Valorant is finally coming to consoles

Riot’s tactical shooter Valorant has been a PC-exclusive since it launched in 2020 — but that’s changing very soon. The developer has finally provided some details on the console version of the game, which will be available in a limited beta on the PS5 and Xbox Series X / S starting on June 14th. You can register right here. The beta will be limited to the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Europe, and Japan, and Riot says that it will be “possibly rolling out to remaining global regions shortly thereafter.” There’s no word on when a full launch might happen.

Riot says the console versions of Valorant feature “custom-built gameplay” and that crossplay between console and PC will not be available for competitive reasons. That said, the game will support cross-progression if you choose to play on both PC and console, meaning your skins and progression will carry over between platforms.

“We were adamant that Valorant’s core, competitive gameplay must feel natural on a controller,” production director Arnar Hrafn Gylfason said in a statement. “And — if we couldn’t deliver on that gameplay promise — we had to be prepared to walk away from it. We hope we nailed it, but ultimately, our players will have the final say.”
