What will Episode 5 Act 1 include?  

Every Valorant episode always brings in a ton of new content for players to get into. Other than the usual balance changes and updates, Act 1 of Episode 5 is expected to include:

  • A new agent hint: While it might be a bit too early for fans to expect another agent added to the roster with Fade just having been released, Act 1 is sure to include new hints towards who the next agent could be.
  • A new map: A new episode usually means a new map and seeing as ‘Fracture’ was the latest map to be released more than six months ago, players are ready for a change in scenery.
  • A new battle pass: Battle passes have gotten synonymous with the launch of a new episode, and fans are right to expect a new set of rewards and themes for them to unlock throughout the episode.

When is Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 releasing?

As we’re only just getting into Act 3 of Episode 4, Riot hasn’t shared any details on when players can expect to see a new episode. From looking at how Riot has previously released handled new releases, Episode 5 will most likely see the light of day immediately after Episode 4 Act 3 ends.

Riot usually tends to stay clear of any content droughts, and looking at previous releases, this does seem to be the most likely scenario.
