Riot’s FPS game has concluded its closed beta on May 28 prior to the scheduled launch. Riot’s tactical shooter is currently offline with the servers being under maintenance. The game’s big launch will happen on June 2 and Riot have already planned ahead with what’s about to be the biggest Valorant event so far. During this downtime the developer has announced the first large scale competition in VALORANT

Riot will be hosting a global tournament on the first weekend of the launch. Teams from North America, Europe, Latin America, Korea, Japan and Brazil will be competing in this tournament to crown a regional champion. Besides the bragging rights Riot has also offered $200,000 in prize money for the competitors. The event will be streamed on Twitch and is hosted in cooperation with Twitch Rivals. With $200,000 on the line, this will be the biggest Valorant tournament, but chances are the prize pools in the future will get even bigger. Unlike events in the closed beta, this one will include players from all regions. The only sad thing about is that when we say players, it’ll be once again strictly limited to content creators, streamers and pro players.

TO CELEBRATE LAUNCH, WE’RE TEAMING WITH COMPETITIVE FPS CREATORS TO HOLD A GLOBAL TOURNAMENT AND CROWN 1 WINNING TEAM FROM EACH REGION. UP FOR GRABS IS A $200,000 PRIZE POOL AND THE RIGHT TO COUNT THEMSELVES AMONG THE FIRST GLOBAL VALORANT CHAMPS.HTTPS://T.CO/8KTOQEVSCK — VALORANT (@PLAYVALORANT) MAY 28, 2020
