Valorant map Split is no longer an attackers’ nightmare

Do you ever play Valorant and just do a little sigh when you see what map has been picked from the pool for your next match? For me, that's Split (and also Icebox actually, but this post isn't about that freezy fiend). Split's always been a tough one for attackers, with its annoyingly tight choke points you'd need to funnel down, and far too many…

Valorant’s new teleporting wizard Yoru arrives today

Riot Games are dropping a sneaky new character into Valorant later tonight. His name is Yoru, and not only can he go invisible, but he can fake the sound of teammates' footsteps and teleport to get the drop on everyone. He sounds like a lot of fun to play, and a lot less fun to play against. He's arriving with the tactical shooter's second Episode,…

Riot and Bungie join forces to sue Valorant and Destiny 2 cheatmakers

Riot Games and Bungie have teamed up to sue a pesky cheatmaker who's been selling hacks for their games, Valorant and Destiny 2 (amongst others). In a joint lawsuit filed by the companies on Friday, they accuse GatorCheats of selling and distributing "malicious software products designed to enable members of the public to gain unfair competitive advantage."

Valorant’s stealthy new agent Yoru arrives next week

It looks like the leak was right: Valorant's next agent is a tricksy teleporter named Yoru. The character was unofficially revealed by a Russian YouTube channel earlier this week, but now Riot Games have made him official. Edgy lad Yoru is set to debut in the tactical FPS next week on January 12th, which just so happens to be the start date of the game's…

The big ticket is four new champions coming throughout the year, kicking off with the Ruined King himself this month. Down the line, three other new champions will join the game as well, though their identities are still a bit of a secret.

This Korean horror show using Imagine Dragons is killing me

Over the hols I started watching Sweet Home, a new Korean horror series on Netflix about an apartment block's residents trapped inside while people mysteriously mutate into monsters. Seems pretty fun so far. Has some awful monsters, and definitely a character or two I like. AND THEN every time our heroes fight back, I fall about dying, just dying, positively dying, screaming with death, absolutely…

Well, according to a Russian leak, a new character is on the way. It looks like Agent 14 will be a new sneaky teleporting lad named Yoru, who can fake footsteps and turn himself completely invisible. I already…

Riot announce League Of Legends MMO‚Ķ in a tweet to a fan

Last night, my Twitter feed was all abuzz about Riot Games announcing a League Of Legends MMO. However, this excitement didn't come from the reveal itself, but more the way it was it was revealed. There was no big marketing ploy or tantalising teaser trailer, nope - a Riot executive just casually tweeted it out. I bet their PR department are having a field day.

Valorant’s Snowball Fight is the sort of chilled-out mode it needed

Some days, you just wanna play a bit of Valorant, you know? But occasionally you're a bit too tired or not in the mood for the tense competitive matches Riot Games' tactical FPS typically has on offer. Which is why the new winter mode is great. Yesterday, Valorant introduced the limited-time Snowball Fight, and I think running around pelting people with snow is exactly the…

Valorant’s first holiday event is a snowball fight with knives

On December 15th, Valorant will see its first ever Christmas update, and what better way to celebrate than to pelt your pals with snowballs in a new limited-time game mode. Of course, no snowball fight is complete without a grenade launcher and knives, right? In Valorant's Snowball Fight, you'll be loading up some snowy doom into a rigged molotov launcher, and you'll have your trusty…

PSA: don’t play Valorant while waiting for banana bread to bake

"Lads, let's wrap this up. I've got banana bread in the oven." Words I foolishly typed into the text chat of my Valorant match to inform my teammates that I did not have time to mess about - I had baked goods at stake. I made many mistakes on Sunday. The first was thinking I could get in a quick round of Riot's tactical FPS…

League Of Legends devs deny Seraphine is based on a real person

The latest wizard in League Of Legends is Seraphine, a pink-haired pop star who has also sang with League's out-of-fiction virtual girl group, K/DA. Yesterday, a woman named Stephanie alleged that the character is based on her, and she's not happy about it. She says she had briefly dated a Riot employee who sure gave the impression that she might play some part in the…

LoL’s virtual girl group K/DA have an EP out

The best thing League Of Legends has done in years is create a virtual girl group, who now have a whole EP out. After years of ha-ha-hilariously cheesy promotional songs like Warriors with Imagine Dragons, Riot's music team unexpectedly hit the big time in 2018 with K/DA, a group with real singers in the digital bodies of pop-ified alternate reality versions of League characters. K/DA's…

League Of Legends RPG spin-off Ruined King arrives next year

Much as Riot might like to think otherwise, a MOBA just ain't the best place to show off your sprawling lore. It's just hard to care about my wizard's tragic past when I'm trying to hold mid. That's where Ruined King: A League Of Legends Story comes in, a singleplayer turn-based RPG that'll let you linger and explore Runeterra's fantasy scenarios outside the brutal confines…

Riot rewind today’s “technical nightmare” of a Valorant update

Well, that didn't stick. Earlier today, Valorant began rolling out version 1.11, adding animal-yeeting Aussie hero Skye and a frosty new Icebox map. But following a host of bizarre hiccups, it now looks like Riot have decided to slam the pause button, calling the update a "technical nightmare" and delaying the update's proper arrival 'til later this week.

Australian healer Skye will not just treat your wounds, but she'll throw various animals at your enemies to blind and stall them while she's at it.

Valorant’s new agent is a healer who throws animals at her enemies

It looks like Valorant is getting a new healer that might take some of the pressure off of all you Sage mains this month. Last night, Riot Games gave us our first proper look at the upcoming agent, Skye. Her kit comes with a big old area heal, as well as various animals she can throw at people to blind them, and she's arriving in…
