The League of Legend maker’s new game is available in a limited beta, and even though most of us can’t play Valorant yet, it’s already breaking records on Twitch thanks to an inventive-laden streaming strategy. Its style falls somewhere between Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Overwatch and could make it the next big thing in esports, but it’s really just the start for Riot.
