Valorant PBE Schedule (7.08 to 8.00): Upcoming Patch Test Dates, Features, More
A lot of things to preview, test, and report.
The latest season of Valorant has started, Episode 7 Act 2, delivering lots of new features for the players to enjoy. However, it has also produced some bugs that are quite annoying and most of them have been taken care of by the developers.
To combat these issues, trial runs of the upcoming patches have been planned via Public Beta Environment (PBE) servers. These are separate from the main servers and are used to run trials on certain features before they officially roll out.
For all those interested in trying out possible changes that might be made to Valorant in advance, PBE servers are the place to be. Here are the tentative PBE dates for updates from 7.08 to 8.00.

Riot Games has designed a test server called PBE which is open to the public hailing from North America. Anyone interested can sign up and those that get shortlisted get to try out upcoming patches in advance, testing features and gameplay changes before they are officially released.
