VALORANT’s New Agent Harbor AKA “Mage”: First Look, Abilities, Origin, Release Date, & More

Riot has revealed VALORANT’s 21st Agent, and the character’s name will be Harbor.

After League of Legends’ massive success in the MOBA genre, Riot Games decided to enter the FPS market with the launch of VALORANT. Soon after its release, VALORANT instantly became popular for its unique novelty in the game.

Riot Games is well known for its marketing tactics for promoting its game to the mass audience. The company puts tremendous effort into building its games’ contents so that the players not only get to play the games but also experience the story and its characters.

Riot Games took its sweet time to develop and execute Harbor in the VALORANT universe. Previously, they introduced new characters after every two or three months (except for Chamber). However, Riot took almost 5 months to release Harbor. So, the expectation is out of the roof.

Although it has been really long since a new Agent was released, Riot has finally revealed information regarding the new Agent and he will enter the VALORANT universe in the next Episode 5 Act 3. According to the official news, Harbor is a Controller Agent with water-based abilities.
