Valorant's newest skin-line to drop would be Forsaken in Episode 2 Act 3. They would be the dark-evil edgy counter-part to the existing Sovereign cosmetics in the game.
While the Sovereign skins showcase light and purity, Forsaken would be the complete opposite. When asked about the thematic, Valorant's Art Lead- Sean Marino, quoted-
"We really loved Sovereign as a thematic and had built some loose "skin lore" around the theme when designing that original skin. We imagined a world where a bird-like race ruled a kingdom in the clouds, with the royal family's guard using the Sovereign guns (instead of swords) to protect them.
We asked ourselves what would happen if one of those guards broke his oath, became corrupted, and was then banished. With that story in our minds, we approached Forsaken to be the dark side of Sovereign, which meant it was still beautiful and delicate like Sovereign, but dark, edgy, and ultimately tragic. "

Talking about the inspiration of the Forsaken skin-line, Preeti Khanolkar, Senior Producer of Valorant said-
"We wanted the connection between the two skin lines to be so familiar that the items in the accessory bundle are likewise mirror images of one another. In the cards specifically, the Sovereign soldier kneels in fealty and the corrupted Forsaken one rises to fight."
