Riot Games has officially launched VALORANT Episode 2, Act 3, adding the new tropical beach map called Breeze to the map pool as well as the latest Battlepass that features 3 new kinds weapon skins and other cosmetics you can unlock.
The trailer, made in partnership with Dark Burn Creative, highlights Breeze but it also features various agents executing their signature moves in other maps, and the transitions look so smooth, it makes you more hyped to play the new act. You can watch the video here:
Breeze is the sixth VALORANT map added to the game's map pool, and Riot previously launched a trailer for it last week, giving us our first look at its long-range engagements, wide-open spaces, and a tropical beach environment. Breeze is currently only available in unrated, and it will be added to ranked matches two weeks from now, so if you want to try out the new map, you may have to join the unrated queue more.
You can also check out the new weapon skins, gun buddies, player cards, and gun buddies you can unlock in the exciting gameplay trailer.
Just like the previous update that added a new map, Episode 2, Act 3 doesn't introduce a new agent, but it's likely that the 16th agent will be introduced in the next act in June 2021.
