Riot Games attended Summer Game Fest today, and announced that Valorant is coming to Xbox Series X|S this year, and our Limited Beta will be starting June 14!

Valorant is a 5v5 character-based tactical FPS where precise gunplay meets unique Agent abilities, creating the perfect sandbox for you to blend skill and creativity and create your own clutch moments. Whenever you play Valorant, there’s this special moment where everything will just click. Your teammate will throw out a Skye flash for you, you’ll dash into site as Jett, get crisp one taps, reset your dash and look for more. Or maybe you’re left in a 1v5 situation, but you’ve got your utility and your aim is feeling clean on the day, and you clutch up for your team, everyone getting hyped in comms for you.

We like to call that the Valorant moment, where creativity meets clutch. And it was our dev team’s main goal when we were bringing Valorant to console. We wanted to bring it over only if you could feel that same rush with a controller in your hand.

Our global community has grown over the past four years, more than we ever could have imagined. We love seeing their clips, cosplays, fan art, montages, and more. And that’s honestly what excited us most about our Limited Beta launch for console. We can’t wait to get Valorant in more players’ hands, and can’t wait to see what content you’ll create. You will be a fresh set of eyes on our game, and we know you’ll come up with new creative ways to play, think of new ways to combine abilities, and clutch rounds.

Valorant is a live service game. We have updates every two weeks, where we balance the game, and launch new content. You’ll be getting the same patches at the same time on console as PC. So with the next update, you’ll get to enjoy the new bundle balance updates, and more with everyone else!

If you are someone who likes to swap between playing on PC and console, or you’ve been a Valorant player on PC but prefer to play on console, no worries – we’ve got your back. Your Friends List, Collection (Skins, Player Cards, Gun Buddies, etc), Battle Pass progress, and Agent unlocks, will all carry over. While Valorant will not be crossplay between console and PC, if you have friends who play on other consoles, you both can queue up and hit the ranked grind together.

Our Limited Beta begins on June 14 in the following regions: USA, Canada, Europe, and Japan. Throughout our Limited and Open Beta more regions will be made available and we’ll continue to update availability throughout our roll out. If you want to hop into game, you can sign up to join the Limited Beta now at If your region isn’t listed, and you’re interested in the Limited Beta coming to your region, we encourage you to still sign up. This will ensure you’re registered if your region opens up during the Limited Beta, and will help us gather interests from all countries.

If the Limited Beta is your first time playing Valorant or making a Valorant account, when you load in you’ll have five Agents unlocked for you, which is our standard for all new accounts. You’ll be able to unlock more as you play games, but if you have Xbox Game Pass, all Agents will be unlocked for you. If you have Game Pass it will also automatically unlock new Agents for you on day one as well, so whenever we launch our next Agent you’ll be able to play them the minute they go live.

Every Episode, we update our Map pool so that players can play on new Maps, and we can make adjustments to the ones we swap out, if they’re needed. We want to get you all caught up to speed and have the same Map pool our current players have, but we know that that much content could be too overwhelming. So, over the course of the Limited Beta, we’ll be rolling out our Map pool so that we can introduce you to them, and give you time to learn how to play them out:

Unrated, Swiftplay, Deathmatch:

  • June 14: Ascent, Bind, Haven, Abyss
  • June 25: Sunset
  • July 9: Lotus
  • July 23: Icebox


  • All TDM Maps


  • All Maps available on PC

That’s all we have to share for now, but we’ll be releasing more content about console, and celebrating players as they hit milestones throughout our Limited Beta. So please follow us on X (formerly Twitter), Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and TikTok. If you also want to talk more about Valorant or look for some friends to squad up with join our Discord.
