10 AGENTS AT VALORANT’S LAUNCH23 / 03 / 20
Now we know where microtransactions in Valorant will appear. Riot has been pointing out that additional payments that we will see in the game are not going to affect gameplay in any way. So far we only heard about cosmetics items that will be possible to buy for real money.
5 AGENTS FOR FREE AND 5 MORE TO BUY OR UNLOCK
Meanwhile in the interview with IGN, Riot Games informed us that only 5 of all 10 agents will be unlocked for all players at the release. Rest of them we will have to parchuse or unlock by playing the game.
Until now we have thought that there will be 12 agents at the launch, however those plans are changing rapidly. Today we know that this number got reduced to 10 while only half will be available immediately. We don’t know which ones exactly.
We have been promised that Valorant will not have pay-to-win system. However, in game characters can give you an advantage over your opponents, it’s more than just a weapon skin or sticker. The good news is that you don’t have to pay for agents to get them. Let’s hope that agents will be relatively easy to unlock by simply playing and buying them will be more optional than necessary.
