VALORANT: Chamber Release Date And Storyline Significance
Chamber is scheduled to release in VALORANT Episode 3 Act 3 with Patch 3.10 update. This will be two weeks after players have started exploring Act 3. The developers informed that the Agent was delayed for finishing touches and that they want to make sure everything makes sense with the Chamber's release.
As for Chamber's significance in VALORANT's storyline, fans will have to wait for the official voice line to be added in the game. The playercards for the Agent will add context to Chamber's origins in the VALORANT universe.
Community expert Cynprel speculated that Chamber may have some past relationship with Astra, since both of them use Astral technology.
In the official trailer, we can see how Chamber meets Brimstone and almost freezes him in time. Towards the end, he releases Brim and they strike an accord, thus adding Chamber to the VALORANT Protocol. It will be interesting to see how the story unfolds once the Agent arrives in-game.
