VALORANT Episode 8 Act 3 is coming to an end soon. The new Act will go live on June 26, 2024, at around 2 AM PT.

Episode 8 Act 3 has been a pretty good chapter for VALORANT, considering it introduced a new map and a huge ton of balance changes for the Agents. However, the Act is drawing to an end, and with it, Episode 8 concludes its chapter.

There is no news of Episode 9 Act 1 receiving any significant balance changes. But that doesn’t mean that there won’t be any big changes coming to the game during the later part of the Act. As Riot Games is known for its meta-shifting tactics, we will definitely see some significant modifications to the game in the middle of the Act.

So, with all the anticipation regarding the new Act, when is it actually coming? Well, VALORANT Episode 9 Act 1 will go live on June 26, 2024, around 2:00 PM PT. Naturally, not everyone lives in the same region. So, to make your life easier, we’ll list the approximate release time across major time zones:

  • United States – PT – 2:00 PM
  • United Kingdom – BST – 10:00 PM
  • CEST – 11:00 PM
  • UTC – 9:00 PM
  • Japan – JST – 6:00 AM [June 27]
  • India – IST – 2:30 AM [June 27]
  • Singapore – GMT +8 – 5:00 AM [June 27]

The servers may go under maintenance a few hours before the new Act starts. So, if you haven’t completed your E8A3 Battle Pass, now may be the right time to grind.
