The battle royale game mode is extremely popular in FPS games these days, which is why it is featured in almost every major FPS title from Call of Duty to Fortnite and PUBG. Ever since the Valorant beta, we have speculated whether Riot Games will add it or not. Surely the game’s developers wouldn’t want to miss their opportunity to make Valorant even more popular. In this article, you will learn all there is to know about the battle royale mode and its possible future inclusion in the Valorant game.
Riot Games is supposedly testing a battle royale game mode for Valorant.
According to a tweet from @PlayerIGN on Twitter, a small group of players has been testing a battle royale game mode in Valorant.
Another leak from the latest Valorant patch update reveals some new files, along with traces of future changes that will be arriving in the coming months. Valorant data miners discovered the hidden files and leaked some crucial information about possible changes to the community.
It is not yet known if this will be a permanent game mode for a specific season.
However, we do know that data miners recently found new strings of code that could indicate some kind of snowball mode is coming to the game. If this information is confirmed, it is unlikely that Riot Games will add two additional game modes simultaneously, especially given the complexity of battle royale games. There is speculation that they could be working on a winter event that includes a snowball battle royal mode.
Valorant’s game director, Joe Ziegler, has previously talked about their plans to create a game mode that would relieve much of the stress from Valorant’s competitive mode. Currently, Valorant’s game modes are more like warm-up modes, and this is why the game is in dire need of a free battle royale mode similar to those in Fortnite or PUBG.
Another data-mine revealed that the ALT 6 game mode will have something like an orb collection race that is based on the best game mechanics of any popular sandbox battle royale game. A second data-mine hinted at a mode called ‘SiteRush’ that revolves around planting the Spike within a limited time frame. The fate of the Valorant battle royale game mode will be revealed soon in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more updates on our website. And let us know which game mode you would like to see next in Valorant in the comments below!
