Valorant for PC is now available for download in India

- The game servers are not yet available in India yet but Riot Games says the servers will become available soon
The Valorant Riot Games’ freely available online first-person shooter game is now in India. Other than the Indian market, the game was also made available in most of Asia-Pacific and Oceania. The game has been available since 4.30 am IST and the Windows PC game is also currently available in Europe, Turkey, Middle East, and North Africa (MENA), Russia, and other Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). The Valorant game will be released later in the North America region (including the US), Latin America, and South America at 5 am PDT/ 8 am EDT.
The launch times for the Valorant game have been made available with a tweet by the official Valorant handle. Also, the tweet confirmed the name of the game’s first episode which is Ignition and a new map called Ascent with its setting in Italy.
No VPNs for Valorant
If you were planning to VPN your gameplay, Riot has stated that they are not supporting regional transfer as of yet. This will also be affecting your server and ping value hence it is not recommended anyway.
Valorant does not have any servers dedicated to India at the time of launch. Riot has stated that Valorant servers for the Middle East and South Asia will be available later in 2020.
How to download Valorant
For those who have to download the game, it is simple. The game is not available on Steam – like other Riot Games titles. Go to Valorant’s official website and click on “Play Now”. Now log in to your existing Riot account or create one. Once done, you will be taken to the Valorant download page.
Before you start playing the game, we will recommend making sure if you have the latest graphics drivers. Nvidia recently released a “Valorant Game Ready Driver” last week which has been numbered as the GeForce Game Ready 446.14 WHQL driver. The game driver brings support for Windows 10 May 2020 update which has been rolling out globally.
