This means that no games can be played from 6 am PT to 9 am PT. However, when this has finished, agents will be able to return to the game with all the new content too.

With the launch of a new season, the competitive queue will also be disabled for a short time.

What will the new content be?

A brand new skin line called Daedlus has been announced by Riot Games, although the tweet announcement was released shortly after.

Fans should also expect a new agent codenamed Mage with the real name of Varun Batra.

Speculations seem to think that he will be a water-themed magical agent who is of Indian heritage.

Valorant brought out a brand new map called Pearl which had replaced Split. So, one thing that we won't see is a new map or the return of Split.
