Riot Games today celebrates the 1st anniversary of VALORANT, announcing an average of more than 14 million PC players from around the world logging on each month to play the Free-To-Play FPS video game that launched solely on the PC platform only one year ago on June 2, 2020. After a record-breaking closed beta debut and successful global launch, VALORANT quickly established itself as a global fan-favorite, emerging as one of the most prominent FPS games available on PC.
Over the game’s first year, VALORANT players competed in over half a billion games of the team-based shooter. With enthusiasm for VALORANT only continuing to grow, Riot now is preparing to expand the franchise – starting with VALORANT Mobile – in order to bring VALORANT to more players around the world.
In honor of VALORANT’s year-one milestone, Riot will host a month-long celebration for VALORANT players and fans, gifting members of the community in-game rewards and initiatives. Throughout the month of June, the VALORANT community will receive commemorative digital swag, including a redeemable player card and a free event pass, to mark the occasion.
