before and it seems as if nowadays they just keep on going from strength to strength. 

Valorant Agent Abilities

The characters or Agents in Valorant play an important role in pushing the narrative forward and the attraction to play the game as not only do they serve as the playable characters but they also constitute the storyline and lore of the game. 

Each Agent is unique not only due to their abilities but also in their look, personality and where they are from. Each Agent hails from a different country on Earth and this is an excellent way for players to relate to a particular character, a hidden marketing tool from the developers no doubt.

With the personification of these characters, Riot’s potential to promote the game is even greater as marketing via cinematic videos and more can be made to bolster this growing storyline that is Valorant’s lore – and they have not disappointed with the animations.

Let’s take the official trailer for Valorant’s lore, for example.

The narrative being promoted here is that Valorant is more than just a game but also a community and another world that players can become attached to, just like anybody else would with a particular movie, book or TV series.

But enough about all that here is a list of all of the available Agents in the game right now as well as their abilities and the country that they hail from. There are 18 Agents in total.
