Valorant, Riot’s FPS, has been a resounding success since its release in 2020, thanks to its unique blend of tactical shooting mechanics and ability-based gameplay along with a wide selection of incredible-looking cosmetics that indeed have enticed the player-base to grind the game out.
Through an exclusive press release, TalkEsport have determined the next upcoming skin bundle which will be Protocol 781-A and would replace the current “Run it Back” bundle. Themed upon a dystopian alternate timeline, the Protocol 781-A is a new sci-fi bundle that is not as clean and futuristic like Ion, not otherworldly like Singularity, and not fun and colourful like Glitchpop.
Preeti Khanolkar, Senior Producer for Premium Content (Skins/ Cosmetics/ Weapons) at Riot added,
“Protocol 781-A was in the concept design process before launch, so we originally didn’t have a Phantom or Spectre in the set. Instead, there was actually a Stinger and a Bucky! When the skin got delayed, we decided on the swap because by then we’d decided to add VO and make this a Ultimate Edition (UE) tier. Since our last UE (Elderflame) had a Vandal, we wanted this set to include a Phantom. Another artifact of this being an older skin concept was that the melee was the standard tactical set (though with custom “transformation” animations). We didn’t think this was exciting enough, so we adjusted the design so it felt more close-combat and badass. The mech being added to the Finisher was also a late add and something we felt fit the vibe of the skin very well. We’ve made a lot of cool Finishers lately (Spectrum, Champions, Ruination, etc.), but this is probably the one that got the team most hyped during development. Finally, the skin name was almost an accident,”
The Protocol 781-A Bundle will have the following weapons alongside a Personal Administrative Melee Unit.
- Melee Knife
