Can you play Valorant with someone on a different region? Yes, you can change region in Valorant and if you are not sure how to do that, this guide will help you out. There are two ways to make this happen. Switch server regions to enjoy this FPS multiplayer game with friends from other countries around the world.
How to Change Region in Valorant?
When you create your Riot ID, you will be assigned to your current region and you will be able to play with other players from that region itself. So, if you are in Paris, your server region will be EU and you can play with EU friends. But if you want to change region in Valorant and team up with players from other countries, you can do it in two ways:
- Making a New Riot ID
- Changing your Region from the Valorant Support page
Let’s look at these in a bit more detail:
Making a New Riot ID
When you create a new Riot ID while using a VPN, you will be able to change region in Valorant to the one you want.
- Choose a VPN that is also safe to use.
- Head over to the Riotgames page where you can Create an Account.
- Create a new Riot ID.
- Now, you don’t need to keep the VPN on.
- Log into Valorant normally and you will be able to play with others who are from a different region.
Since Riot assigns the region as per the ID, you don’t have to worry about keeping the VPN active. You can simply switch it off after you use it the first time. So, if you were wondering how to play Valorant with friends who are overseas, this is the easiest way to do it.
Changing your Region from the Valorant Support page
There’s another method to change region in Valorant but this one is a bit tricky because it changes the region permanently. If that is what you want, then you can go ahead with this method and follow the steps given below:
- Log in to the Valorant Support Page
- Check your current region.
- Change the region manually.
- Confirm and that’s it.
- You will be able to play Valorant from your preferred region.
In case you change your mind, you won’t be able to switch back to your original region in Valorant with this method. So according to me, the best thing to do is use VPN with your new Riot ID.
That’s all about how to change region in Valorant. Now, go ahead and enjoy playing the game with your friends located in any part of the world. While you are here, don’t forget to find out how to appear offline and hide from your friends and how to type and talk in All Chat.
