Valorant's Episode 1, Act III launched today with a new battlepass.
WIth fifty levels of rewards to unlock, divided into ten ranks per chapter, there's plenty for players to acquire in both the free and Premium paths.
The variety of rewards will be familiar to Valorant fans: gun buddies, sprays, weapon skins, Radianite points, player cards, and titles. Unsurprisingly, perhaps, a chunk of the new cosmetics revolve around seasonal holidays as well as the new agent, Skye.
Some examples include:
The first Episode of Valorant is called Ignition. This third act should wrap up the episode towards the end of 2020. Riot Games has delivered on initial promises of new maps and agents. Skye, who will be released on October 27. She follows Killjoy, who was released on August 4. Riot devs have stated their intention to release six agents per year, one roughly every two months. Icebox is the first new map to join the game, bringing the total to five. We're anticipating roughly two maps per year, one every six months, which means we're looking at April 2021 for our next new Valorant battleground.
All players receive the battlepass for free, but you can upgrade to the premium version for 1,000 Valorant points, roughly $9.99 USD.
