They call for “developing a vision for combat in Valorant on consoles,” and also “designing and refining features, modes, and systems to help bring console products to market.”

All about the game
All those players who are able to go through the arduous learning period of Valorant will find an experience that will reward them with tense situations, with victories to celebrate as if they had won the Champions League and with defeats from which you can always take something to grow. as a player. It is a game as balanced and as well designed in terms of weapons and maps as the Valve shooter CSGO, if not more; but to which adds one more strategic layer with the agents, which entails more decisions, more differences between one game and the next, a higher ceiling as a player. For others, nothing prevents you from giving it a try, since it is free, but it is undeniable that the effort it asks for is not, by any means, for everyone.
