Releasing alongside them on 27th April is also a brand new skin collection - the Forsaken bundle - based on the previous Sovereign skin line, this new bundle is a "corrupted" version of that popular bundle.
We'll let Sean Marino, Valorant Art Lead explain:
"We really loved Sovereign as a thematic and had built some loose “skin lore” around the theme when designing that original skin. We imagined a world where a bird-like race ruled a kingdom in the clouds, with the royal family’s guard using the Sovereign guns (instead of swords) to protect them."
The original Sovereign bundle was released in June of last year. (Picture: Riot Games)
"We asked ourselves what would happen if one of those guards broke his oath, became corrupted, and was then banished. With that story in our minds, we approached Forsaken to be the dark side of Sovereign, which meant it was still beautiful and delicate like Sovereign, but dark, edgy, and ultimately tragic."
