Valorant mobile release date
As far as the Valorant Mobile release date is concerned, Riot Games has not revealed an official date yet. However, according to data miners and rumours on the internet, Valorant Mobile is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2022. It was back in June 2020, that Riot Games first announced the development of Valorant Mobile. With popular games such as Pubg and COD in the market, Valorant will face a lot of competition on Android and iOS platforms.
The gameplay is likely to be similar to Valorant for PC. Other mobile games that are based on games for PC are also developed on similar control schematics. For instance, Pubg: Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile resemble their PC versions. In Valorant’s Mobile version, each player will play as an agent with special powers to attack or defend. As of now, there are a total of 15 agents in the game. Riot Games might offer new maps and agents while launching their popular game for Android and iOS.
