VALORANT Unveils New Team Deathmatch Map, DRIFT, Inspired by Thailand

Riot Games and VALORANT today revealed Drift, the newest Team Deathmatch map launching on December 5, 2023. Inspired by Thailand and its floating markets, Drift features a long range mid that has several paths for players to weave in and out of the space for more dynamic engagements. Players can expect a lot of aim duels to be had while quickly swapping lanes via an overhead rope they can jump to.

Team Deathmatch is VALORANT’s 5v5 game mode that pits players against an enemy team in custom maps. In Team Deathmatch, players will get to choose their loadout for each stage at the start of the match or anytime they’re in the spawn room. Weapon spawners will also be placed around the map as well as recovery and ultimate orbs. With four timed stages, no econ, and players respawning every 1.5 seconds, the key to victory is simple: the first team to get 100 kills wins.
