Valorant Episode 2 Act 2: Release date, new Agent, leaks, more

A new Act in Valorant means two things - a new Agent and battle pass.

Players are currently blasting their way through Episode 2 Act 1, the first of three Acts and the one that introduced the Japanese trickster Yoru. Of course, the start of any Act also marks the start of a new battle pass and thanks to this we have a very good idea when Act 1 ends and will Act 2 will surely begin.

When does Episode 2 Act 1 end?

As we stated before the Acts and battle passes are mirrored so based on the in-game information Act 1 should end on the 1st, March 2021.

When does Episode 2 Act 2 start?

Well... this is also a guess but an informed one as Riot has never deviated from the end of Act to the start of another. So based on that we can confidently say that Episode 2 Act 2 will start on the 2nd, March 2021

Update: More information has been revealed about the Valorant Episode 2 Act 2 battle pass including a comprehensive look at all the cosmetics.

What Agent are we getting in Act 2?

We can be less certain about this but we are starting to hear more.

What we do know is that Valorant's fifteen Agent will be the game's fourth Controller the same class as Brimstone, Omen, and Viper.

Riot has also teased that this Agent will be quite unlike anything that has come before.

"Our next Controller is a cosmic shift from the play patterns you’ve grown accustomed to," claimed the developers in a recent blog. "This one is for all you 'galaxy brain' players out there that like to study everything that happens on a map."

There are also rumours that the next Agent could be from Ghana.

Update: We now have a very complete view of the Valorant's 15th Agent - Astra - the rumours, were true she is from Ghana and her kit has some real crowd control elements. Check out our Astra abilities guide for more info.
