Valorant is finally making its way to consoles, offering more players the chance to enjoy Riot's tactical shooter. Before its release, a limited beta will take place to allow developers to make the necessary tests.

If you don't want to wait until the full release and plan to participate in the beta, here is everything you need to know about it.

Start date

The limited beta for Valorant's console version will start on Friday, June 14 for both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. US, Canada, Japan, and Europe will be the first regions to receive access to it, with other countries following.

Trailer

This is the trailer for the console version of the shooter that first debuted during the Summer Games Fest 2024 presentation:

How to register

The process to register for the beta is fairly simple and here is what you need to do:

  • Visit this site.
  • Once there, you will only have to click on the button that says "Register now".
  • You will have to sign in using your Riot account.
  • Once you're in, your registration should be complete and you'll be redirected to a success page.

Content

On launch, the beta will offer access to the following game modes: Unrated, Swiftplay, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Custom Games. The only mode absent from this test will be Ranked, which shouldn't be a surprise.

In terms of maps, here are all the maps that will be available at the start:

  • Ascent
  • Bind
  • Haven
  • Abyss
  • All the TDM maps

More maps will be added in the following weeks and here are the dates for each one:

  • Lotus - June 25
  • Lotus - July 9
  • Icebox - July 23

Keep in mind that all unrated maps will be available from the start in Custom Games, meaning that you won't have to wait until they're added to the rotation to try them.

Other details

Here are other minor details about the beta revealed by Riot through the game's official page:

  • There will be crossplay only between console players, meaning PC users won't be able to play with PS5 or Xbox Series X|S players.
  • The console version will feature cross-progression and cross-inventory, meaning any progress you already have on the PC will transfer over and vice versa. This includes any purchased/unlocked cosmetics, like weapon skins.
