How long will the Valorant servers be down for and when will Valorant be back up? We've got all the latest information on if it's offline.

Valorant’s servers go offline for maintenance, hotfixes, and big patches. On this page we’ll round up all the latest on when Riot is planning to take the game’s servers offline for an extended period and when the game’s servers are likely to come back online.

You’ll find all the recent information at the top of this page, with archived maintenance announcements below it.

Valorant: When are the servers back up?

June 2nd SERVER ISSUES

Valorant's EU servers are down for emergency maintenance, while NA/LATAM/BR/AP are running into issues around game starts.

According to a tweet from Riot EU's servers should be up and running within the hour, so that's around 5:20pm BST.

No word on the dodgy game starts, but expect those to be fixed within an hour or so too.

June 1st Announcement

We've put together a page on what time Valorant's launching for multiple regions, but the short answer is 8:00am EST!

Expect the servers to be online at this time, but they're going to be working overtime as players flood in. Hopefully they'll cope just fine, but don't be surprised if they experience a few hitches on the day.

A new map, plenty of tweaks, and a new agent called Reyna is arriving with its release. Keep an eye on the site for continued coverage!

May 21st Announcement

Riot announced it's officially launching Valorant on June 2nd.

This means the servers will be going down on May 28th and will come back online on June 2nd.

Riot hasn't announced details on exact timing just yet, but we'll update this page as soon as we know more.

Expect tonnes of new content to drop alongside its launch, so be sure to keep an eye on the site for continued Valorant coverage!

May 18th Announcement

On May 19th, servers in NA/Brazil/LATAM will go offline at 4:30AM PT and are scheduled to be back by 10:00AM PT.

On May 20th, servers in KR will be down at 4:30AM KST and will be back up by 10:00AM KST.

Currently there aren't any further details on what's arriving with the patch, but we imagine it's simply making sure the servers are in good shape. Perhaps even preparing them for a bigger update in the near future...

May 12th Announcement

Valorant's servers will be going offline for ALL regions on May 12th or May 13th depending on where you are in the world.

Queues will go down for those in NA/BR/LATAM regions at 4:30am PT, but they'll be back online at 10:00am PT.

Those in KR will have queues go down at 12:00pm PT, with servers back online at 5:30pm PT.

Finally, those in EU won't be able to queue from 6:30pm PT (2:30am BST), but everything will be back up and running by 12:00am PT (8:00am BST).

Patch Notes: Lots of changes here, we're talking gun mechanics, agent tweaks and more!

April 29th Announcement:

Valorant’s latest update is being split between EU and NA, which means both servers will be offline at times that shouldn’t impact the majority of players in those regions.

On May 1st, EU servers will be taken offline for 6 hours. Things will shut down from 3:30am CEST. The servers are scheduled to come back online at 9:30am CEST.

On April 30th, NA servers will be down from 4:30am PT. They will likely be back online by 10:00am PT.

As it’s still in closed beta, the contents of the update are slim, but important. Here’s what’s changing:

  • Fix exploits.
  • Revert headshot sound.
  • Fix two bugs.

It’s important to note that these small hotfixes aren’t indicative of the update cadence Valorant will be home to once it’s fully launched. There will likely be much larger content drops, fixes, and updates with a proper server maintenance schedule.

As soon as we hear any more maintenance or server news we’ll update this page immediately. Keep this page bookmarked for all the latest!

April 28th Announcement

Riot dropped its biggest patch for Valorant to date which went live on April 29th for both EU and NA.

The patch introduced tonnes of quality of life fixes, UI tweaks, some character model improvements, ability adjustments and more. The list is exhaustive, so make sure you head on over to its official page to have a scan through if you're interested.

If you’re after more Valorant content, then make sure you have a look at your Best Agents and Best Guns pages to quickly level up your game. For something a little more in-depth, our How to improve your aim and Best mouse DPI and sensitivity settings pages should make for a useful read. They might require a bit of effort, but the benefits you’ll reap in the long run are more than worth it.
