VALORANT: Going cross-platform

Share This Post

It is no surprise that VALORANT is coming to mobile and players are anxiously awaiting its release. What is surprising is that Riot Games is allegedly also working on bringing the popular first-person shooter game to consoles.

On the Hitmarker website, Riot Games have recently posted two job listings, one for a Game Design Manager (Console) position and another for a Senior Game Designer (Console) position.

The description of the Senior Game Designer role states that they have to “design and refine features, modes, and systems to help bring console game products to market,” while the responsibilities of the Game Design Manager include “(working) with team leads to develop a vision for combat in VALORANT on Consoles”.

The game developer has yet to release an official statement but the job listings say a lot on their own already; VALORANT, what used to be a PC exclusive, is expanding to other platforms like mobile and consoles.

This is definitely a step in the right direction as other first-person shooter games – like Overwatch 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II – already have cross-play and cross-progression.

Players can play across different devices and have their data synced between them. They can also play against other players on different devices, which is something VALORANT has yet to implement, until now.

The new developments will certainly attract new players to the game and make current players more excited to play.

Meme Monday: Lighten(ing) your mood with these Neon memes

It’s been a few weeks since the release of Valorant’s newest agent, Neon, and she’s been a blast to play with (and against.) Naturally, a character as fun as Neon will breed memes equally as electrifying. Here are some Neon memes that are guaranteed to strike your funny bone.

Meme Monday: You’ve seen the Spider-Verse, now get ready for the Riot-Verse

It’s only midway through January and Riot is already treating us well with the release of two new characters: Neon from Valorant and Zeri from League of Legends (LOL). Even better, Neon is canonically Filipino, a huge win for Southeast Asian gamers! But we, like the rest of the internet, are seeing double – Neon and Zeri are practically the same person. Case in point: They are voiced by the same Filipino voice actress, have very similar abilities and look basically identical. We can’t help but think that Riot is trying to hint at something…a Riot multiverse, perhaps? It won’t be too far-fetched, since crossovers between both games have happened and Valorant’s storyline literally revolves around a second Earth from another universe. Alright, that’s enough speculation. This Meme Monday, we bring you PROOF of the Riot-Verse. Well, kinda.

Behold the multiverse theory! Neon and Zeri: one and the same?

The term ‘multiverse’ has been thrown left and right a lot lately. It’s been the talk of the town. While most have heard about this from the ever-growing Marvel franchise, gamers have noticed a similar happening in the esports scene.

I am Female. I AM also ESPORTS!

Firstly, yes, I am female. Yes, I have a masculine name. I love playing FPS games, especially team based ones like Overwatch and Valorant, which often require team communication in order to win. However, I rarely talk. Why? Because I am female. Just look up videos talking about or showing the female gaming experience on YouTube and you’ll know exactly why. Rude remarks, people making a big fuss just because I sound like a girl and people blaming me for doing badly solely because of my gender and not because of my lack of skill. The list goes on.

2021 was a bit of a Riot, will it continue?

As we make our first steps into 2022, we look back at 2021 as Riot Games managed to keep us sane during tough times. Eat your heart out Blizzard-Activision because Riot Games are coming up with new things one game at a time while you only rely on nostalgia trips and scrape the bottom of the barrel.

Shooting for the top: Ultiasia’s best 5 FPS games in 2021

From gaming’s early, experimental days (think Doom 1993) to gaming becoming a multi billion dollar industry today, first-person shooter (FPS) games have always been a popular staple.

As we usher in the new year, let’s look back at what FPS games have impacted us the most in 2021.
