“Our plan was to bring the Valorant closed beta to as many players around the world as quickly as possible, but the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted those plans, compromising a wider global rollout. For now, we have to focus on the regions where we feel most ready, with more regions following in the months to come,” Valorant executive producer Anna Donlon stated.

As for the people who have access to the game right now, it mainly consists of prominent streamers that Riot Games provided keys to. But this list is growing and Riot Games has implemented an innovative manner to give out more keys. This methos ensures that the game becomes popular and is marketed at the same time.
Here are the steps to get a Valorant Beta Key:
– Start off the process by going to the Riot Games website and sign up for an account or logging into an existing one.
– Once that is done, go to Twitch website and either log in or create a new account.
– Then go to setting and link you Twitch account to the Riot Games account.
– After linking accounts go to the streams under the ‘Valorant’ tab and watch for at least two hours.
Note: The stream should mention if it has drops enabled. Watching for two hours is a minimum to qualify for a key drop, but the longer you watch the better your chances of getting a drop. Right now all Valorant streams are filled with people, hence the drop rates may be low. Even if you’re from a region that does not have the game yet, it could not hurt to have a beta key ready for the launch.
