The Daily Moot: Valorant Launch Announced

News Picks

1. Valorant Release Date

The release date for Valorant has finally been announced! After an extremely successful, record-breaking closed beta period, Valorant is now ready for its official launch. In less than 2 weeks from today, on June 2, Valorant will go live for players across the globe. The closed beta period will wrap on May 28, after which the game will go offline, resetting every player’s progress in preparation for June 2. Riot is also adding a handful of new servers prior to launch to ensure that players across the world can enjoy the game with minimal latency, furthering their attempts to make Valorant the best-feeling, most precise online shooter in gaming history. The time is finally here; are you ready?

  2. DOOM Eternal Anti-Cheat Disabled   DOOM Eternal will be disabling its Denuvo Anti-Cheat in its next update. The recently introduced anti-cheat drew criticism from DOOM players because it uses a kernel mode driver, enabling it to have access to a player’s system even when the game isn’t running. Surprisingly, id Software is being receptive to the negative feedback and has vowed to change course and find a new solution. While it’s unclear how id Software will approach this situation, they released a statement saying that their future efforts would ensure that “anti-cheat integration better aligns with player expectations around clear initiatives.”

  3. Take-Two’s Big Ambitions   Take-Two Interactive, the parent company for developers like Rockstar and 2K Games, has some ridiculously massive ambitions for the future. Specifically, they plan to release 93 different games over the course of the next 5 years. This massive wave of games is set to include 63 “core experiences,” 17 “mid core games,” and 12 “casual/arcade” titles, and is expected to start pouring in during the 2022 fiscal year. Unfortunately Take-Two didn’t mention these games by name so we don’t have any update on things like GTA 6, but it’s clear regardless that video game fans are going to be absolutely spoiled in the coming years.

  4. Civilization 6 Free   Epic Games is back with another huge giveaway! This week’s freebie is Civilization 6, the latest game in Sid Meier’s critically acclaimed strategy series. The giveaway includes the base game as well as the Aztec DLC, with the Rise and Fall and Gathering Storm DLCs both available at a discount during Epic’s Mega Sale. You can claim your free copy of Civilization 6 directly from the Epic Games Store from now until May 28. As long as you claim the game before May 28, you’ll be able to keep it forever.

  5. Area F2 Shut Down   Area F2 has been officially shut down. Following Ubisoft’s lawsuit claiming that the mobile game was a direct ripoff of Rainbow Six Siege, Area F2 has now been removed from the App Store and Google Play. It doesn’t seem that the Ejoy, the Alibaba-owned studio that developed Area F2, provided any resistance to the delisting and players who made purchases in the game can now apply for refunds. It’s unclear whether or not Ejoy will try to make the changes necessary to re-launch the game or if Area F2 will simply be gone for good.

  • Nuwa LV.25 Team Player May 22, 2020, 05:25 AM

    If the game had cross-play, it could get less popularity if there were consoles with aim assist

  • DRK_wolf10 LV.5 Lurker May 22, 2020, 05:43 AM

    Then they will do the game without aim assist

  • Nuwa LV.25 Team Player May 22, 2020, 06:00 AM

    Then they could get sued for Not putting it in maybe

  • DRK_wolf10 LV.5 Lurker May 22, 2020, 06:02 AM

    Tough choice

  • TxKhd LV.6 Fearless May 22, 2020, 04:48 AM

  • Boris Johnson LV.14 Clearly Hacking May 22, 2020, 05:11 AM

    Im Seriously hoping they bring it out For Consoles PS4/Switch/Xbox (I play Xbox) That would make their Player count SKYROCKET from the current amount they have now and Consoles would finaly have a CS:GO Esc Game that would be entertaining and challenging to learn :3
