In a bid to make all of the video games in the known universe, Riot Games is juggling several major projects right now. Its new first-person shooter, Valorant, was only officially revealed earlier this month — and now it is going into closed beta testing next week.
The 5v5 team shooter is scheduled to kick off its beta in North America and Europe on April 7th: “For now, space is limited to players in Europe, Canada, United States, Turkey, Russia and CIS countries. The plan is to roll out to more regions, if possible, pending the volatile logistics of launching a beta effectively during a global pandemic.”
If digital card games are more your thing, then you’re probably more in tune with Riot’s Legends of Runeterra. This title is in open beta and just received the gift of Patch 0.9.3, which is making a few strong changes to the economy in order to give players more flexibility. “We’re adding more agency to your progression: a champion wildcard each week from a vault that can now level up infinitely, no daily XP cap, and unlimited direct purchase of any card, among other things,” the studio said.
