Riot has revealed the details of the upcoming Act 3 through a blog post dated October 7th. The new Act will bring a number of new changes to the competitive shooter including a new map, a new Agent, and a revamped competitive system.

While the new map is already confirmed to be a snow-themed map named Icebox, details on the new agent haven’t been made public by Riot as of yet. However, that didn’t stop dataminers to dig up game files in search of the Agent’s mechanics.

According to some dataminers on Twitter, the upcoming female Agent will be named Skye and will pack a skillset which is sort of a combination between that of Sage and Sova. Her abilities are:

  1. An AoE heal which she can’t use to heal herself.
  2. A drone which can be controlled remotely.
  3. A bird which can be used to scout out areas.
  4. An Ultimate which sends out three wolves to hunt down enemies.

This combination of skills is certain to make Skye a favourite among Valorant fans due to the amount of utility she brings to the table. Judging by the descriptions, Skye can potentially be one of the best initiators in the entire game.

The bad news is, it’ll take a while before we can see Skye in the game. The devs have confirmed that while Icebox will be available to play on the day of the release of Act 3, the new Agent will be arriving one patch later on October 27th.
