Riot Games Announces Valorant Closed Beta Program


It’s been a couple of months since Riot Games announced that it is working on a bunch of games that are quite different from the famous League of Legends. One of the games that stood out the most from Riot Games is called Valorant and it is a 5 vs 5 tactical shooter. The game is similar to popular titles such as Overwatch and Paladins. However, what will make it stand out is the new champions and unique gameplay mechanics that it offers.

Valorant Closed Beta Program

Even though Riot Games has yet to announce the official launch dates for its upcoming dates, the game publisher decided to surprise the gaming industry earlier this morning when it revealed that the closed beta program for Valorant will go live on April 7, 2020.

The closed beta program is going to be available for gamers who live in the US, Canada, Europe, Turkey, Russia, and CIS countries. Riot Games also stated that more regions will be eligible for the Valorant closed beta program in the future.
