It appears to be like to be like admire the leak used to be correct: Valorant‘s subsequent agent is a tricksy teleporter named Yoru. The persona used to be unofficially published by a Russian YouTube channel earlier this week, however now Rebellion Games accept as true with made him favorable. Edgy lad Yoru is plot to debut within the tactical FPS subsequent week on January 12th, which correct so occurs to be the begin date of the sport’s novel Episode and Act to boot.
Episode 2 Act 1 will introduce a brand novel battle go, apart from Yoru, a brand novel infiltrating duelist. Judging from his bio, he sounds admire he’ll be some correct stealthy fun (although I don’t esteem playing in opposition to him):
“Eastern native Yoru rips holes straight through reality to infiltrate enemy lines unseen. The use of deception and aggression in equal measure, he will get the drop on every purpose earlier than they know where to derive out about.”
In an announcement, Rebellion accept as true with given the cumbersome lo-down on his abilities too. The first is Fakeout, which fires out some ghosty footsteps that mimic the noise characters catch when they stomp spherical. Subsequent is Gatecrash, a go which fires out a “rift tether” that Yoru can teleport to (it jogs my memory a little little bit of the translocator Sombra makes use of in Overwatch).
He also has a flash skill known as Blindside. This throws a little bit ball of rift energy out, which has to hit a wall for the flash to pop. Then his ideal skill is named Dimensional Drift, which makes him entirely invisible and invulnerable to enemies (kinda admire Apex Legends’ Wraith’s tactical skill, Into The Void).
I’m severely furious by that footstep skill of his. I most incessantly derive myself with teammates who correct appear to must stomp spherical far and huge, so per chance from subsequent week enemy teams will correct think it’s a stealthy Yoru using Fakeout. At least, I’m hoping here is the case.
This novel Episode and Act approach with a brand novel battle go as effectively, with 12 rather a gigantic selection of gun skins to manufacture, and a load of gun associates, sprays and rather a gigantic selection of stuff. It’ll cost you 1000 Valorant Capabilities (which cost spherical £10/$10 to come to a decision on).
Episode 2 Act 1 kicks off on Tuesday the 12th of January, and runs until March 1st.
