A fraction of the VALORANT 7.04 patch notes have been officially revealed by Riot Games. The early patch notes mainly contain Agent-related changes.

Riot Games is giving players a preview of what to expect in VALORANT Episode 7 Act 2. As Riot Games previously teased, we’ll be getting a new map set in Los Angeles. More information about the map will be revealed at the VALORANT Champions 2023 finals on August 26, 2023.

Aside from the map, there will be no new Agents in Episode 7 Act 2 because we already had Deadlock in the previous Act. Even though there will be no new Agent, the 7.04 update will see minor to major changes to over half of the existing Agents.

Fortunately, Riot Games has revealed a portion of the upcoming 7.04 patch notes, which include all Agent-related changes introduced with Episode 7 Act 2. The full 7.04 patch notes will include more information on balance changes, map adjustments, QoL updates, and bug fixes.
