Valorant Act II is about to end soon, and Act III will begin in October 2020. Now, Riot Games has revealed that a new map, agent and more are coming to the game.
MAP: ICEBOX (13 October 2020 UNRATED, 27 October 2020 COMPETITIVE)
An abandoned Kingdom research facility in the arctic wilderness is the next location to flex your aim and abilities. Pierce the dense snow cover as an Attacker to plant the Spike. And, outplay as Defender using ziplines to reach new and dangerous heights.
The two objective sites on Icebox favour frequent skirmishes, sharp aim, and adaptive play.
COMPETITIVE REFRESH (13 October 2020)
These Act III Competitive changes hope to make your Rank climb tighter as we work on the long term health of organized team play:
- Upgrade that Act Rank Badge with the next Competitive Act
- Rank queue lowered from 6 tiers to 3 tiers, for tighter matchmaking
- Select your preferred server and improve your ping
- Immortal+ rank outcomes are decided 100% by wins and losses
ACT III BATTLEPASS (13 October 2020)
The Battlepass returns with improvements for Act III—revamped weekly mission progress for faster unlocks and additional Epilogue tiers.
Collect heads, rake in the XP, then snap on Act III exclusives like the “Chilly McFreeze” Gun Buddy to match your arctic battles, the “Radianite Hazard” Player Card, and the Viper Spray that reminds you to wash your hands.
Purchase the Act III Premium Battlepass to unlock more tiers of VALORANT items like the Ruin Vandal, “Disco Ball” Gun Buddy, and the Surge Bucky (with variants!).
WEAPON SKIN: SINGULARITY (13 October 2020)
Singularity exists in a far future, vast in its journey from the beyond. Powerful, abstract, and mysterious. None know where it came from or how it came to be.
Harness its unstable force on the Phantom, Sheriff, Spectre, Ares, and Melee when you buy the Singularity bundle.
GUN BUDDY: WELCOME, MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA (28 October 2020)
More (low ping) challengers to the Radiant throne have arrived from the Middle East and North Africa.
