The Valorant closed beta has been active for a while now, but there are still plenty of people who haven’t gotten their beta key yet. Now with the Valorant beta ending soon and an official release date announced, you might not be in as much of a rush to get in–it will be free to play for everyone at launch. Of course, Valorant is still among the top-streamed games on Twitch and reached record-breaking viewership numbers post-launch as players scrambled to get into the exclusive testing period. Its ranked competitive mode finally went live in a recent patch too–with ranks resetting after the closed beta period ends, now is still a good time to get in early and test things out before launch.
