Valorant: First-hand look at new map Breeze, plus cool as heck Forsaken skins
It's already Act 3 of Episode 2 for Valorant? Felt like just weeks ago when we covered the latest Agent (Astra) to be inducted into Riot Games' tactical shooter. For the newest update though, we're instead gifted with a new map Breeze that shakes up the meta. And eGG Network was given the privilege to experience the tropical area first-hand before its release tomorrow.
Located south of the Bermuda Triangle, the bright and rustic paradise introduces long-range combat in vast areas, as well as a few lengthy narrow corridors that encourage a slightly different type of far-range encounters.
Wow, we even have Malaysia's Rotiboy recognition here ... kind of.
Breeze also marks the debut of Valorant's first ever water-filled Spike site in Breeze. Glad to know they took the time to add water splashing sounds when treading it.
Plus, Breeze also introduces a chute access that allows you to surprise your enemies, with one caveat: it makes a pretty loud clank when opening/closing.
Furthermore, on the esports side, the brand-new map will be featured at the 2021 VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 2 – Masters for Reykjavík, Iceland from 24 - 30 May.
Another highlight for Valorant Episode 2 Act 3 is the all-new premium Forsaken gun skin.
It even comes with a killer animation when you eliminate your enemies. So cool.
The Forsaken skin can be purchased individually (Vandal, Operator, Spectre, Classic, and Forsaken Ritual Blade for melee) or in a bundle, which contains a card, spray, and gun buddy (7100 VP).
Valorant Episode 2 Act 3 goes live tomorrow (26 April), along with the Breeze map, Forsaken skin and new Battlepass.
