Valorant Mobile Exists! Leaked Screenshots Reveal Details, Apparently Beta Version Hit China

A beta test could be available soon globally.


Riot had announced earlier last year that Valorant will be coming to mobile but there wasn’t much in the way of a release window or beta testing window from Riot. However, now, it appears that screenshots from the Chinese Beta test build of the game have begun to make the rounds of the internet, giving way to a whole new wave of rumours.

According to several reliable sources on social media, it appears that Riot has launched the Beta test for Valorant in China but it appears to be a closed test. Meaning, that only players invited to the beta will be able to take part in the test.

Valorant Mobile Beta Test Apparently Launched in China

Valorant Mobile

Valorant is one of the most popular tactical hero shooters on PC by Riot and has developed into one of the most competitive and beloved shooters in the games industry. Many major publishers and studios have begun to make headway into the mobile gaming space and it looks Riot might want to follow suit as well.

There is also a healthy amount of scepticism on the internet regarding whether Valorant will translate well onto the mobile platform. A major concern is whether the competitive nature of the game will be diluted and compromised in favour of a more casual style that might adapt to the limitations of mobile hardware.

On the other hand, many studios have proven that mobile games need not trade in their competitive edge for accessibility. Games like Call of Duty Mobile, PUBG Mobile (BGMI in India), and even Free Fire have had a solid competitive scene across the world and the games are still fun enough for the casual gamer.

Valorant isn’t the only major competitive, tactical shooter headed to Mobile as Ubisoft confirmed earlier this week that Rainbow Six is also headed to mobile. It will be interesting to see how the 2 titans of competitive tactical shooters will fare on mobile and whether they are able to find a new audience.
