We’re teaming up with Riot for the VALORANT closed beta
Riot Games, the developer behind League of Legends (you may have heard of it…), recently announced a closed beta for its upcoming 5v5 character-based shooter, VALORANT. You’ll need a Twitch account for a opportunity to play, so you’re in the right place!
To be eligible you’ll need to do a few things, starting with living in Canada, Europe, Russia, Turkey, or the United States. After that:
Your first chance to watch your favorite streamers play VALORANT (and get an opportunity at beta access) will be April 3 during our Twitch Rivals event, the VALORANT Showcase.
This past weekend, hundreds of Twitch Partners got their hands on the game, and we worked with some of them to record their gameplay. Starting at 10AM PT when the VALORANT Showcase kicks off on twitch.tv/twitchrivals, the Partners from these recorded games will also each play back a full, unedited, uncensored match from their perspective on their own Twitch channels. Check them out individually (see below), or tune in to /twitchrivals to catch all the best moments from each match.
The main broadcast and select streamer channels will be Drops enabled on April 3. After April 3, we’ll activate Drops again starting when the beta begins on April 7. Good luck, and we’ll see you in chat.
