Valorant is Riot Games" first foray into the crowded competitive sầu FPS market, và it"s merging the considered, strategic play of Counter Strike with the hero-based antics of Overwatch to lớn create a pretty compelling hybrid if you ask us.

This means it"s a game which features high lethality & a high skill ceiling. Land a headshot and enemies will tumble to lớn the ground in an instant, there are angles to hold, abilities lớn master, and you"ll be heavily punished if you run around the map with abandon. It"s not for everyone, but you might be surprised at how you take khổng lồ the game"s unique blkết thúc of tactical nhân vật shooter.

It’s also going to be free-to-play which means anyone can get in on the action, & with the full launch sometime in summer of this year, we predict it’s going to be a huge affair. Could it take on the likes of CS:GO? For sure.

Well, if you wanted khổng lồ kiểm tra out the game before launch & see what it’s all about, there’s a Closed Beta arriving in April. Below we’ll explain when it’s launching & how you can increase your chances of gaining access with a beta key.

Valorant Closed Beta: How to lớn get a key

Right, let’s break down everything you need to lớn know about the closed beta.

Valorant Closed Beta Release Date

Valorant’s Closed Beta will start on April 7th, 2020 and will be limited lớn players in Europe, Canadomain authority, Russia, Turkey, and the United States. There is a possibility the beta will roll out later to more regions, but with the COVID-19 pandemic Riot is currently focusing on the regions where it feels “most ready”.

How vì chưng I get a key?

Riot Games is collaborating with Twitch when it comes to lớn gaining closed beta access, so you’ll need to lớn get signed up with the streaming platkhung if you’re based in Europe, Canada, Russia, Turkey, & the US.

Next, you’ll need to lớn follow these steps:

3. When the closed beta activates in your region (EU & NA for now), you’ll need to lớn watch specific Valorant streams highlighted on Twitch. Doing so will make you eligible for closed beta key drops.

It’s then simply a case of watching these streams for a couple of hours lớn ensure you’ve sầu been whitelisted. You won’t know that this has happened, but rest assured that once you’ve sầu watched a fair amount of Valorant streams you’ll be eligible. From here on out, you don’t actually need khổng lồ watch streams as you’ll still get an alert via Twitch và through your registered gmail account if you’re lucky enough khổng lồ get a key.

For more info on this, the tweet below has everything covered.

How vày I know which streamers to watch for key drops?

When you"re browsing Valorant streams for key drops, make sure you watch only those which have the "Drops enabled! Watch for a chance to lớn earn loot" tag. These are verified channels, so you will definitely be in with a chance of getting inkhổng lồ the closed beta by tuning in.

Some channels put "Drops!" in their headline, but this doesn"t mean anything. If they don"t have sầu the special tag mentioned above sầu, watching their stream won"t give you a chance. Do make sure you double kiểm tra.

Above sầu we"ve sầu embedded an official tweet from Twitch which should give you a better idea of what message khổng lồ look out for.

How vì chưng I know if I get a beta key?

At the top right of your Twitch trang chính screen, you"ll find a red marker in the notification panel which is sat between your Prime Loot and Whispers. Click on it, and it"ll say that you"ve sầu got a Valorant Key!

We"ve linked an image of the notification panel above sầu. It"s the bell ibé in the centre.

We received our key in the middle of the night while we were asleep and woke up khổng lồ an gmail in our inbox from Twitch. So you don"t need khổng lồ be on high alert, especially if you"ve got email push notifications on your điện thoại devices - it"s going to be hard to lớn miss.

When is my last chance lớn get a beta key?

Key drop streams will be active sầu from the 7th April, with many streamers advertising 5:00am PT/ 8:00am ET/ 1pm BST as closed beta launch time. Again, just make sure you keep an eye out for the official "Drops Enabled!" tag. Even if it says so in the title, the special tag is all that matters.

The closed beta marches on và closed beta access is still being granted. As the tweet below mentions, you don’t need to watch drop enabled streams 24/7, so once you’ve sầu watched a couple of hours, take a break - you’ll still get an alert via email or on Twitch if you get a key.


One week in. A couple notes as we get inlớn the weekkết thúc. 1. Drops are running 24/7. If youve watched a lot... take a break! CB access comes even when youre offline. 2. We hear you on demand. Weve sầu already increased CB VPS capađô thị +25% and are tracking down more internet.

Fingers crossed!

How long will the closed beta last?

Initially Riot stated that it didn"t envisage the closed beta lasting that long, but did say that if it "hears a lot of unexpected feedback from players during this period, we"ll evaluate". Clearly they"ve heard bachồng from its community & changed taông chồng. At the time of writing, the closed beta has been knocking around for well over a month now!


We can see the closed beta lasting indefinitely from here on out, perhaps transitioning inkhổng lồ xuất hiện Beta with one big patch, followed by another 1.0 patch before it officially launches sometime this summer. Keeping the closed beta running means Riot can gather continuous feedbaông chồng & iterate on the game as much as possible before launch. We simply can"t see it shutting off all access at all, khổng lồ be honest.

Why is my region not included?

The plan is to roll out khổng lồ more regions as fast as possible, “pending the volatile logistics of launching a beta effectively during a global pandemic”. Riot has chosen to focus on other regions first as this is where it feels “most ready”.

Here’s the full statement from Valorant’s executive sầu producer at Riot Games, Anmãng cầu Donlon:

“Our plan was khổng lồ bring the VALORANT Closed Beta lớn as many players around the world asquickly as possible, but the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted those plans, compromising a widerglobal rollout. For now, we have to focus on the regions where we feel most ready, with moreregions following in the months to lớn come.

We want to lớn engage with players as globally as possible as quickly as possible, and so we’ll ramp up our player count as much as we can to lớn kiểm tra our infrastructure, but we won’t be letting everyone playtest VALORANT until we’re absolutely sure we can handle it in this newly uncertain environment.”

Riot’s official channels will provide updates if the situation changes, so keep an eye on their social truyền thông feeds for news.

Will my Beta progress carry over lớn the final game?

Progress will not carry over from Valorant’s closed beta inkhổng lồ the final game. This is because the game’s current state may change drastically at launch, plus, “it’s better that everyone’s progress begins at the same starting line”.

What happens to Valorant Points I purchase during the closed beta?

At launch Riot will give you all of your Valorant Points (VP) baông xã, with an additional 20% bonus as “thanks for engaging with our work-in-progress skins & store”. For example, if you purchase 10,000 VP. during the closed beta, you’ll get 12,000 VP.. at launch (this bonus applies khổng lồ bundles bonuses when purchasing larger amounts too).
