Valorant Episode 5 Act 1

When Riot Games first launched the beta version of their free-to-play first-person hero shooter video game Valorant in 2020, it went on to amass the second most concurrent viewers for any game ever on Twitch, with 1.73 million viewers tuning in across dozens of streams. Since then, it has been on the path to success, with Riot Games pumping out new content every now and then.

It is now entering the third year since it launched for the first time in 2019. Initially, in the beta version, Valorant had four maps and ten Agents. Now, owing to its massive success, by 2022, it has nineteen Agents and seven maps. Of course, one cannot forget about all the battle passes, skin bundles, and game modes that Valorant sports.

Now coming to the new update in the game, Act 1 of Episode 5 will be the next Valorant episode having a new Agent and new map.

With Valorant Episode 4 Act 3 we got a new Turkish agent Fade, along with a Valorant RZX Pro 2.0 skin bundle, a new battle pass, and a few balance changes. However, it is likely that with Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 both a new Agent and a new map will be added to the game.

Let's head over to all the Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 details, including its release date, new agent, map, and more.

Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 release date

Ignoring any delays, June 22, 2022, will be the possible Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 release date. This release date is can be deduced from the fact that Riot Games has always been consistent with new content for this game and the Episode 4 Act 3 battle pass ends a day before, that is June 21.

As far as the content itself is concerned, the least that can be expected from Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 is a new battle pass with the accompanying cosmetic rewards.

Valorant Episode 5 Livestream

Riot will hold a developer Livestream on June 16, 2022, as part of the Valorant Episode 5 premiere. The Valo Episode 5 Act 1 Livestream can be viewed at:

  • 10 a.m. PT

Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 - Valorant Agent 21

Episode 4 Act 2 was the very first big Valorant update without a new Agent, however, with Episode 4 Act 3, Riot has got back to normal.

Currently, we have no info on who might be the next Valorant agent coming in Episode 5 Act 1, however, we are sure that Valorant Agent 21 will be introduced in Episode 5 Act 1 as Riot has promised to bring a new agent in each act after Episode 4 Act 2, so stay tuned.

Moreover, Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 will have the same 50-tier battle pass, which will include sprays, skins, Radianite Points, and more. A skin bundle will most likely be released at the same time as the new Episode's release.

Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 map - Valorant Map 8

Since the release of Fracture in Episode 3 Act 2, Valorant's eighth map has been teased. However, we didn't get any new map in Episode 4 Act 3, and considering Riot's habit of releasing a new map every Episode, there's little chance they'll be able to cram one in before the end of Episode 4.

A new map is the only piece of content for Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 that has been confirmed. For months, the map, nicknamed "Pitt," has been swirling about Valorant mythology. Riot has suggested a "city-wide geo dome" being built to control the high tides — and given the abundance of aquarium references, this could be real.

Given the lack of fresh content in Act 2, it's plausible that we will have a new Valorant map soon, but we don't know much about the battleground. There's not much else outside emails mentioning a "city-wide geo-dome" in South America (or even Portugal).
