Act 3 will begin on the 28th of April.
With Act 2 slated to end on April 27th, expect the new season to kick off on the 21st.
Here's what we can expect in the new update:
- Agent Updates
- Weapon Changes
- New Battle Pass
- New Agent
- New Map
- Quality of Life Improvements
- Bug Fixes
We know that update 2.08 will bring coaching slots to the game for online competitions.
ValorLeaks has suggested that there's a levelling system of sorts coming, with what appears to be coloured borders. Check out the image
He has also unearthed what looks like an XP system, as well as Coach Slots for high-level play.
It appears we could be getting a new map after the account suggested that not one, not two, but THREE maps are in development at present.
The next map is believed to be 'Breeze' after the Vietnam Valorant account tweeted - the translation for the new teaser stated that the map was called 'Breeze'.
The Vietnam Valorant account also revealed some teasers...
Once we have details about another Agent, a trailer is likely to follow.
The Premium Battle Pass for Act 3 will cost 1,000 Valorant Points, as per previous seasons.
Each "Act" of Valorant has added a new character, and we expect this one to do the same.
The game's roster is now comprised of 15 Agents, and we'll update this more as we hear about Agent 16.
For now, we have this tease from @Valorleaks showing a video with the translation of "In times of war, do not be afraid of bombs" – could our next Agent be focused on explosives, or diffusing them?
Riot has been experimenting with new modes that focus on shorter play, but whether a new one will join the lineup in April is anyone's guess.
Battle Pass Rewards And Weapon Skins
The new battle pass will cost the same as previous battle passes, 1,000 VALORANT Points, or roughly $10.
As always, we're expecting the following rewards in the Battle Pass:
- Gun Buddies
- Weapon Skins
