Valorant: Confirmed Maps - Haven, Bind, Post-Launch Maps, Unique Features, Release Date & More

There is a brand-new game from the creators of League of Legends, and it is expected to be the competitor to Valve’s CS:GO and a few other games.

Valorant is only available on PC for now, but we already have plenty of information on the maps that all gamers will be able to use.

Bind is the only map that follows the traditional two bomb site setup, but it also doesn't have a neutral area in the centre.
