  • VNG announced that Valorant is officially launching in Vietnam with official servers on April 6, 2021.
  • Players will be able to connect to the Vietnamese servers once the servers go live next week.
  • Players from Vietnam can download the game from the official Riot Games website ahead of the launch to play it day one.

Valorant’s Vietnamese servers were first teased back in May 2020, but all talks of the region receiving its own server died down over the past year. Riot Games revealed at the time that its game is launching for “most of the world” and for regions like Vietnam it “won’t be able to launch just yet”. The studio was aware that without Valorant’s Vietnamese servers, players in the SEA would face higher latencies and they promised to deliver a solution soon. After nearly a year of waiting, Riot Games is finally set to launch Valorant’s Vietnamese servers.

Valorant VNG Release Date 

The Vietnamese version of the game, Valorant VNG is scheduled to release on April 6th, 2021.

Valorant’s Vietnamese Servers Overview

According to an official announcement by VNG, Valorant’s Vietnamese Servers will launch on April 6, 2021 and countries like Singapore, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand will have access to yet another low-latency server to play on. Valorant already has Singapore servers but the addition of Vietnamese servers will offer more options to players in Southeast Asia.
