Valorant Mobile Gameplay: What’s Different?
Creating a similar Valorant world akin to the PC version of the game on mobile devices is indeed a challenging task. Still, the developers confirmed that they would put efforts into making the mobile version of the Valorant offer similar gameplay across most if not all of the handheld devices.
A year ago, the game’s initial release on the PC platform offered almost half of the Valorant Agents and Maps compared to the sixteen unique agents and six maps available presently. Thus, expecting the mobile Valorant game to provide the whole razzle-dazzle right away will be not logical.
Still, the emphasis will remain on delivering a near-identical core gameplay experience with a handful of agents available at the launch time. Yet, which agents will make it into the list is another mystery for now.
Another crucial thing to note will be that replicating the exact Valorant environment to the mobile devices will not be possible for reasons like lack of dedicated controllers. However, the valorant mobile version should follow suit how Riot Games Inc. brought League of Legends to the mobile platform. Initially, the latter game offered a few agents and gradually added the agents and features over time.
