The Valorant game developer has announced a new playable character– Harbor! Here is our first look at this character in Valorant Harbor Guide.

Developed and published by Riot Games, Valorant is a free-to-play action shooter game. Based on the Counter-Strike series of tactical shooters, the game takes inspiration from those games. 

The Valorant game, which takes place in the distant future, is a first-person shooter where players work together as a team. It is a role-playing game in which players are selected from a variety of agents based on different countries and cultures from around the world. There are basically two modes of play: attacking and defending.

In addition, each agent has an ultimate ability that requires charging through kills, deaths, orbs, or objectives in order to work.
