With the teaser for the Valorant new agent here, an official release seems just on the horizon
As Episode 7 kicked off, Riot spilled the beans that they were working on some exciting new content for players to sink their teeth into. They promised two fresh agents and a brand-new map by the end of 2023. One of those agents, Deadlock, and the Sunset map are already up and running. That leaves one agent in the pipeline, and we eagerly anticipate its arrival. The developers have been tight-lipped about what we can expect, but they've given us some tantalizing teasers to keep us on the edge.
Valorant New Agent: Possible Release Window
According to the devs' announcement, Agent 24 is on its way and set to be released by the end of 2023. However, we need to be made aware of the specific arrival date. But if we take a peek at the release dates of previous agents like Chamber and Harbor, we can make an educated guess that Agent 24 might arrive before December. Unless, of course, the devs decide to switch things up and surprise us all.
What Role Would the Valorant New Agent Have?
The anticipation for the new Agent 24 in Valorant is growing as Character Producer John Goscicki revealed in their Episode 7 teaser that the upcoming character would be a duelist. With seven duelists already on the roster, fans are eager to learn more about their unique abilities. Despite the lack of details the dev shares, the excitement surrounding Agent 24's release remains high.
However, Gosciki has provided some hints regarding what can be anticipated. In a developer blog entry, he hinted that the agent would concentrate on gunplay, stating that, fundamentally, Valorant is a team-oriented Tactical Shooter where gunplay excels. For specific individuals, this entails striving to “Mow down enemies like Jinggg” and dedicating time to clicking those orbs with aim trainers for that immaculate 5k.”
He further added, “This next Agent is for you. We’ve also got a little twist you never thought would make it into Valorant.” Some of the speculations from the community also received his sly grin.
Gosciki maintained discretion as he has not shared any further information. We will keep you informed as soon as we receive any updates.
Gamers have been buzzing with excitement as the developers dropped a few hints about the highly anticipated Agent 24. One particular clue that caught players' attention was a snapshot of a mouth-watering Chinese hotpot dish featuring the exotic delicacy of duck blood. Fans are speculating that this could mean Agent 24 may have Chinese roots. The anticipation is palpable as gamers eagerly await the release of more clues about this mysterious character.
It's interesting to note that the recent official release of Valorant in China could be linked to the potential origin of the new agent being speculated about. Some believe the agent may have a connection to Singapore, given the country's strong ties to Chinese cuisine. The dev blog even mentioned a Singaporean player named Jinggg from the team Paper Rex. It adds an element of mystery to the upcoming release!
Currently, there is no definitive information regarding Agent 24's nationality.
A new teaser has players buzzing – a glowing purple circle that briefly appeared in the Defender spawn area. Fans speculate that it could be related to the leaked “Bulletproof” Player Card.
