If you look closely at the laptop's image, you can see a wall of water, which provides us a hint that one of his skills will include building a wall out of water. Nobody knows for sure if it will be a solid wall like Sage or one like Viper, though.

Not only Valorant patch 5.08, but we also got info on the next Valorant PBE patches. It has been revealed that PBE invite frequency has changed. Instead of a singular invite wave going out to a small number of eligible players once every PBE patch, it will now be once every OTHER PBE patch.

This started with the 4.10 patch, but we are unsure of the date of the next invite wave/chance to join Valo Patch 5.09.

However, it was additionally mentioned that this PBE schedule is subject to change depending on what type of patch is going out and it is not completely set in stone.

The PBE is still going on. There have been no new changes to the Patch Notes 5.08 PBE as of yet. We'll update you as soon as we learn of any changes to the upcoming Patch Notes 5.08 PBE.

Obviously, these changes seem interesting, hence, those who are early waiting to see the Valorant agent abilities changes, bug fixes, and more should keep their eyes on the official announcement as Valorant patch 5.08 is set to release soon.
