New act release date
Episode 5 Act 1 of Valorant was released on June 22 2022 and is also scheduled to end on August 24.
This means that August 24 2022 may be the release date for Episode 5 Act 1 of Valorant. This depends on if everything goes well.
Twitter leaker @floxayyy detailed the release dates for the first three acts in episode 5 of Valorant which confirm the theory too.
The codename and full name of the new agent have been revealed in leaks and these are Varun Batra who is codenamed Mage.
However, there isn't much official information about the new agent but players have found some hidden easter eggs regarding his release.
Additionally, one big easter egg is a new drawing included on the PBE bulletin board which shows a geometric hand.
This could reference the water theme that players have worked out from his name which references a Hindu deity.
What should we expect?
Episode 5 Act 1 of Valorant brought out a brand new map called Pearl which had replaced Split.
So, for sure, one thing that we won't see is a new map or the return of Split.
However, Valorant did accidentally announce the new skin line called 'Daedalus' in a tweet which has since been removed.
