Valorant Mobile has reportedly entered beta testing after a year of teases. A leak is giving the world an early look at the game, including a screenshot of the mobile overlay.
Valorant has quickly become one of the top PC shooters in the world, but Riot Games isn’t stopping there. The developer is now eyeing the mobile market for players that want to squeeze in a five-versus-five game on the run. Rumors of a mobile Valorant have endured since the game’s launch, but it may be happening sooner than expected.
Valorant players will soon be able to dash away with Jett on their mobile devices. According to leaker ValorLeaks, the game has already entered the testing phase.
Valorant Mobile could be coming soon
Mobile players have hoped to try the game on their phone screens since Valorant’s blockbuster release in 2020. The hero shooter has caught the eye of console players and gaming enthusiasts across all platforms. It seems that they’ll finally get to take Jett on a spin in a mobile version of Valorant.
ValorLeaks has provided numerous accurate leaks regarding Valorant, and a new one suggests that the mobile version has entered testing. If the leak is accurate, then players should expect a fully-developed Valorant mobile sooner than expected. The leaker also dropped an in-game screenshot from the mobile version of the shooter game.
The leak appears to be from the Chinese version of the app, so it’s evident that select players in different regions are already trying out the game. The overlay of mobile Valorant looks clean and straightforward in the leaked screenshot.
Ability icons are displayed in faded text on the top right side of the screen for accessibility, whereas movement icons are much closer on the bottom. The screenshot is from the defender’s spawn, so a shopping cart icon for the buy menu is still visible. Players would be able to buy their weapons by clicking on the cart in the middle of the screen.
It’s still unknown how this screenshot got leaked as regular players don’t have beta access yet. The leaker previously revealed that beta access would be open soon with an invite system. Only those who receive invites from an existing beta user would be able to run Valorant. Someone who has received beta access to Valorant can invite five others through a personal referral link.
Will Valorant Mobile have an in-game chat?
The leaked screenshot also includes icons for in-game voice and text chat. Mobile players will be able to communicate with each other during the game, just like in the PC version.
