Similarities to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive map Inferno

With the trailer launch of Pearl Map, VALORANT fans have noticed some similarities to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive map Inferno. The ancient architecture of the Pearl map caught the attention of those who dabbled in CSGO. Pearl map looks like a cleaner, happier version of CS: GO’s Inferno map.

It will be so interesting to see how VALORANT agents and their abilities play out on the brand new Pearl map. The map has a lot of tight corners, agents with blinding and other abilities will be very effective on this map.
