Riot Games’ upcoming 5v5 shooter, Valorant, will feature a diverse cast of characters in the game. You will have a choice of the characters in the game, using their unique abilities to give you a tactical edge. However, at the end of the day, your precision with a gun matters far more than the power of a character’s ability.
There will be a diverse cast coming to Valorant when it releases this summer. They are hypernatural, unique agents hailing from all over the world. At this time, we do not have any concrete information about who the characters are, the lore of the game, or how their different abilities work. We do have a variety of concept art pieces with character names attached to them, but no additional information regarding these characters, or others coming to the game.
We do know every character you play has access to all of the guns. Players will dictate what type of guns they can use in the match based on an income economy, so communication is key. It also means if you like how a certain character meshes with your playstyle, you can modify their loadout to suit your team or any situation better.
The concept art of the characters list them with these names:
Because the characters have a variety of different backgrounds and come from all over the world, we can expect to see more added to this cast. When Valorant releases and the game’s competitive and fanbase grows, Riot Games may use player’s feedback to decide what the game needs to grow and come up with more unique abilities for them.
We’ll update this guide with descriptions and the abilities of the characters in Valorant in the future. Right now, we only have small bits of concept art to use as resources, for the time being, and they don’t tell us too much about the characters coming to the game.
