Today, Riot has revealed through their blog that they’ll release the new agent on October 27th, two weeks after the release of Act 3. The devs said that the reason behind the delay in the release of the new Agent is the high demand for a new map among fans.
However, it appears like the details of the Agent have already been leaked.
According to a Twitter post by Valorant Leaks, the name of this new Agent is rumoured to be ‘Skye’ and she’ll be packing a set of skills which would be valuable for any team.
According to the leak, her abilities will consist of an AoE heal, a drone similar to Sova, a bird which can be used to scout out enemies, and an ultimate which will release three wolves to chase enemies.
From her ability descriptions, it’s clear that she won’t be much of a duelist. But the utility on her abilities will undoubtedly make her one of the best initiators in the entire game.
