Sunset will be a two-site and three lanes map and is focussed on taking mid-control. Apart from this, it will feature several LA cultural staples including food trucks, art deco and mission style architecture, traffic, graffiti - features a few local LA artists, and neon sunset.
Sunset is "generally good for rifle ranges and opens up a bunch of opportunities for whichever team can take it. We expect to see both teams make mid control a central part of their strategy on Sunset," said Joe Lansford, Lead Map Designer.
The map will be first available in Swiftplay mode only and will then later be released for competitive and unrated modes with the release of Valorant patch 7.05 and will replace Fracture and Pearl in the map pool.
