Some users have found that they’re facing an error after launching the game, preventing them from playing Valorant on their Windows computers. Now, the game does support older Windows versions, all the way back to Windows 7, but the recipients of this particular Windows 11 Valorant Error are known to be running the Beta Windows 11 version.

Play Valorant Windows 11

If you aren’t already familiar with the upcoming global launch of Windows 11 on October 5th, 2021, you should also know that not all Windows PC and Laptops may be able to run it. It is because the newest Operating System being released requires a few essential features that are only available in modern computer systems.

While such parameters may prevent some users from getting Windows 11, a similar situation has arisen for some Valorant players already running the Windows 11 OS via the Windows Insider Program. If you’re wondering if you can play Valorant Windows 11, then the answer is yes, you can play the Valorant Windows 11 game without any hassle until the official launch of the OS.

However, beware of the possibility of a Valorant Windows 11 Ban, which might happen to you under special circumstances.

Windows users that are already a part of the Windows Insider Program to get Windows 11 belong to either the Dev Channel or the Beta Channel. While it is possible to play Valorant despite belonging to either of these channels, a new Valorant error has surfaced for some users who may be behind on their recently pushed Windows 11 Cumulative System Update(s).
