Valorant Dating Sim Details
Agents of Romance will be Riot Games’ first full game in the dating sim genre. This is following the success of League of Legends’ Spirit Blossom event, which featured dating sim components that delighted fans around the world.
The new title will puts the player in the shoes of a new recruit training to be a Valorant Agent. As the Agent in Training, players will experience token Dating Sim gameplay such as “hanging out” and collecting items. Riot also teased “saving the world”, but hey, this may all be an elaborate (and sick) April Fools joke.
A Moment With Valorant Devs
The production and development team behind “Agents of Romance” had this to say regarding the project:
“We’ve been looking into ways to expand and explore the VALORANT universe, even prior to launch, and when we landed on a dating sim, it just made sense,” said Anna Donlon, Executive Producer of VALORANT. “We believe that everyone can relate to and enjoy the Agents of VALORANT, whether they’re tac-shooter players or dating sim players.”
“Our Agents are living, breathing individuals that are as expressive as our players,” says Joe Killeen, Narrative Writer on both VALORANT and VALORANT: Agents of Romance. “Agents of Romance allows us to put those inner emotions and human connections front and center, and we can explore who these individuals are when the uniform is off and the guns are stored away.”
“It’s kind of funny. At first, we wanted to launch Agents of Romance as a game mode in VALORANT, but it started to take on a life of its own,” said Joe Ziegler, Game Director of VALORANT and VALORANT: Agents of Romance. “I don’t remember who suggested it, but at some point we just said, ‘Screw it. Let’s make this a whole game.’”
Twitterians Are Finding Easter Eggs
It’s not uncommon for the development team to scatter Easter Eggs regarding new content. Agents Yoru and Astra have both had their abilities teased through various means. This time, we’re getting Twitter postings of love themed artifacts.
