Riot Games has been granting access to the Valorant closed beta via the Twitch Drops system through partnership with a number of prominent streamers. Now, the system is active on any stream broadcasting Valorant on Twitch, meaning you can watch any streamer for a chance to get beta access and not just direct partners.
“Starting now, all VALORANT Twitch streams can drop closed beta access (as long as they are playing VALORANT)”, a new post from Riot reads. Beta drops are still running 24/7 and the number of streams that can grant them have increased, but the number of accounts being granted beta access is not increasing at this time. The number of accounts brought into the beta may increase over time as Riot ramps up additional back-end resources.
Right now, the Valorant beta is live for players in Europe, Canada, United States, Turkey, Russia and CIS countries. Soon, access will also come to Brazil, LATAM and Korea, with other countries to follow.
The final message from Riot this week reminds players that they are aware of the high demand for beta access and how it can be frustrating to not get access after several days of consistently watching on Twitch. It is something that the team is working to improve as the server infrastructure continues to be rolled out worldwide.
