Riot Games recently shared details for Valorant’s closed beta, which will officially begin on April 7, 2020. With the first wave of closed beta keys already having gone out, we are all anticipating the next drop. We have included a quick and easy guide on the three simple steps you need to take for a chance to get access to the Valorant closed beta.
Accessing the closed beta
Valorant’s announcement says the first wave of players will step into the server in April 2020. Limited space is available for players from Europe, Canada, the United States, Turkey, Russia, and CIS. Additionally, Riot hopes to expand the closed beta to more regions, “pending the volatile logistics of launching a beta effectively during a global pandemic.”
Residents of countries eligible to partake in the closed beta need to simply follow these three easy steps:
1. Register for an account with Riot Games
2. Link your Riot Games account with your Twitch account.
3. Watch Valorant Twitch streams tagged with “Drops Enabled” when the closed beta begins on April 7.
Players who follow the above three steps will have a chance to randomly receive closed beta keys via Twitch drops. If you’re not a registered Twitch user, you can set up your account here.
More on Valorant
Valorant is a highly-anticipated 5v5 first-person shooter that has attracted a lot of attention from the gaming community since its initial announcement. The goal of each round is for the attackers to detonate a spike on one of the three sites. Meanwhile, the counter-agents must prevent the attackers from destroying the site.
While the game can’t be accessed yet, Riot Games has made the game launcher available for download. Players can download the executable by visiting the website here. To access the launcher, the user must have an active Riot account.
