VALORANT will officially release in China shortly. Riot Games is also releasing the popular Prime 1.0 bundle for the Chinese player base.
VALORANT is a 5v5 hero-based first-person shooter inspired by the highly popular Overwatch 2 and Counter-Strike. The game first made its official debut on June 2, 2020. The game immediately became popular among FPS enthusiasts due to its colorful gameplay, exciting lore, and hero-based abilities.
After capturing the larger market, Riot Games will enter China, one of the biggest markets in the world. The entry into China will significantly boost VALORANT’s player base and attract more experienced players and organizations to the ecosystem.
To celebrate VALORANT’s release in the Chinese market, Riot Games is releasing a brand new Ignite Capsule, which includes a Kitana Melee. This Kitana melee will be available with the 7.01 patch and everyone worldwide will be able to buy it. VALORANT is also re-releasing the Prime 1.0 bundle. However, it will be exclusive to the Chinese audience.
Prime 1.0 Bundle with VALORANT China Launch
Prime 1.0 has been one of the most successful VALORANT skin bundles so far. It is also the first bundle that was released with the official release of VALORANT on June 2, 2020. Riot Games intends to make the Prime 1.0 bundle available to Chinese players to mark the launch of VALORANT China.

The Prime 1.0 bundle won’t be any different from the original bundle. The weapon selection of the bundle will also follow the same Prime 1.0 bundle pattern. This means the Prime 1.0 bundle will include Vandal, Guardian, Spectre, Classic, and Axe.
However, the cost of the Prime 1.0 bundle will be different in China, since Valorant Updates suggests that 5160 VP would be needed to buy the entire bundle. But keep in mind that getting a VP in China is fairly expensive. Thus it stands to reason that the bundle pricing will be lower in-game.
