Riot Games celebrated the one-year anniversary of VALORANT’s first-ever Indian agent, Harbor by conducting a beach clean-up at Mahim beach in Mumbai on the 26th of October 2023. The event was organized in partnership with Global Esports, and saw the VALORANT community including players as well as popular influencers such as Binks, Pinkcess, CaspeR, SkRossi, Jimmy, Harsh, and others, come together for the initiative. 

Hailing from India's coast, Harbor storms the field wielding ancient technology with dominion over water. The beach clean-up drive was a tribute to Harbor's water-themed abilities, as well as a means to promote awareness of the significance of maintaining clean beaches. It also served as a gesture of gratitude to the Indian gaming community, which has shown immense love and support for the VALORANT agent over the past year.

Speaking on the occasion, Arun Rajappa, Country Manager, India & South Asia, at Riot Games said“We are grateful to the vibrant Indian gaming community, and believe that the success of Harbor is a testament to their unwavering support. The inclusion of an Indian agent not only highlights the significance of the thriving gaming community within the country but also underscores India's rising influence in the global gaming arena. We are committed to delivering even more innovative and inclusive gaming experiences for our audience here, while also giving back to the community that has embraced our efforts wholeheartedly.”

Riot Games has been actively engaged in fostering community engagement and enhancing the player experience with multiple initiatives. Earlier this year, Riot Games unveiled eye-catching mural art and billboards to celebrate the successful launch of Agent Harbor with the Indian gaming community, and also commemorated the third anniversary of VALORANT in India with BHARAT VALORANT celebrations.
