Valorant on their YouTube channel, revealed their new agent’s first look, YORU.

Ahead of Valorant’s next Episode, game developers today revealed the upcoming agent which will feature in their next update. Yoru, a native japanese agent has officially been shown in action in the latest video by Valorant.

As reported earlier by TalkEsport, the description of this brand new agent states, “ “Yoru can create gaps, in reality, itself to sneak into enemy territory unnoticed. Strength and stealth allow him to take enemies by surprise – they won’t even have time to understand where death came from.”

Yoru’s abilities have clearly been defined in this latest video where the agent seemed to trigger a portal that allowed him to teleport when in trouble.

At the start of the retake, we saw the Japanese inhabitant deploy his ultimate into his opponent’s territory in a sublime state, only at the cost of his footprints being revealed in the snow.

At the end of his ultimate, he revealed himself from the realm and joined Phoenix in the action.

Before today’s reveal, it was known by many that Yoru might be a time traveler who’s related to the samurai on Icebox which was discovered soon after the map’s release.

According to the speculations, Yoru time traveled from the past to Icebox, which is located in Bennett Island, Russia to retrieve the samurai armor.

Yoru will probably transition to depict a duelist role who will engage while lurking and performing a back-stab. His ability set simply works better for joker plays and round-winning scenes rather than for consistently getting entry frags.

Valorant Yoru’s abilities:

  • Z: Creates the sound of fake footsteps in a specific direction. Players can use ‘Fire’ to send it ahead or pre-place it with Alt-Fire, then press F to send it ahead.
  • X: Temporarily blinds enemies looking towards it. Players can press ‘Fire’ to throw it. It will pop after contacting the surface.
  • C: Places a Portal that can be sent ahead and teleported through. Press the ability button to place Portal, press ‘Fire’ to send Portal ahead, anchor Portal with Alt-Fire. Press ‘Activate’ to teleport through the Portal.
  • Q (Ultimate): Press ‘Fire’ to become invisible for enemies and invulnerable while being able to move freely.
