Now and then we get to experience a new game release that shakes things up in the esports industry. We recently got to experience one of those moments, with Riot Games releasing the beta version of the studio’s first new game in over a decade, a first-person shooter named Valorant.
With this new game, the League of Legends creators have managed to combine features and game elements normally separated between different game genres.
This innovative approach seems to have resonated well with esports players and community. Earlier this year, the game’s closed beta release hit a new viewer record on Twitch, with 1.7 million spectators watching the game live.
No official release date has been confirmed yet, but the studio plans to release it sometime during this summer.
Esports company Epulze, together with Prodigy Agency, are honored to be among the first to organize a VALORANT tournament of this scale. The tournament will be broadcasted from a studio with Zescht and other well-known casters.
