The Valorant beta has finally ended which means that fans of the multiplayer shooter can no longer play any online matches. This is obviously disappointing for everyone who has obsessed over Riot Games’ newest IP, and these fans are naturally desperate to know when Valorant will be back up.
Riot Games’ beta was available for a long enough amount of time for players to become hooked and for the title to become popular. In fact, it became so popular that people now regard it as a Fortnite competitor as opposed to just Apex Legends and Overwatch.
If you were one of the game’s many players and are eager to get back online, below you’ll discover when Valorant will be back up and running as a full release.
Valorant scheduled maintenance and queue is disabled
The queue is now disabled in Valorant as the game is offline and scheduled for maintenance.
If you’re at all confused about the above messages, they basically mean that the game is not available to play until its release date.
Obviously a lot of people are desperate to play the game again which is why it’s good news that its launch date isn’t too far off.
As for what you can expect when the game launches, Riot Games have told Polygon that they will be renaming the top rank of Valorant to something else.
Aside from changes, you should know that when the servers are back up all of your progress will be reset.
You’ll still keep any rewards earned in the closed beta player pass, but any purchased skins will not carry over to the full release.
Valorant points you purchased will be refunded with an extra 20% deposited into your account, so at least there’s that.
When is Valorant maintenance over?
The Valorant maintenance will be over on June 2nd.
Riot Games’ aforementioned release date is when Valorant will be back up but there’s currently no launch time.
It’ll still be free-to-play when it launches and the good news for newcomers is that it’ll be approachable thanks to everyone starting from fresh.
