Riot officially unveil Breeze, Valorant's sixth map

After a few weeks of leaks and teasers, Riot Games has finally revealed the latest map coming to Valorant.

As we've already known, the name of the sixth Valorant map is Breeze.

Breeze is set on a fictional remote island located somewhere within the southern part of the notorious Bermuda Triangle, known for its mysterious disappearances of ships.

The environment of the map is quite interesting, as it features a lot of bright and colourful areas, in stark contrast to the current map pool.

Two main locations on the map are an old ruined fort and a large tropical beach.

The map offers several wide-open spaces and players who love long-range encounters will find this map to be a perfect match for their playstyle.

Sal Garozzo, Valorant's senior game designer, explained what were Riot's goals when they were designing Breeze.

"One of the main goals we had with Breeze was building larger and more open spaces with longer sightlines than the other maps in the pool," Garozzo said. "This provides an opportunity for different weapons and Agents to shine. Each map should provide different strengths and weaknesses for the Agents in the roster to explore while supporting different types of strategies and team compositions."

Key features of Breeze include:

  • Long-range engagements
  • Large open spaces
  • Wide choke points
  • Important territory control

The map is slated for release early next week, on 27th April 2021.
