Valorant is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S this year

Riot Games has announced plans to release tactical multiplayer FPS Valorant for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

Players can register now to participate in a closed beta test that will begin on June 14, ahead of the game’s console release later this year.

The free-to-play, 5v5 character-based shooter originally released for PC in June 2020.

At the time, Valorant executive producer Anna Donlon said Riot was exploring the possibility of bringing Valorant to consoles.

But she told GameSpot that a potential console version of the game would need to have the same “strong level of competitive integrity” as the PC one.

While Riot had some concerns players might be able to gain an unfair advantage depending on their chosen platform, Donlan said designers on her team were “very excited” to prove that the free-to-play game could work on consoles without making any compromises.

“We are definitely prototyping that right now,” Donlon said of a console version. “But there’s a way to play this game and there’s a way to experience this game that we’re not entirely sure translates completely to console play.

“If we feel like we can deliver this experience on those platforms, we absolutely will. But we really want Valorant to stand for a certain type of gameplay and a certain type of experience.”
