After dropping tons of content in earlier patches, Valorant Patch 8.02 brings back the Esports Hub for the 2024 Valorant while including several QoL changes for the game.

Valorant Patch 8.02 notes reveal some art update changes to Viper’s abilities, while incorporating new features for the game’s Premier mode. The Esports Hub signifies the introduction of VCT capsules, which are cosmetic skin bundles players can purchase to support their favorite Valorant competitive team in-game. The VCT capsules will be available at a later date. The game doesn’t ship any major content or cosmetics, but ensures that player have a good experience playing the game on PC and console.

Jo-Ellen from Riot Games detailed the complete list of changes coming to the game’s 8.02 update, as players look forward to VCT capsules and quite possibly, a new ‘female duelist’ agent in the coming months.

Besides, Riot’s Valorant team have also shipped an ‘art update’ for the Snakebite Shorty cosmetic. All in all, the light Valorant update might not have much in store for players, but improves a lot behind the scenes. Art updates to important Valorant agents and cosmetics along with major bug and glitch improvements make up for the lack of content in Valorant Patch 8.02.
