Valorant is a widely-popular first-person tactical shooter developed and published by Riot Games. The developers are well-known for their work on League of Legends, and aim to make Valorant an esports title in the tactical FPS category. One look at Valorant and you will be able to identify the game's similarities with Overwatch and CS: GO (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive).
Valorant's core gameplay mechanics are similar to CS: GO. Meanwhile, the addition of characters differing in their abilities and usage is similar to Overwatch.
By no means, however, can this game be considered a rip-off. Valorant has its unique elements and creativity, thanks to character abilities, that help define the game as different and capable of being an esports title.
How to run Valorant on PC without graphics card
Valorant is a game which utilizes low-poly assets at its fullest. This lets players get high FPS even with low-end PCs. The title is around 7.2 GB in size, and the graphical fidelity is pretty decent on all settings. The developers themselves have said that Valorant can run on PCs without a graphics card.
You can run Valorant on a PC with the help of your dedicated GPU, which comes with Intel or AMD CPU (or processor). To run the game, open your settings and lower the resolution to 720p.
