Just when the players thought Riot Games had no more surprises for Valorant in March, they went ahead and announced a spinoff dating game for their tactical shooter.
This simulator will be an extension of the existing Valorant, a universe where players can take on the role of recruits who are training to become Valorant Agents.
Valorant: Agents of Romance will be Riot Games' first full-fledged game in the dating sim genre. The idea for a spinoff came on the back of their other IP success, League of Legends, with their Spirit Blossom event.
The Spirit Blossom event does feature various components of the dating simulator that fans are really active in.
It's no surprise that the release of Valorant has created many Sage, Jett, and Viper simps among a dedicated player base. Many shooter fans love this Agent, and Riot feels that they have to do something special for them, for the amount of love and respect they show towards the game characters.
Valorant: Agents of Romance to arrive on PC in 2021
The dating simulator Valorant will get its official launch for PC in 2021. The story will revolve around recruits who train to become full-fledged agents and go through tough and turbulent lives.
Players will be tasked with building meaningful relationships with each of the Valorant Agents by collecting items, dating, and even saving the world from the brink of destruction, only to win the heart of the Agent they love the most.
Speaking about the game, Ana Donlon, Executive producer of Valorant, stated:
“We’ve been looking into ways to expand and explore the Valorant universe, even prior to launch, and when we landed on a dating sim, it just made sense. We believe that everyone can relate to and enjoy the Agents of Valorant, whether they’re tac-shooter players or dating sim players.”
Joe Ziegler, Game Director of Valorant and Valorant: Agents of Romance, also commented on the thought process behind the production of the dating sim:
“It’s kind of funny. At first, we wanted to launch Agents of Romance as a game mode in VALORANT, but it started to take on a life of its own. I don’t remember who suggested it, but at some point, we just said, ‘Screw it. Let’s make this a whole game.’”
Valorant: Agents of Romance is sure to make a big splash in the shooter fan base, and players are looking forward to its launch sometime soon in 2021.
