Players will have 5 agents available when the game releases, however, the other 5 agents will be unlocked by playing the game. This makes things a little bit complicated and narrows the gameplay especially at the launch of the game for sure. However, this is the route that developers chose.
Valorant has Riot Games behind the development. The game will certainly collect some player base. However, in order to be successful in the FPS genre, the game needs a bit more variety. We are sure that Riot Games is planning on this. Also, other in-game items will be unlocked as players progress. This will also limit the gameplay in the beginning. Valorant is expected to release around mid-summer, developers announced if there are problems maybe we can see it around late summer.
