VALORANT Mobile release date and the rest you need to know

We have confirmation that VALORANT Mobile is in development! We decided to collect all of the information we can on the game including the release date, news and some speculations, all in one article.

A game where skill matters more than cheats, and choosing the right Agent depending on the circumstances really has an impact on the game, making it a massive hit. Of course, since it's Riot Games we're talking about, we were bound to get another big title.

However, you're not here to learn about that. Since you found yourself on this page, you want to learn everything there is to know about VALORANT Mobile since it was just announced yesterday. With that in mind, let's dive right in.

Like we mentioned in the intro, VALORANT Mobile is the mobile version of a first-person tactical shooter for PC. The PC version of the game was released one year ago, seeing massive success. In the meantime, the mobile version of the game has been in development and during the one-year anniversary, the mobile version has been announced.

In fact, VALORANT Mobile was something that the developers started as a question. To quote Anna Donlon, the executive producer, “We didn’t start out with ‘We’re making Valorant on mobile,’ we started out with ‘Can we make Valorant on mobile?’ with a lot of skepticism,".

The take

VALORANT Mobile will be a game that's going to bring the genuine PC experience to handheld devices. It will not be a port of its PC version, but a new build that is completely adjusted and cleverly created for mobile. It should deliver on the expectations for all mobile players, and not compromise on quality for a timely game release.

At the moment there is no way to download the game. You might find some third-party websites claiming to have early builds of the game or APKs, but we strongly suggest you stay away from them (if you care about your personal data).

I repeat - there is no way to download VALORANT Mobile at the moment, not even an APK. Chances are, there will not be any build of the game for at least another year. We'll keep you up-to-speed though, and if there is any other information that we learn, you'll be the first to know!

This point goes hand in hand with what I just mentioned above. There are some VALORANT Mobile APKs, but they will ask for verification. To verify that, you'll actually need to pay (real-life money). DON'T DO IT! There is no VALORANT Mobile without verification. Those apps are probably a scam, and you should not install them if you care at all about protecting your data.

However, there is a VALORANT Mobile pre-registration

There is another option if you want to learn when VALORANT Mobile will become available. On TapTap you can pre-register for the game. That means you'll have to make an account on the website, and as soon as it becomes available, you'll hear about it.

The answer to this should be pretty obvious - no. Just like Riot did with League of Legends and Wild Rift, games, where high skill and intense mechanics are involved, cannot be played to their utmost extent via cross-platform.

What we will see, instead, will be something along the lines of Wild Rift. A standalone game that is well-made and specifically adapted to mobile, without losing any of its key elements (those elements that define what the game actually is). So, chances are we will get to see a VALORANT that will feature (probably) mechanics that won't be extremely difficult to execute, and if they will (like Sova's kit), they will probably have some quick-cast option. We'll have to wait and see!

Yes, VALORANT Mobile will be available for iPhones and iPads, so rest assured - the game will become available for both Android and iOS users whenever it will launch globally. That has been the case with Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, Wild Rift, and since VALORANT Mobile is another Riot Games creation, there's like a 95% chance it will be on iOS too.
