Valorant looks to be a hardcore blend of Counter-Strikes structure and gunplay with the coordinated chaos of Overwatchs abilities and hero pool. The game will start with two teams of five squaring off against each other in combat for up to 24 rounds, and the game mode demoed to press and influencers appears to follow in Counter-Strikes footsteps, offering a bomb defusal scenario. We dont know if this is the only game mode in Valorant. If youre yet to play Counter-Strike, you may be familiar with Search and Destroy in Call of Duty, which is fairly similar in its side-swapping bomb defusal setup. Unlike Overwatch, you wont be able to swap characters between rounds to adapt to the opposing teams composition.
