According to Riot Games, the new player cards to be available are dubbed the Pride Player Cards, and they will only be available through code redemption on June 3rd.
The inclusion of minorities and other genders has always been a big target of Riot. The publisher's announcement of Valorant Champions Tour Game Changers was the first big step towards it. With Game Changers, they hope to encourage all women and other marginalized genders in the community to participate in Valorant Esports.
As far as the new Pride player cards are concerned, it will undoubtedly attract a lot of attention towards Valorant as Riot Games looks to empower the LGBTQ+ community.
