Valorant fans have a short window to enjoy the closed beta before it comes to an end this week. Riot Games has been testing the game over the past month and have now confirmed they are ready for the full launch. The dev team has revealed that the Valorant release date has been set for Tuesday, June 2, 2020. It’s shaping up for a busy day for many online multiplayer experiences, so there’s a chance of some real issues next week. But until everything kicks off next week, here what we know about the Valorant beta end date on PC.
WHEN DOES THE VALORANT BETA END ON PC?
Riot Games has confirmed that the Valorant closed beta end date has been set for Thursday, May 28, 2020.
This means fans are heading into the final 24-hours of the testing period, before having to wait several days for the full launch.
It should be noted that Twitch Drops have now stopped, meaning you can no longer join the closed beta.
Riot Games has also confirmed when servers will be closing down on May 28, 2020, which is good news for fans hoping to play until the last second.
The Valorant closed beta end time has been scheduled for around 10:30am PT, and the last chance to enter games will be at around 9am PT.
For gamers in the UK, this will mean Valorant servers closing down at 6:30 pm on the same day.
The game servers will remain offline until the full release date of Valorant, which has been set for June 2, 2020.
A message from Riot Games explains: “You’re probably aware of this, but it’s worth reminding. There are still some regions that we can’t get to just yet, like Vietnam, India, the Middle East, and a few others, but everyone is welcome.
“We are moving Valorant to launch because we want to begin this relationship of service and engagement, and that means taking the first BIG step. Please continue to hold us to high standards, and help us meet them.
“The beta has also allowed us the ability to help define what are acceptable play patterns and what aren’t – i.e. when is a play legit and ingenious vs. when is it a glitch or an exploit.
“We’ve seen some very creative uses of ability combos and pixel perfect placements that go outside of our expectations for the competitive integrity of the game, and now feel confident we can react quickly when new issues arise, as well as solving more fundamental exploits on maps.
“Outside of general game balance, one of the largest requests we’ve heard is that VALORANT is an intense game to play, and there’s not much reprieve from it.
“Having an alternative game mode by launch (or a few weeks thereafter) is on our to-do list, and we have a team thinking about what an ongoing rotation of game modes might look like.”
Nvidia has also confirmed that their latest GeForce Game Ready driver includes support for the release of Riot Games’ Valorant, along with support for Minecraft Dungeons, Disintegration, Crucible, and the new Windows 10 May 2020 update.
