Valorant has finally left its closed beta period and is now available to play around the world for free. Unfortunately, some players have been facing Valorant’s Version Mismatch error. In this guide, we’ll talk you through everything you need to know about the error and what you can do to fix it.
Version Mismatch Error in Valorant Explained
Simply put, the version mismatch error will appear more often than not when you’re trying to play Valorant with friends.
What this often means is that one player has an older version of the game that is no longer compatible when playing with others’ on the latest version. This often happens if you or your friends live in different regions as patch releases are staggered. It can also happen if you or one of your friends hasn’t closed the client in a while.
To fix the Valorant version mismatch error, simply exit the game and close the client completely. Then, reopen the client and you should now be prompted to download the latest version of the game. Let the download complete and you should no longer face the issue.
If closing the client and reopening it doesn’t cause you to download an update for the game, you may need to run the game’s installer again or completely uninstall and reinstall Valorant. It’s not ideal, but if it means you can play the game with friends, you gotta do what you gotta do!
