Valorant: Release date, closed beta, gameplay, and everything we know
Riot Games' hardcore new FPS blends the character abilities of Overwatch with the precision gunplay of Counter-Strike.
Valorant is taking on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. First announced as "Project A" during Riot's 10-year anniversary stream, the 5v5 FPS blends the character abilities of Overwatch with five-on-five gunplay that rewards quick reflexes and precision, and Riot says it's put a huge amount of work into ensuring lag and wonky hit detection don't get in the way.
Those bold technical promises are the primary way Riot intends to differentiate Valorant from its direct competition, which includes Overwatch, CS:GO, and Rainbow Six Siege. Even if it does have the best netcode, though, that won't mean anything if Valorant's mix of quick time-to-kill combat and character abilities doesn't feel distinct enough.
How to get into the Valorant closed beta:-
The closed Valorant beta has started in the US, Canada, Europe, Russia, and Turkey. Unlike most betas that email accepted participants at random, you'll have to get a random beta key by watching qualified Twitch streamers. Here's how to sign up....
Register for a Riot account ( https://signup.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/signup/index#/)
 Link your Riot account to a Twitch account  create a Twitch account (https://www.twitch.tv/)
 When closed beta activates in your region (EU and NA for now), watch specific Valorant Streams ( https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Valorant ) highlighted on Twitch for the opportunity to be entitled for Closed Beta access 
Don't be too discouraged if a key doesn't turn up, and don't feel like you have to watch tons and tons of Valorant streams to have a shot at beta access, after the first day of the beta, once you've watched a couple hours of streams with your account linked, you're eligible for a beta key. It's just a matter of chance, at that point, as demand has been incredibly high.
Don't buy a closed beta account, or you could be banned by Riot
Eager players wanting to get into Valorant's closed beta have gone so far as to purchase accounts with access for $150. Riot has warned that these accounts will be sought after and Banned as soon as possible, so think twice before wasting that cash.
When is Valorant's release date? 
Riot hasn't officially confirmed a release date for Valorant, but it's planning to release it in the summer of 2020. The exact release date will depend on feedback received during Valorant's beta.
