The official Valorant Twitter account released a short teaser today showing off a new character coming to the game. Her name is Reyna and she reminds of someone...

Reyna is from Mexico and after teasing the character recently, Riot showed off about 30 seconds of gameplay in a small video. The video also seems to give a peek at a new map that will most likely be released when the game officially launches for everyone on June 2. Expect Reyna to be playable around that same time too.


Valorant has been in closed beta for a few weeks now and caused a whole kerfuffle over on Twitch as players watched hours of streams hoping to gain access to the popular beta. This led to a lot of anger and confusion. But soon anyone will be able to play Valorant and can instead yell online about balance changes and updates.

Serious question to anyone who plays this: what genre hole is this game targeted to fill? It seems sort of like a slightly upgraded sci-fi Counterstrike, but moves a whole lot slower than Paladins/Overwatch. Is this a legitimate evolution of the genre or just a hat in the ring? As someone who hasn’t had a shot at playing it, the videos thus far haven’t really captured my imagination.
