Valorant Champions Bundle Raises Over $16 Million USD
The Valorant Champions 2022 skin bundle is a collection of in-game items themed around the ongoing world championship, and it has generated over $16 Million USD for the participating teams. The bundle was launched on 23rd August and it will be available until 21st September. 50% of the net proceeds from the sales go towards the teams which means that Riot Games has generated over $32 Million USD through the sale of the bundle already and the number will only go higher until the end of the purchase window.
Each participating Valorant team will receive over $1 Million USD
With the bundle proceeds being distributed evenly to all teams participating in the event, the 16 teams at the event will receive over $1 Million USD each. The 2022 bundle features the Champion’s Aura, a visual effect that makes the skins in the collection glow when you become the top fragger in the game. The bundle is priced at 6,167 Valorant Points ($60 USD). The items individually cost 9,200 Valorant Points ($90).
The bundle includes a Phantom skin and a Knife skin that have exclusive visual effects and auras which can be generated by getting kills. The new bundle collection also includes changes to the previous Champions Bundle. There are now additions to the Champion’s Aura. Riot added that there will be a visual effect that evolves every 5 kills (maxing out at 25 kills), and a special easter egg on the butterfly knife that triggers if you’re top fragging and have at least 25 kills.
The previous Champions bundle generated $18.7 Million USD in revenue and it included the Champions Vandal skin, three player cards, the Champion title, Champion Karambit melee skin and more.
The proceeds from the bundle are awarded in addition to the $1 Million USD prize pool. Unlike the prize money which will be distributed based on the teams’ performance at the event, the Champions Bundle proceeds will be rewarded to teams equally.
LOUD and OpTic Gaming are set to compete against each other tonight. Last year it was Acend who brought the championship to Europe. But this year, it will be a new region that comes out on top.
