With patch 2.03 dropping yesterday, the first hints about who will be joining the cast have emerged.
As spotted by a handful of community members yesterday, it looks like Riot Games are getting their teasers in early.
While the topic of discussion may have been focused on one agent, Reyna, who received a very confusing and overwhelming nerf, it might be that our focus shifts very quickly.
So what's going on? Here's what we found regarding Agent 15.
Agent 15 Teasers In Valorant
Agent 15 will launch with a new Act - as it always does (this being Episode 2: Act 2).
Riot has confirmed in the past that Agent 15 will be the fourth Controller in Valorant’s line-up.
Character producer John Goscicki told players: “We’re trying to push the boundaries when it comes to Agent abilities in Valorant, and so far, everything we’ve thrown at you has been less disruptive than we thought they’d be,”
“Our next Controller is a cosmic shift from the play patterns you’ve grown accustomed to. This one is for all you ‘galaxy brain’ players out there that like to study everything that happens on a map.”
This is certainly a mouthwatering way to tease your next agent...but there's more!
Now it looks like Riot Games are taking the teasers one step further.
When loading into Haven, you may notice an unusual glowing orb in the Defenders spawn - players are labelling it an "Ember".

This wasn't the only place you could find it either!
Players have started to notice the exact same visuals on Icebox and Bind as well.
Meaning they may well be hidden on other maps too.

It remains to be seen if this actually is related to Agent 15 - but it's unlikely these have appeared for no reason.
