VALORANT Mobile continues to be tested in specific markets, and a large amount of content has surfaced in recent weeks. Before this brand new point, VALORANT fans discovered that the mobile variant of the game featured attractive MVP animations that showcased the best player in a match. Now, things have reached more serious proportions, as VALORANT Mobile was discovered to feature practice maps populated with AI-powered bots.
It’s a fantastic feature that has never appeared in the PC version of the game. In this new mobile-only feature, players can load any map they want, set up some bots, and practice to their heart’s content. For now, PC players will have to be content with the very limited practice mode that has been available in the base game since its launch.
Does Valorant Mobile have a full practice mode?
In gameplay snippets that leaked during VALORANT Mobile testing, we’ve seen shots of bot-based gameplay in Ascent. It’s the only map that’s been featured so far, but it’s only fitting that all of the game’s maps are featured in this new mode. For a feature like this, there’s a good chance it’ll eventually make its way to the PC version of the game, but that’s just a guess.
Here is the clip showing the practice mode in VALORANT Mobile:
It looks like there are even some unique mechanics built into the practice mode. For example, we see paths open when the player successfully eliminates bots, clearing the way to the sites. It goes beyond pinging static targets in VALORANT’s typical practice range, that’s for sure.
This is the second feature that has proven to be exclusive to VALORANT Mobile and has PC gamers green with envy. Recently, the same leakers revealed a new series of MVP animations in VALORANT Mobile that pay tribute to the best player in a given match. It goes beyond having a simple card to highlight the MVP of a match, and is a feature that has unique animations for each Agent.
Will we see VALORANT mobile esports?
We’ll almost certainly see VALORANT Mobile esports whenever the game launches globally. There has been a rise in the popularity of mobile esports games in recent years and it is only getting better with time. For example, the introduction of PUBG Mobile proved to be a remarkably successful move and in the esports space, the mobile version arguably took over the main game.
Again, this is a guess: nothing has been confirmed yet, not even when the game will hit the market. We’ll have to keep an eye on the social waves and see what new content is produced next.
