    Last Updated on June 9, 2024

Get ready, gamers—Valorant is expanding its battlefield to consoles, and you’re invited to the frontlines. Riot Games has lifted the veil on its entrance to the consoles, with beta testing slated to go live soon, as proudly announced at the 2024 Summer Game Fest.

Beta Testing Phase Details

The much-anticipated Valorant Console beta testing kicks off on June 14, marking a new chapter for the acclaimed tactical shooter. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Start Date: June 14, 2024
  • Platforms: Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5
  • Regions: U.S., Canada, U.K., Europe, and Japan
  • Sign-Up: Valorant’s official beta testing website

Riot’s Vision for Valorant Console

Riot Games ensures that with Valorant, the heart-pounding, precision-based gameplay you love will remain unchanged. In the words of the development team, they strive to maintain “the same uncompromising, competitive experience” for Valorant across all platforms. Staying true to the game its fanbase adores.

Additionally, Valorant will not feature a cross-play between the consoles and PC to ensure competitive fairness and integrity. Valorant comes with unique features tailor-made for controllers. The introduction of the ‘Focus’ feature is Riot’s solution to master the challenge of less precise hipfire controls. Ensuring every shot and strategic move feels as intuitive as on a keyboard and mouse.

Unified Player Experience Across Platforms

Embracing the Valorant Console era doesn’t mean starting from scratch. Riot has worked out a way to connect your achievements across PC and console. Whether you’re defending on Bind or planting the spike on Ascent, your progress follows you, thanks to cross-platform progression:

  • Gameplay Progression: Linked to your Valorant account across all platforms
  • Simultaneous Updates: Uniform release of patches, new agents, and maps on consoles and PC

Valorant’s Road to Console

The journey to Console began with a PC-focused vision, but Riot Games’ plans evolved to encompass a wider gaming community. Last year’s strategic hiring was a telltale sign—Valorant was destined for the console universe, and now it’s becoming a reality.

Conclusion

As we gear up for the Valorant Console beta testing phase, there’s an electric buzz in the air. Valorant on consoles is not just about taking the fight to a new arena; it’s about Riot Games opening the doors of Valorant to a broader swath of players. Ready your tactics, fine-tune your reflexes, and prepare to experience Valorant like never before when the beta lands on June 14. What will you bring to the fight?
