What you need to know

  • Valorant is a free-to-play competitive shooter that has been PC-exclusive since its original launch.
  • A limited beta will take place in certain regions on June 14, and it will not include support for cross-platform play.
  • Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will gain access to all of Valorant’s agents at no extra cost thanks to the Perks program.

Riot Games’ free-to-play competitive hero shooter, Valorant, has a dedicated community of hardcore players on PC, but it has yet to make the jump to consoles. That changes next week, as console players in the United States, United Kingdom, Europe, Canada, and Japan can sign up on the Valorant website for a limited closed beta on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5. Those players outside the listed territories will need to wait for future expanded betas to gain console access to Valorant.

The limited beta for Valorant on consoles will begin June 14 at 1PM PT/4PM ET.
