The wait is finally over! The new server for the South Asian region – Valorant Indian server is live now. Valorant rolled out Act 3 on October 13th which featured a new Act III battle pass, singularity weapon skin, icebox map, a new agent (delayed to Oct 27), and some refreshed competitive changes. But Riot adding a new Valorant Indian server for the region was the leading priority for the Indian players.
The new Valorant Indian servers are located in Mumbai and will match players across the countries like Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives, and Sri Lanka. The players within the region can play the game at a lower latency now. In the recent update, Riot has also enabled the players to play on their preferred server. However, the newly added Valorant Indian server will still be part of the South East Asian server(in terms of receiving updates and maintenance).
Valorant received a warm response in India after its release. The switching of former CSGO professionals to the game was one of the major boosts to it. The game has then kept growing over time and, we’ve seen names like Velocity and Noble Esports already starting the competitive scene in the country.
There was just a demand for a Valorant Indian server of their own by the players and Riot hasn’t disappointed. Within 4 months of its release, the company has given a dedicated Valorant Indian server to the country. In time, Valorant seems to lead the PC gaming scene in India.
Apart from the South Asian servers, Riot has also added servers for the Middle East and North Africa regions.
Valorant has already started looking strong as a title in the PC scene in a very short period. The developers have been actively working on improving the game to ensure it is competitively ready. The game has now started to solidify itself in the Southern East land too and produce a tough competition to its rival games.
