Valorant had taken the competitive FPS-genre by storm when it was released by Riot Games last year. Surpassing the likes of games like CS:GO, the game has grown several folds over the months.

Riot Games has a long roadmap for the game, with new operators, maps, and a lot more slated to arrive in the game. Recently, the developers released the new operator Astra in the game, as part of the Episode 2 Act 2 update.
