Riot's latest ripoff game. Was called Project A. Release Summer 2020.

A CS:GO / Overwatch / hero shooter hybrid. Mostly CS:GO, complete with buying economy and knife running, apparently.

Official site: https://playvalorant.com/

Original Project A announcement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iGU6PctOBg

Today's official gameplay preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8amyzDHOKw

Why would you play this instead of CS or Overwatch?

Mostly because it's a new eSport scene where everyone starts from scratch, so "land of opportunities".

Good chance for pros that aren't competitive in CS:GO or Overwatch to score some Riot money. While it might not end up being huge money, they'll probably do a lot better than Overwatch and the ship-to-iceberg collision that is the current state of Blizzard's eSports.

Plus, you might snag some younger viewers that don't want or are not allowed into the cyka bylat land of CS:GO but have been introduced to the style of gameplay by Fortnite. Yes, Fortnite added a CS:GO clone at end of the last season: my son loved it.

Looks like CS with an Overwatch skin. Why though?

CS:GO is still going strong so presumably Riot sees an opportunity to grab some of that market and mindshare with a clone.

I totally see why. I am a little surprised by your surprise. I am not interested in this, but I see why they did it.

because you want to support a game effectively managed by the Chinese government and refused the possibility of region locks, so that you can experience one out of three games ending with you getting aimbotted through walls

I realized yesterday the name of this game is Valor-ant, not Valo-rant.

The name is horribad, doesn't seem like the title and game match at all.

Also, the game looks to my untrained eye like counterstrike but with giant awful green blobs that completely obstruct your vision.
