Since Valorant entered its closed-beta stage, many players have been wondering exactly when the full game will get released. Riot Games first revealed it in October 2019 and has since then failed to provide an official release date for it. All we know is that it will arrive sometime in Summer 2020, but the exact date is yet to be revealed. However, while fans wait for the full game to arrive, Riot Games has decided to further expand the beta to more regions.
The closed-beta for Vaorant went live on April 7 and became available for only North American and European players. Players who were in other regions only had the option to wait patiently for the client to arrive in their respective regions. And now, after seeing that players in the two regions are enjoying the game a lot, Riot Games is soon going to make it available in three more regions.
Valorant Beta Is Expanding
Starting May 5, Valorant closed-beta will become available in Latin America, Brazil, and South Korea. This was confirmed by the official Twitter account of Valorant in which the game’s Executive Producer, Anna “SuperCakes” Donlon also made a short statement.
Other Regions Will Get It “Soon”
As per the executive producer, the company’s top priority is to make the game available for everyone around the world as soon as possible. In the past few days, there have been many players asking the devs to add a Mexico City server to the game. In response to them, Anna claimed that they want to get them in the closed beta badly, but there are some delays to this. She confirmed that while they won’t be able to introduce a Mexico City server on May 5, they will be introducing it as soon as they can.
Anna also added that players in Oceania, Japan, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East will soon get access to the beta. However, they will have to wait a little longer for it. In any case, it is great to see that the beta is slowly expanding to different regions. Valorant has been getting a lot of attention from all over the world, and it will be exciting to see how much it will get once the full version is out. Top streamers have already started streaming it full time, and different players are making a professional shift to it. All we can do is wait till Summer to see whether it will manage to create a big esports scene for itself or not. We are also yet to see if it can manage to cross CS:GO.
