Valorant Episode 5 Act 2

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.

Valorant is now in its third year of operation, having been launched in 2019. Valorant came with four maps and ten Agents in the beta edition and now due to its great success, it has nineteen Agents and seven maps by 2022. Of course, there are all of Valorant's battle passes, skin bundles, and game modes to consider.

Now coming to the new update in the game, Act 2 of Episode 5 will be the next Valorant episode having a new Agent and new map.

With Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 we got a new map - Pearl, along with a Valorant Prelude to Chaos skin bundle, a new battle pass, and a few balance changes. However, the update did not had any new Agent but it is likely that with Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 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 2 details, including its release date, new agent, map, and more.

Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 release date

Ignoring any delays, August 23, 2022, will be the possible Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 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 5 Act 1 battle pass ends a day before, that is August 22.

As far as the content itself is concerned, the least that can be expected from Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 is a new battle pass with the accompanying cosmetic rewards.

However, expecting a new skin bundle along with a new agent that is Valornat Agent 21 wouldn't be wrong as the previous update was obviously missing on the latter.

Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 - 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 got back to normal.

But once again, we saw a major factor missing from an update in Valorant Episode 5 Act 1. But it is a sure event that Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 will bring in our next Agent 21 as Riot can not afford to release two Acts without a new Agent and the company has promised to bring a new agent in each act after Episode 4 Act 2.

Earlier, there wasn't any info on who might be the next Valorant agent coming in Episode 5 Act 2, however, that changed with recent leaks.

Our data miners have already given us the codename of the Valorant Agent 21, "Mage" which tells us something about its possible unearthly nature.

It is ValorLeaks from whom we gain this information about the codename Mage of the 21st Agent in Valorant. And based on this name, there are some possible theories worth taking a look at that discuss the nature of this character.

Chamber and Fade, respectively, were the most recent additions to the sentinel and initiator rosters. This indicates that there is a need for recruitment as the controller category has been neglected for a while. Hence, we can rationally conclude that Mage might be the next controller in the game based on this concept. However, it's possible that the character will follow Omen's lead.

Moreover, Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 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 2 map

Now, before you get all excited and start anticipating new things for the next map in the game, we would like to remind you that there is no guarantee about Valorant Map 9 release date.

As you might well be aware, we have had many leaks about the Pearl map before it got released in Episode 5 Act 1, however, we have no info on the next Valorant map.

Now, Riot has a habit of releasing a new map every Episode, like we got the Fracture map in Episode 3 Act 2, then the Pearl map with Episode 5 Act 1; there's little chance the developers will be able to cram in Valo Map 9 before the end of Episode 5.

Apart from a new map, Split was also removed from the Valorant map pool ahead of Pearl's release in Valorant patch 5.0 on June 22, which makes it the very first map to be removed from the game.

Giving the reason for Split's removal, the developer team said, “The team thinks seven is a nice sweet spot that offers both variety and mastery. You don’t have to spend all your time learning new angles, lineups, and strategies. New players will have an easier onboarding experience. And pro teams get to have deeper, more exciting playbooks.”

Up to Pearl's competitive debut on July 12, the game's map pool will consist of six. And if Riot will follow the "LUCK SEVEN" policy, then it wouldn't be wrong to expect another map to get removed. What do you think, "which Valornat map will get removed from the game next?"

Well, with this we have come to an end of our article on the details of Valorant Episode 5 Act 2, the new Agent 21, and the possible features. We'll keep you up to date on the latest Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 news as it becomes available. So, keep visiting for more details that will be coming soon.
