Following the global launch nearly a month ago, Valorant has found a thriving community, and with it, players who will always ask questions on what’s next for the game in terms of updates and content.
Valorant executive producer Anna Donlon shares their plans for the players and what they have in store for everybody post-launch:
Ranked mode is now available and some quality of life improvements like early surrender, remake matches, and timeouts, which are all highly requested features from the players themselves.
The next topic talks about “Episodes and Acts”, outlining that Episodes are meant to last 6 months while there will ideally be 3 Acts per episode, lasting about 2 months each. Each act will introduce a new agent and every year, a total of 6 agents will be added to the roster pool. Expect a major feature to be released like a new map or a new game mode during the start of episodes.
Some of the story developments will also be done through these episodes and acts, as well as a new battle pass per act, all in the aim of keeping the players occupied with content to grind for.
Disruptive behavior will also be a top focus for the team to make Valorant a better place to play. Keep reporting any untoward behavior and you can be assured that the team will bring the hammer down.
Valorant is off to a good start and it helps that the team is being transparent and receptive to player feedback and comments. Expect more updates soon!
