All you need to know about Ignition, Valorant's first season

After a closed beta phase that lasted almost two months, it's time for Valorant to reveal itself to the world. The game quickly became a phenomenon in the esport community and its launch date was expected to be like the messiah. It's since June 2 that FPS fans can compete on the latest game from Riot Games.

This launch is joined by the very first season of the game entitled Ignition. New agent, new map but also a brand new game mode, the developers spoil us and here is all the information you need to know before launching Valorant.

Work in progress

We're currently working on all the content additions and new features brought by Valorant Season 1. We'll regularly update this article in order to provide you with all the necessary information regarding Ignition.

It was on June 2 at 5AM PT / 7AM ET that the American servers opened their doors. No more need for specific access to fully enjoy the latest game from Riot Games, which is now available free-to-play on PC only.

We already knew that Valorant was officially due to be released on June 2, but we didn't know the exact time. Now Riot Games has just revealed that the North Amercan servers will open at 5AM PT / 7AM ET.

Reyna, the dreaded soul poacher

Valorant's eleventh agent will be a woman with very special methods, to say the least. Reyna has the power to retrieve soul orbs from the corpses of her opponents in order to heal herself. A strong agent but complicated to handle, she could become an important character at a high level.

Reyna is the eleventh agent available in Valorant since the official release of the game. The sulfurous Mexican mercenary can heal herself thanks to orbs she collects from the corpses of her enemies. Unconventional but effective methods!

Ascent, Riot Games version of the City of the Doges

Many leaks had more or less already put us on this track before the publisher itself confirmed it. The fourth map of Valorant will be called Ascent and will be a futuristic and "riotized" version of Venice. At first glance, it looks more like Split and favors verticality.

Spike Rush, an arcade mode that promises to be fun

After many rumors, we finally know the new Valorant game mode. It's not a Deathmatch as Jared Berbach, Riot Games FPS Product Manager, told us earlier. Spike Rush is based on speed and a whole new use of power orbs.
