After being in closed beta for a couple of months, Riot Games has decided to seize Valorant’s servers and address a proper launch, which is occurring tomorrow. Valorant is scheduled to release in a couple of hours from now, which is exceedingly close.
US, EU, and remaining regions won’t share a synchronized launch, which designates different launch times available for each area. Riot Games has posted the launch times for all of the areas, and you can find them below:
- In 12 hours – Korea, Japan, and most of Asia-Pacific
- In 18 hours – Europe, Turkey, MENA, Russia, and CIS countries
- In 25 hours – North America, Latin America, and South America
With the launch, we expect to see new agents, alongside a slew of features that weren’t available throughout the beta. The start of the game is also subtitled as Episode 1: Ignition. Probably a subject to change in the future, or with the arrival of new seasons.
The most exciting feature we’re looking forward to is the automatic bans that were promised by Riot Games. Despite the promise of a robust anti-cheat system, we’ve never had the chance to see the anti-cheat in action, even though we have teamed (by matchmaking algorithm) with multiple cheaters, both on our side and against us.
