Riot Games' "VALORANT" continues to attract professional rosters. Dignitas Female's two-time "Counter-Strike: Global Offensive" team will cross-compete in the new FPS title.

"As both a competitive team and female pioneers in the esports space, we're constantly on the lookout for new opportunities to better connect with our fanbase while also feeding our competitive edge," team captain Emmalee "EMUHLEET" Garrido said in a press release.

"When presented with the opportunity to expand to 'VALORANT,' we quickly recognized the game as a sweet spot between a high skill esport title and a game that appealed to a broader gaming audience. DIG Fe and I look forward to the challenge of taking on an additional competitive title and hope to raise a trophy or two in 'VALORANT.'"
