Riot Games released a video that announces the upcoming Episode 2, the next stage of development of the online shooter Valorant.
The new video is a cinematic, so there are no gameplay fragments in it. Nevertheless, we can learn a lot from about the future of the game. First of all, it reveals the identity of the next playable agent who will join the cast of Valorant. It will be the deceptive Yoru.
The first information about the character leaked in December last year and the new cinematic confirms their authenticity. Yoru is a Japanese man who belongs to the assault category. Nevertheless, his default gameplay style will be very different from other characters in this category, such as Jett, Phoenix or Raze. Instead of frontal attacks the new agent will prefer stealth tactics.
Yoru will be able to teleport over short distances, stun enemies, create false footstep noise, and even travel to his own dimension, making him invisible.
Episode 2 of Valorant will be made available as an update, which will debut tomorrow, January 12. It will include a new battle pass and additional skins.
Let us recall that Valorant was released in June last year. The game is available only on PC and uses a F2P model.
