Valorant is one of the most-played battle royale games from the house of Riot Games. If you are someone who hasn’t played League of Legends, Teamfight Tactics, or Legends of Runeterra, and wants to try out Valorant, you’ll first require a Riot account. It is a universal account where players can log in to any title from Riot games.
Once you’ve created a Riot account, you’ll automatically be assigned to your region. For instance, if a player creates an account with a North American IP, they’ll be locked to the NA servers. To download the game and start playing, visit Roit’s official website, and search for “play free.” Select the big red button, and you’ll be redirected to a page where you can download Valorant and start playing.
Once you’ve downloaded the game, open the client by clicking on the Valorant icon and sign in with your Riot account to start playing the game. After logging for the first time, you’ll be introduced to the game with a brief tutorial where you can learn about Valorant’s objectives, alter settings as per your preference, and experiment with the crosshair.
Once you are done with the complete process, you can move forward and start playing the game. As of now, Valorant offers seven different maps, where players can battle it out with their opponents. Valorant has the Bind map that is located in Rabat, Morocco. Its beta came out on April 7, 2020. Bind features teleporters that let players rotate from one point to another and vice versa.
Haven is another map that is located in Thimphu, Bhutan, and was released on April 7, 2020. It is the game’s only three-map bomb site, which makes it an interesting map to play for both attackers and defenders. Haven is set in a monastery in Bhutan, with the central shrine marking the B bomb site.
You can play in the Split map that is set in Tokyo, Japan, and was rolled out on April 7, 2020. It is set at a high-speed railway station and packs several verticality and ziplines that make it difficult for attackers.
