There is no denying the early success of Riot Games’ Valorant, the five-on-five hero shooter that has many of the most popular twitch streamers jumping into the action, and the developers behind the game are expanding access to the beta version to all streamers.
Riot Games has officially enabled Valorant closed beta drops to all streamers that are playing the game, but the number of drops has not increased as Riot has not increased the access slots beyond the 25% boost that was announced last week.
Riot explained that drops are no longer limited to the most high-profile streamers.
“While we’re still running closed beta drops 24/7, please note that this change doesn’t increase the number of drops, just that you can watch any VALORANT stream to be eligible.
As a reminder: drops happen at all times (even when you’re offline!), but only for players in Europe, Canada, United States, Turkey, Russia and CIS countries. This is based off of your Riot account’s home-based region, which you can check by logging into https://account.riotgames.com/account and seeing what is listed under country/region.
If you’re in a region that doesn’t yet have a closed beta— Please be patient! We’re moving as fast as possible to release closed beta in new regions, with Brazil, LATAM, and Korea in our sights, but can’t confirm dates just yet.”
