With Valorant Episode 4 Act 3 being just around the corner, fans of the competitive shooter throughout the world are growing excited to know more about the new Agent – ‘Fade’. The developers have already revealed that Fade is set to be “a competitor to Sova” that can potentially outshine him in some aspects.
If you’re looking to know the release date and time of the new Agent Fade, we have you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about the release of the upcoming Valorant initiator.
Valorant Fade Release Date: When Does Fade Go Live?
Fade is set to be released alongside the Valorant Episode 4 Act 3 update. As confirmed by the Riot developers, the update will hit the live servers on April 27, 2022.
The exact release time will vary across regions. There’s likely to be a few hours of downtime between the conclusion of Episode 4 Act 2 and the start of the third Act, so players may find themselves unable to log into the game for the maintenance duration.
Valorant Fade Abilities
Fade will be an initiator in Valorant who’ll be able to scout out opponents, mark them with trails, and hunt them down with her Prowlers.
“Fade brings recon to a personal level, more potent in a localized area (doesn’t have mapwide potential like Sova),” Valorant dev Nicholas Smith said. “We wanted to keep the player close to the action and always in-body.”
Here are all the abilities of the new Valorant Agent Fade:
● EQUIP a nightmarish entity. FIRE to throw the orb which will plummet to the ground after a set amount of time. Upon hitting the ground, the orb will turn into a nightmarish entity that will reveal the location of enemies caught in its line of sight. Enemies can destroy this entity. RE-USE the ability to drop the projectile early in-flight.
● EQUIP an orb of nightmare ink. FIRE to throw the orb which will plummet to the ground after a set amount of time. Upon hitting the ground, the ink will explode and create a zone in which enemies who are caught in it cannot escape the zone by normal means. RE-USE the ability to drop the projectile early in-flight
● EQUIP a Prowler. FIRE will send the Prowler out, causing it to travel in a straight line. The Prowler will lock onto any enemies or trails in their frontal vision cone and chase them, nearsighting them if it reaches them. HOLD the FIRE button to steer the Prowler in the direction of your crosshair.
● EQUIP the power of Fear. FIRE to send out a wave of nightmare energy that can traverse through walls. The energy creates a trail to the opponent as well as deafens and decays them.
