Valorant Celebrates 1 Year With 14 Million Active Players

Published

on

Valorant was one of the riskiest bets Riot Games launched to market on June 2, 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic was in full swing. Moreover, this one risked becoming “another game” among many others.

But that didn’t happen, and since it was launched, Valorant has continued to grow steadily. Now that the first anniversary is celebrating, Riot Games has announced impressive numbers. They currently have over 14 million active players every month and have created over 500 million games to date.

Within a year, Valorant managed to take a leading position in this extremely competitive segment of the computer first-person shooter market. It was also recently confirmed that Riot Games intends to expand its player base by also releasing a smartphone version of Valorant.

Valorant is just getting started, Riot Games promises

According to one executive producer, Valorant is still in its infancy and has a lot to offer to the millions of active gamers. During the first year, his ultimate goal was to gain the trust and respect of the global FPS community (First person shooter), followed by many new features.

It’s safe to say that the goals for the first year have been met, and it is likely that Riot Games is already preparing a large roster of new products for its fans.

One of the company’s recent bets has been a massive investment in the creation and development of a competitive system for the Valorant community, which has grown noticeably in recent months.

Valorant Competition continues to grow both in terms of participation and in terms of the community looking to attend game sessions. For example, the final of the VCT: Masters Stage 2 tournament in Iceland between Sentinels and Fnatic was watched live by over 1 million users.

Artists unite and show the power of Unreal Engine 5 in a fantastic video

The new graphics engine from the creator of Epic Games is called Unreal Engine 5 and is currently the most popular in this segment. The latest information indicates that over 100 studios develop their games on this graphics platform, but we still have a lot to learn about its potential.

So now a group of artists have come together and created an amazing video demonstrating the full power of Unreal Engine 5. So come take a look and draw your own conclusions.


Powerful graphics engine Unreal Engine 5 from Epic Games

If you have heard about the new Unreal Engine 5 graphics engine, but have not yet fully understood what this tool is capable of, then you are reading the right article.

Quixel, a creative and 3D art product company, recently completed a project called "Ninety days in Unreal Engine 5". Basically, the idea was to invite some artists to create real-time environments over the course of a few days. The project has evolved, and last week the company presented the result of over 40 environments created in Unreal Engine 5 with powerful and incredible video.

Watch the video promoted by Quixel:

According to the company, "The Ninety Days project started with just three main artists and a simple concept: make something beautiful and inspiring, keep it in real time, and if possible create every environment in just three days."A few days later, other artists were invited to the project, even from Epic Games.

To accomplish this work, the artists took advantage of some of Quixel's tools, such as the Megascans library, to create high-quality content in a more efficient and easier way.

Quixel and Epic Games product strategist and lead artist Victor Oman noted that the project is very important in terms of learning, and even said that "I feel like I added more skills and tools to my resume during the Ninenta Diaz project than in the last five years of my career.".

For his part, Alec Tucker, Cinematic Environments Artist also at Quixel and Epic Games, said environment creation was fast and interactive thanks to Unreal Engine 5 and Quixel Megascans assets.

You can view all the images created for the project through the Unreal Engine 5 graphics engine. Here.

Kerbal Space Program 2 now kicks off in early 2023

The Kerbal 2 space program will remain on earth for some time to come. Developer Star Theory has delayed the release of the game until early 2023.

Creative director Nate Simpson explained on the project’s forums and in a video message that development of the space flight simulator has “enormous technological complexity” and the team needs more time to bring it to perfection. In the video posted below, Simpson clarifies by saying:

“We have also set very high quality standards. the game should [perform] for a wide range of vehicles. Graphics must be second to none. The universe should be rich and interesting to explore. We set ourselves an internal goal – to create an original and breathtaking experience.

Like its well-received predecessor, Kerbal Space Program 2 challenges players to manage a space program run by cute green astronauts to build rockets and other spacecraft for space exploration. The game uses realistic physics to allow players to perform realistic orbital maneuvers used to locate and land on celestial bodies. The sequel was first announced at Gamescom 2019 with a release window in 2020. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed development and forced the team to aim for Fall 2021 to arrive later this year.

Kerbal Space Program 2 is aimed at PC at launch, with console versions coming later in the year.

Unfortunately, Kerbal isn’t the only major game that has been pushed back to 2023. We recently compiled a list of all the best games of 2022 to avoid this year, which you can read here.
