Statespace's Aim Lab Is Now The Official Training And Coaching Platform For Valorant
"Riot has been the best partner, collaborator, and facilitator that we could have asked for."
Today, Riot Games announced that it's now a minority shareholder in Statespace, developer of training and coaching platform Aim Lab. By expanding their longtime partnership, Aim Lab will become the official training and coaching platform for free-to-play shooter Valorant.
Over the past year, Riot and Statespace have collaborated often on multiple games and events, with the first being Valorant's Challengers North America, which introduced Aim Lab to players. For the first time ever, Valorant players could test their skills and compare them to the legendary professionals on the platform. Judging from that successful event, it seemed only a matter of time until the system would integrate into Valorant one day.
Under the terms of the agreement between Riot Games and Statespace, Aim Lab will be the go-to official training and coaching platform, integrating in-game physics, maps, and weapons to simulate Valorant as close as possible. And upon "exercise of a warrant issued in connection with the agreement," Riot will gain a minority share in Statespace and continue to collaborate to develop Aim Lab for Valorant, eventually heading to Riot's MOBA title League of Legends.
Global Head of Corporate Development at Riot Games, Jake Perlman-Garr, offered comments about the future of the collaboration and what it means for their fans:
“We look forward to collaborating with Statespace on developing innovative training and coaching tools for VALORANT and MOBA players around the world to improve their skills at every level.”
