With the release of ACT 3 of VALORANT, Riot Games will be introducing another entirely new map to the game followed by a new agent allegedly called “Skye” one patch cycle later.

Icebox is going to be the next map in VALORANT. Since the VALORANT community has been asking Riot Games to add a new map in the game, Riot Games happily obliged. As the name implies, the whole map is covered in ice.

Furthermore, as with each new ACT, Riot Games will also introduce a new agent. However, this time around the map will release first and the new agent will follow at least one patch cycle or two weeks later. As the new ACT 3 will feature a lot of new content, Riot Games decided to hold off on the release of a new agent to make sure the release gets all the polish it needs.

VALORANT agent Skye first look:

Riot Games just officially teased this new agent. And some of the reliable data miners have already figured out what the name of this new agent is going to be. According to the leaks, the name of the new agent is “Skye“.

From the leaks so far it seems like Skye might be a healer type agent. She will have the ability to use AoE(Area of Effect) healing for her squadmates. However, she won’t be able to heal herself. Additionally, she will also have a bird’s ability that will be similar to how Sova’s drone works in the game. And lastly, she will also have a wolves ability similar to the wolves found in the spike rush mode.

VALORANT agent Skye release date:

VALORANT’s new agent Skye will be released on patch 1.10 exactly two weeks after October 13th. “We’ll be delaying the release of our newest Agent for two weeks (one patch cycle) after the start of Act III“, Riot Games on the release of their new agent.

VALORANT agent Skye nationality:

VALORANT’s new agent Skye will be an Australian.

According to Riot Games, the new ACT 3 will be the biggest content update in the history of VALORANT. So much so that they even delayed the release of their new agent in order to give everything another layer of polish.
