Yoru, VALORANT’s latest Agent, and all of his abilities have been revealed ahead of Episode 2 Part 1.

Last year, Riot Games announced that they are planning to bring six new agents each year in VALORANT and will release at least one agent for every Act. As VALORANT Episode 2 Part 1 is just around the corner, players also expect to see a new Agent.

However, Riot has been teasing Agent 14 for months now. First, VALORANT Brazil’s Twitter account revealed a sneak peek of the new Agent, and later, the data miner confirmed that the new character is a stealth Agent.
