Riot Games has announced that its tactical shooter Valorant for PC will leave the closed beta on May 28 and will be available globally on June 2, 2020. Before the game is active for everyone, the development studio will restart player accounts, introduce new content and prepare for the official launch.
“Our goal has always been to officially launch Valorant as soon as possible and for as many people as possible, and we are excited to be able to do so on June 2nd,” said Anna Donlon, executive producer of Valorant at Riot Games. “The launch always brings with it higher expectations, so we want to continue to have conversations with players to maintain our long-term commitment to the Valorant community. This is just the beginning of our journey”.
Riot Games claims to be preparing for a huge demand from players wanting to come and play on Valorant. That is why it has announced the creation of new servers in some locations, including Madrid, Atlanta, Dallas, London and Warsaw with the aim of improving latency. In addition, new content such as game modes, new agents and maps will be released shortly after the title’s release. Valorant will be distributed under the free-to-play model, so it will not have to be boxed.
