Valorant Breaks Single-Day Viewership Twitch Record

Valorant is Hype on Twitch Right Now

Riot Games has recently released the closed beta for Valorant and Twitch fans showed up in droves to check out their 5v5 FPS. While the game was viewed by 1.7 million gamers on its first day, it has since broken the single-day viewership record for Twitch, amassing 34 million hours watched in one day. The original gameplay reveal for Valorant was able to collect over 12 million hours watched in one day. The closed beta is currently in North America, Europe, Russia and Turkey and it will be coming to more regions as it gains traction and the full version of the game releases in Summer 2020.

After struggling to compete with the viewership numbers set by the 2019 League of Legends World Championship Finals, Valorant has officially smashed viewership records with 34 million hours watched in one day. While Riot Games is the developer behind both Valorant and League of Legends, it’s always nice to see developers continue to innovate rather than rest on their laurels. The executive producer behind Valorant has assured enthusiastic fans that more regions will be getting a Valorant beta as the release date gets closer and the team is appreciative at the incredible response from the Twitch community.

While the full version of Valorant will include much more content than the closed beta, there are ten Agents currently available to try out in the Riot Games FPS. More content will be released to the beta as it moves from closed to open and leading into the full release of the game, giving fans more things to experiment with. The title is currently only being developed for PC but Riot Games has said that it may end up on consoles in the future as well.
