Valorant expands its Closed Beta to South Korea, Latin America and Brazil
- Valorant's Closed Beta program was only available to America and Europe prior to the announcement.
- Players residing in South Korea, Latin America and Brazil can now participate in the game from the 5th of May.
Valorant made a ton of progress last month, although the Closed Beta was available in only two regions - America and Europe. But, after an official announcement on YouTube, the Valorant beta program will now be available in three more regions. Starting from 5th May, the players residing in South Korea, Latin America and Brazil can also enjoy the game.
Having said that though, players shouldn't ignore the fact that the game is still in its closed beta version, meaning that they will require an active key/account to participate. To get the key, players will have to watch Valorant streams on Twitch for at least a couple of hours. Once users watch the video, they would become eligible to play the game.
At the time of the announcement, Anna Donlon, the executive producer of Valorant commented,
Beginning May 5th we’ll be able to welcome South Korea and most of LATAM into the global VALORANT Closed Beta community with data centers going online in Seoul, Santiago, and Sao Paulo. As for Mexico City, we want to get you into this Closed Beta so badly. But this is where we have hit the majority of our infrastructure delays. So while we might not be able to get you in exactly on the 5th we will be getting you in as soon as we possibly can.
In addition to this, Valorant also confirmed that specific streamers would run 24/7 streams, which would broadcast the pre-recorded content.
