Riot Games celebrating Valorant's first year with new limited-time Event Pass

+ 1

Valorant is one year old! We can't believe it either, to be honest with you. Riot Games' tactical shooter has gone from strength to strength over the last several days and it looks like there's going to be another few little updates coming over the next few weeks.

One of these is the Valorant YR1 Event Pass and we have everything you need to know about it right here.


Event Pass Start Date & Duration

At the moment, we don't know that much about Valorant's YR1 Event Pass. It's a bit of a mystery, in truth. However, Riot Games has revealed when the Valorant YR1 Event Pass is due to be released for all Valorant players and how long it will be available.

As it stands, the Valorant YR1 Event Pass is due to start on June 22nd and it will last a couple of weeks, finishing up on June 7th.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY - Time flies when you're playing a game like Valorant, right?

We're expecting things to start mid-afternoon, looking at previous updates and events. Although, we can't really be confident in assigning a specific time to this just yet. We're expecting Riot Games to share more as we get closer to release. They've still got to share more about Valorant Mobile, too.


Event Rewards & More

Again, we don't really know too much about Valorant's YR1 Event Pass just yet. All we know so far is the following from Riot Games' Year One Announcements post...

" Even though it’s technically our birthday, there’s another gift to you: the YR1 Event Pass—free for everyone.

" No prerequisites, no VP spend, just 7 levels of exclusive YR1 items like the Episode 3 Player Card, a Gun Buddy, and more. Just play VALORANT, earn XP, and unlock."

The Valorant YR1 Event Pass is going to come with 7 levels of in-game rewards for players to unlock simply by earning XP in-game. These include a new Gun Buddy, the Episode 3 Player Card, and more.

We're expecting ValorLeaks to share more in the future, as they usually reveal information about upcoming Valorant content ahead of an official announcement. For now, you can claim some free PRIDE-inspired Player Cards in the tweet below:
