Riot Games Celebrates Indian Culture With New Agent

Riot Games released its first Indian Valorant agent, Harbor, earlier last month. Harbor is Valorant’s first Indian agent and second from the Asia region.

Check out our Deepavali special feature here!

With a focus on authentic representation, Harbor was launched with inspiration from the best of Indian cinema and music. To bring the agent closer to Indian players, Riot also hosted its first physical community event in Mumbai in October to welcome Harbor to Valorant. The emcees for the event were Tanmay Bhat, Abish Mathew and Ocean Sharma.

Crowds were thrilled with a stunning cosplay of Valorant’s newest Agent and his trademark motorbike as seen from the trailer. A number of well-known Indian influencers, including Ujjwal Chaurasia (a.k.a. Techno Gamerz), Naman Mathur (a.k.a. Mortal), Tanmay Singh (a.k.a. Scout) and Shagufta Iqbal (a.k.a. Xyaa) along with Valorant pro players like Skrossi, Rakazone, HydraFlick, Antidote and more made appearances at the event. The night ended with a performance from ARB4, Mangal Suvarnan and Tienas, the music team who produced Harbor’s theme song, RAJA.

“We have been humbled by the love and passion Harbor has received so far! This is just the beginning. Our Indian fans and players can look forward to even more hyperlocal experiences in the future. We hope players enjoy the slate of unique digital content we have planned for the next few weeks that will share the warmth and beauty of Indian entertainment and culture to the world,”

– Ashish Gupta, Lead Marketing – India & South Asia at Riot Games

To welcome Harbor to the fold, Riot has rolled out a number of digital activities for players to enjoy, these include:

  • Community Event Supercut – Relive the excitement, thrills and best moments from the Harbor community event in Mumbai with the event supercut.
  • Diwali Greeting Video – Acknowledging one of the most important festivals within Hinduism, the Riot Team wishes everyone a Happy Diwali.
