American video game developer Riot Games has confirmed that its tactical shooter Valorant will be released on game consoles. The developer announced on its website that Valorant will be available on Xbox and PlayStation platforms in a limited beta version from June 14. The company has also launched registration for this game on its website.

The 5v5 tactical shooter has been available exclusively on the Windows platform on PC since its launch in 2020. However, it will soon be available in beta on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PlayStation 5 in select regions – including the US, UK, Canada, Europe, and more. The company also stated that it will be rolled out to more regions “soon thereafter”, however it has not yet been confirmed that a stable, full version will be made available on gaming consoles.

The limited beta version of the game will only be available to registered players. Additionally, registered players will be able to invite five more players to try the console version of Valorant.

Riot Games has confirmed that console players will not receive access to cross-playing. This essentially means that Valorant players on Xbox and PlayStation consoles will only be able to play together and will not be able to join games with PC players. The company stated that this was done to maintain “competitive integrity”. While cross-play is not available, cross-platform progression will be supported on all platforms as users will have the same Valorant account across the PC and console versions of the game. Thanks to this, saved game progress on PC will be visible on the console and vice versa. This cross-progression will allow users to transfer purchased Battle Pass, recruited agents, purchased skins, and more between console and PC.

Valorant: Details

Valorant is an online multiplayer tactical first-person shooter consisting of two teams of five players, one of which attacks and the other defends. The game is played in a series of rounds until a team has won a total of 13 rounds in the game. For the attacking team to win the round, it must eliminate all defenders or drive a “spike” in a designated place. For the defending team to win the round, it must eliminate all attackers or disarm the spike in time. The game features characters called agents, who have their own unique abilities that are useful during the game.
