After much speculation and leaks giving hints at what the latest Valorant Agent could look like, Riot Games finally gave fans their first glimpse at Fade, the game's 19th playable character.

The dev team decided to slow down the release of maps and Agents as they looked to give Valorant breathing time to develop a meta with each balance patch. Now that Neon's release is over four months old, fans have been clamouring for a new Agent to spice the experience up.

Previous leaks nicknamed the Agent "Bounty Hunter" as datamining showcased Fade's abilities, albeit with no gameplay for fans to take a look at.

Via social media, Riot Games confirmed that after much anticipation, Fade gameplay will be shown during the Valorant Masters Reykjavík finals.

The developers had been teasing Fade's arrival with multiple ominous gifs of Valorant Agents shrouded by some kind of negative energy, alluding to Fade's leaked abilities that will see her become a nuisance for enemies by applying constant debuffs.

The Valorant Masters finals are scheduled to be played on 24th April. As mentioned, the showcase will include gameplay as well as a developer interview. No news around a proper release date is confirmed but expect information about it during the stream.
