If there’s one thing VALORANT fans want more than a complete game, its to get into the closed beta. That is, for those that haven’t received a beta drop yet, but it’s even worse for those residing in regions that don’t have access to the game at all.
In a recent Twitter post, VALORANT executive producer Anna “SuperCakes” Donlon announced the inclusion of Brazil, some parts of Latin America (LATAM), and South Korea to the game’s closed beta. Canada, Europe, Russia, Turkey, and the US were the first regions with access to VALORANT when the closed beta began about a month ago.
Annyeonghaseyo, Korea! Vamos, Latinoamérica! Bora, Brasil! Today @RiotSuperCakes welcomes new regions to the VALORANT Closed Beta and gives an update on our progress so far. pic.twitter.com/RKr6FN5gmC— VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) May 1, 2020
In her video, SuperCakes explained why Mexico isn’t included in the list of new regions. Due to infrastructure delays, Mexico City won’t be joining the VALORANT beta on May 5, but some time afterward, when the proper infrastructure has been put in place. Other regions like Japan, the Middle East, and Oceania still have a while longer to wait.
Even with the coronavirus pandemic still raging across the world, Riot Games seems confident that they will make their Summer 2020 release. As they work hard to get more and more regions into the closed beta, it looks like the VALORANT devs have a contingency plan for every possible outcome.
