Valorant is now live here in Australia

Valorant goes live at 9.00 am AEST here in Australia, Riot Games has confirmed.

Riot confirmed the game will be rolled out at various times across the world, with Australia lumped in with Korea, Japan “and more of Asia-Pacific.”

While we wait for 9.00 am AEST to roll around — and that’s not very long — there are some things you can do to prepare. The download link on the Valorant page seems to have been removed, but you’ll likely be able to find it back there soon. (Update: It’s back up! The game’s a 7.8 GB download.)

You’ll also need to prepare a Riot account to play. If you’ve already created one to play League of Legends, Legends of Runeterra or Teamfight Tactics, simply use those credentials. If you don’t have an annount yet, you can create one here.

Valorant heads to Windows PC today, 2 June.
