In 2023, VALORANT is still attracting new players every single day. Those entering the ranks of VALORANT will need some information before they can fully enjoy what the game has to offer, though. This includes the system requirements for the game, which lets players know if their PC hardware is sufficient to run VALORANT, and the current file size of the application. After all, if players don’t have enough storage space on their hard drive, they won’t be able to download VALORANT in the first place.

While VALORANT doesn’t have nearly as big of a file size as other multiplayer titles, it’s also not a small download either. In regard to the system requirements, VALORANT was made to be able to run on most PCs, modern or not. This means that most players will be capable of running the game at 720p, at the very least.
