Some notable features in the game itself ressemble other popular gaming titles including CS:GO, Fortnite, Team Fortress 2 and Overwatch with varied aesthetic choices across the various maps including dragon statues and futuristic vehicles as part of their designs. 

Earlier leaks showed a character named 'Sentinal Sage' with abilities that ressemble the latter game's support champions Mercy and Moira. Within Valorant clips, we see her abilities in action as well as those of a still unrevealed champion in promotional material using floating knives that are then sent fatally towards enemy players.

Official information about Valorant is expected on 2nd March from Riot itself but the full IGN post including the screenshots can be found here.

Fans should keep their eyes on @PlayVALORANT for further news that is expected to drop at midnight PST.
