Riot Games has unveiled the latest Agent for their upcoming first-person shooter, VALORANT. Sova has been debuted in the latest trailer released by VALORANT.
Based out of Russia, Sova is reminding many of Hanzo from Overwatch with his ability to send out an arrow that allows nearby enemies to be spotted through cover. In addition, Sova can send out a drone similar to Crypto from Apex Legends.
Sova’s abilities are as follows:
- Shock Bolt: Fire an explosive bolt that emits a damaging pulse of static energy upon impact.
- Owl Drone: Deploy a pilotable drone that can fire a dart that will Reveal enemies who are hit.
- Signature Ability – Recon Bolt: Fire a bolt that deploys a sonar emitter. The sonar pings tag nearby enemies, causing them to be revealed. Can be destroyed.
- Ultimate Ability – Hunter’s Fury: Fire up to three deadly energy blasts that spear across the entire map. Each hit enemy takes heavy damage and is marked.
The highly-anticipated first-person shooter is expected to release in Summer 2020 although there has yet to be an official date set.
It will be interesting to see if Riot can deliver on the promises they’re making regarding the sophistication of the infrastructure to combat network issues and cheating.
