VALORANT’s next agent’s teaser has been leaked. Here is everything we know so far.
VALORANT, the hero-based tactical shooter from Riot Games, was first released on June 2, 2020. Since then, the game has gained enormous popularity in three successful years. One of the main reasons behind VALORANT’s fame is the constant support of developers by changing the game meta and adding new agents for fans to come back.
With Episode 7 nearing the end, we have seen two agents: Deadlock in Act 1 and Iso in Act 3. Now that the new year is approaching, so is a new Episode. As Riot never misses the opportunity to add major content to the game with every new episode, we can expect a new agent.
25th Agent Role: Will it be a Controller?
A recent leak is reporting a teaser for the next agent in VALORANT. The teaser is found in a player card from the Episode 8 Act 1 Battle Pass leak. We can see an image of what looks like a huge pink smoke. This suggests that the next agent is supposedly from the Controller role.
VALORANT’s 25th Agent: Codename
We still don’t have the name of the upcoming agent. However, Riot assigns a codename for every agent in development. It is not the final name, but something to call the new agent by. These code names often bear similarities to the agent’s abilities.
According to Mike, who has been a trusted source for VALORANT leaks, the new agent’s codename will be “SmokeDancer.”
VALORANT’s 25th Agent: Release Date
We still don’t have the exact release date for the upcoming agent. However, we can expect the agent to be introduced in the next Episode. As per the leaks, the next agent should be here by Episode 8 of Act 2, which will commence in March 2024.
