Valorant Episode 2 Act 2: Release Date, New Agent & More

Are you looking forward to a new Valorant agent?


Valorant Episode 2 Act 1 came with some important map changes, a new battle pass, and the new agent ‘Yoru.’ So, it’s no wonder why players are still enjoying the VALORANT Episode 2 Act 1. However, several Valorant enthusiasts are already keen to learn about the upcoming Valorant Episode 2 Act 2.

Surprisingly, Riot Games has already started teasing some important information about the upcoming Valorant update. So, in this post, we’ve gathered all the new Valorant leaks to update you about the Valorant Episode 2 Act 2. Without any further ado, let’s get started.

Valorant Episode 2 Act 2 Release Date

Valorant Episode 2 Act 2 release date will most likely be March 2, 2021. That’s because the Episode 2 Act 1 Battle Pass is coming to an end on March 1, 2021. Considering the Riot Games’ past trend, the new Valorant Act update will release right after the current Battle Pass ends.

Nevertheless, it’s important to note that Riot hasn’t confirm any release date for the upcoming Valorant update yet. So, it’s best not to get too excited about this release date just yet.

New Valorant Agent: Are We Getting A New Agent In The Next Update?

Rejoice, Valorant players who are eagerly waiting for a new controller in the game. Recently, John Gosicki, the character producer at Valorant, confirmed that the developers plan on releasing a New Valorant agent soon.

Interestingly, this new Valorant agent will be a Controller. Gosicki confirmed that the new Valorant controller would be for “galaxy brain” players who like to study entire maps in Valorant.

Right now, Valorant only has three controllers: Omen, Viper, and Brimstone. So, it’s good news that players will soon get a new controller in the game.

“Pain Aux Raisins”

A recent Valorant Episode 2 leak states that the upcoming Agent might originate from ‘Ghana.’ The new Night Market also teased some African symbols pointing towards Ghana. According to the leaked in-game files folder, Agent 15 will speak French, a language widely spoken in Ghana.

Moreover, the leaked files’ sub-folder is named “PainAuxRaisins,” which means ‘raisin bread’ in French. It is probably a reference to the upcoming agent’s origin or a phrase that the agent might use.

As for abilities, the Valorant Episode 2 Act 2 leak says that the new agent will have both smoke and flash abilities. So, there’s no questioning that the new Valorant agent will fall in line with Omen, Brimstone, and Viper.

Other than that, there’s a leaked Valorant VFX sprite called ‘Plexus,’ flaunting a pyramid shape. As of now, it’s hard to say anything about ‘Plexus,’ but it might be the upcoming agent’s unique ability that we’ve never seen before.

Talking about Agents, the new Valorant Act will get buffs for Yoru. On the other hand, players have been asking for Viper changes for a very long time. Unfortunately, Riot confirmed that Viper would not get any updates in the next Valorant Act.

New Valorant Map

It’s been 4 months since Riot released the Icebox map for Valorant. So, there’s a huge possibility that Valorant Episode 2 Act 2 will get a new map. However, officially, Riot didn’t confirm a new Valorant map for the upcoming Act.

Overall, players loved the design of the Icebox Map. That’s because, unlike other Valorant maps, Icebox provides more vertical angles to players, making things more challenging. So, it would not be surprising if developers release the new Valorant map focusing more on the verticality.

That’s all we know about Valorant Episode 2 Act 2 right now. We’ll update this post as soon as we get some more information on the next Act.
