Riot Games Reveals Second International Tournament for Valorant Champions Tour 2024: VCT 2024 Masters Shanghai
Valorant for China was officially released earlier this month on 12th July, more than three years after it was launched for the rest of the world. The players from the region received all the skin collections along with a set number of agents and maps.
The launch in China was also celebrated with a special melee weapon skin drop called Ignite Capsule, consisting of a specially designed fan-melee which is probably the most exquisite and well-designed knife in Valorant.
Now, the developers have already planned out more than a year in advance how they will be celebrating the one year anniversary of the game's launch in China.
Riot Games will continue maintaining its presence in Asia by conducting another international tournament in the region next year. It has been announced that VCT 2024 Masters Shanghai will take place in the upcoming competitive circuit as the second international tournament.
"From day one we aspire to build a sport that's truly global, with teams, players, and fans from all over the world. With Chinese teams starting to participate in our global events including an amazing run from EDG at Masters Tokyo. We have seen how amazing and promising the community is in China," says Leo Faria, about the upcoming international tournament which is scheduled to take place in late spring 2024.
It will be interesting to see how they perform in the upcoming Valorant Champions Los Angeles 2023 along with their plans for the next competitive season.
