Multiplayer FPS Game 'Valorant' Is Now Available To Play For Free

Valorant is a free-to-play multiplayer FPS game developed and published by Riot Games, the studio that gave us League of Legends. Valorant was in closed Beta for quite a while, and even then, it had almost 3 million players. The game is already one of the most-watched games on streaming platforms like Twitch.

Now, Valorant is finally out of closed beta and is available for everyone to play for free. However, the multiplayer first-person shooter game is out only for Microsoft Windows.

In Valorant, two teams of five players go against each other to be the last one standing. Just like Apex Legends and Crucible, Valorant also introduces players with different playable characters. In total, there are 11 different characters called Agents. Every playable character comes with unique abilities, thus making the gameplay more intense and challenging.
