Before you can jump into the Act to see everything new, you'll need to get the update downloaded.
It is coming in at 1.4GB, so it shouldn't take you too long to get it ready.
New Valorant Act 2 Skins
Once you're in, you'll see that patch 2.04 has added a whole host of new skins to the shooter. As laid out by @ValorLeaks on Twitter, below are the new skins you can look out for.
Elsewhere, the patch has addressed a frustration that was cropping up in Escalation, where players would camp to get an advantage.
Now, "Bind Teleporter exit doors are now permanently jammed open—if you want to camp it, get ready to fight for it!"
Also, Bind's pickrate has been returned to normal levels after it was reduced for the previous patch.
The patch has also added "Tactical Voice Over" and altered some of the heroes lines so that they're more helpful when it comes to coordinating approach.
