Speaking of the event, Joel Guzman, Country General Manager for the Philippines at Riot Games said, “Riot Games is more than just a gaming company. We strive to create immersive experiences through music, entertainment, and fashion, but with players as our number one focus.
Being able to collaborate with industry giants like 88rising and meeting our players at events like Head in the Clouds further elevates VALORANT’s position as a trendsetter that bridges both gaming and music, and we can’t wait for the local community to enjoy the immersive VALORANT-themed experience and activities at the festival.”
