It was on 2nd June of 2020 when Valorant released as a free-to-play multiplayer first-person shooter game.
Now, fast forward to today, Valorant completely stole the spotlight away from shooting games like Overwatch, Apex Legends, or even League of Legends by Riot Games.
Within a few weeks of its worldwide release, it has attracted a substantial number of players to their game. As a result of this, Valorant is creating buzz all around the gaming circuit and has enabled monetization through in-game revenues.
Because of its fresh new enthusiast driven FPS gaming system, Valorant is pulling away players, online streamers, influencers, and new esports leagues from CS: GO.
In fact, right after its release, Valorant entered into the list of June’s 10 best-earning pc games right behind billion-dollar gaming giant Roblox.
Just like any other game, Valorant has some bugs and issues. In fact, recently several users reported an error with error code 57.
