Valorant is coming to consoles starting with a limited beta, and the announcement immediately led to questions surrounding crossplay. If you’re wondering whether you’ll be able to play with your friends on PC, here’s everything you need to know about Valorant console crossplay.

Valorant will be landing on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series XIS on June 14 beginning with a limited beta test. The tactical shooter has been exclusive to PC for years and its arrival on consoles has got fans excited. But there are plenty of doubts regarding things such as controls, progression, and of course, crossplay.

A common question many console players have asked is whether or not they’ll be able to play with their friends on PC. With this in mind, here’s what you should know about Valorant console crossplay.

Does Valorant have crossplay between console & PC?

Players on PC and console cannot play together.

Valorant does not support crossplay between PC and console, meaning players on PC will not be able to play with or against players on the console version. The devs made this choice to maintain “competitive integrity,” a reason that likely has to do with different input methods.

With that said, the game does support crossplay between PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series XIS. So, players on both consoles can play together.

Valorant cross-progression explained

Valorant supports cross-progression across PC and console. So, if you’re playing the game using a Riot account that’s linked to both versions, you’ll be able to share progression and your inventory. The shared progression extends to account level, in-game currencies, unlocked Agents, skins, and Battle Pass progress.

It’s important to note that the Ranked system for both platforms will be different, and you’ll have a separate rank and MMR when playing on console and PC.

That was everything to know about Valorant console crossplay. If the beta will be your first time playing Valorant, make sure to check out the best Agents in the game and the ones with the highest pick rate.
