Valorant has received its first larger closed beta patch, which led to players encountering the Version mismatch error, stopping them from playing alongside their friends. But what does it mean and why does it occur?
Here's everything you need to know about Valorant's Version mismatch error, what it means and whether or not there's a fix for it.
Valorant Version Mismatch Error
Players have reported bumping into Valorant's Version mismatch error when trying to hop into games alongside their friends.
As the error has surfaced around the launch time of a new patch being deployed, it's likely what causes the issue.
Trying to play alongside friends in a different region could lead to getting the Version mismatch error if one of you has downloaded the update while the other hasn't.
It's a good idea to check when exactly Valorant patches deploy in different regions to make sure you're running the same version of the game.
That being said, players have reported Valorant's Version mismatch error occurring even when trying to play with friends from the same region. This could be because the new update takes a while to reach every player.
Be sure to check your game's version by bringing up the sidebar from the top left corner of Valorant's menu.
Regardless of case, there isn't much that players can do to get around the error. If you're encountering it, you'll have to wait for everyone to have the same version of the game before you can play Valorant with your friends again.
