Riot trust Valorant’s anti-cheat so much, they’ll pay big bucks for exposing flaws

For Valorant, Riot's new Counter-Strike-with-Superpowers FPS, regular anti-cheat was never gonna cut it. From the beginning, they've been flaunting the shooter's technical guts - 128-tick servers, flawless ping, and an anti-cheat system that makes it "impossible for a player to cheat in game-defying ways".

Valorant key-sellers and bots get the boot to free up beta slots

No, the buying round hasn't started yet. Riot's new Counter-Strike-with-superpowers shooter Valorant kicked off its closed beta yesterday and, suffice to say, a few people wanted in. A couple dozen, really. Few thousand, tops. Million? Oh.

Riot’s new game Valorant is already breaking Fortnite’s records

There are currently 1.7 million people watching Valorant on Twitch, which means it's matched the game streaming platform's all-time record for the number of people watching a single game at the same time.

Maybe people are watching because they're excited for a…

Riot Games, the gang behind League Of Legends, today gave the big reveal-o to their mysterious multiplayer shooter formerly known as Project A - their one upcoming game not based on League. Valorant is its name, and 'Counter-Strike meets Overwatch' is its game. A reductive comparison, sure, but an unavoidable one after Riot released a gameplay video showing one full round. Valorant will launch free-to-play…
