Closed Beta Phase 2 Rolls Out

Posted Fri, May 8, 2020 in Random Sauce 0 comments


On Tuesday, May 5th, Phase 2 of the VALORANT Closed Beta began with rollout to the new regions. Data Centers went online in: Seoul, South Korea, Santiago, Chile and Sao Paulo, Brazil. 

VALORANT Executive Producer, Anna Donlon mentioned that the team has had a majority of infrastructure delays in getting their Mexico City, Mexico Data Center online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She mentioned they hope to have that Data Center online at a later date.

Regions such as: Oceania (Australia and New Zealand), Japan, Southeast Asia, and the Greater Middle East are not yet able to join the Closed Beta. Riot’s teams continue work to build out infrastructure in these regions to allow access in the future, but no time frame has been set due to the pandemic.

Localized voiceover work has also been affected by the pandemic, causing mixed language Agent VO to be used for the time, until complete voiceover work in each language can be recorded.

Anna Donlon also noted latency issues have affected areas where the Closed Beta is online due to high internet usage globally and ISP routing issues. Riot Games is working to improve ping by troubleshooting with ISPs and continuing buildout of infrastructure.

The only way to join the Closed Beta is by Drops. Link your Riot account to the streaming platform while watching VALORANT streams on Twitch in LATAM and Brazil or on Twitch or Afreecatv in Korea.

Did you get put into the wrong Closed Beta server region? Here’s our guide on how to get it solved.
