Valorante fans have been waiting a long time for Episode 2: Act 1, and it finally falls on January 12th! From the new Agent Yoru to a variety of leathers – new and old – that are making their way into the battlefield, here’s everything you need to know.
One of the most exciting things about Valorant is its rolling, episodic story. Each episode of Episode 1 saw a number of cool new features added to the game, so it’s safe to say that players expect Episode 2 to fall with a bang.
Between a new agent and a new match pass, there is no shortage of new content. Here̵
When will Valorant release Episode 2 Act 1?
Valorant Episode 2 Act 1 is founded for release on January 12, 2021. All the new content you see below will be available from then on. Patch 2.0 – the release update that comes with the episode – will also be live at the same time.
New agent Yoru
A new law, a new agent. Yoru joins the Valorant playlist as the game’s 14th agent, and the fifth duel list available to players. He is strongly focused on deception, with the ability to become invisible and send enemies hunting with the lid.

Valorant Episode 2 Act 1 Battlepass with 50 levels
Stick to the usual price point of 1000 Valorant Points (VP), Episode 2 Battlepass gives players a chance to paint through a variety of challenges to earn gun skins, buddies and other limited edition rewards.
There will be 50 levels, like all the battlefields in episode 1. There will be 12 pistol skins, including a set of variants for Infinity skins players can invest their Radianite points in, and a series of teasers for what comes in Act 2.
Act 1 Battlepass only runs from January 12 to March 1 which, although it sounds like a lot of time on paper, will slip very fast. Make sure you are ready to paint and grab all the specialty items before it’s too late!
Returns “Run It Back” skin line
With each new law comes a new skin collection, but this one has some familiar faces. The Run-It-Back skin pack is a collection of skins from previous actions that fans have shown their love for.
The package will cost 5,946 VP, and includes five iconic skins from Valorant’s past. These are Sovereign Ghost, Oni Phantom, Prime Specter, Nebula Ares and Spline Operator.
“We get a lot of messages on social media from players who started playing after the tracks were released, and who tell us that they check the store every day in hopes of getting the one special skin they want,” remarked producers Sean Marino and Khanolkar .
“This was also our way of offering a package that included five very different skins, so players who want a different feel and theme for each of their weapons can have that variation within a single package.”
If you just want to pick up one of the rails separately, you can do that. However, you will miss out on a 33% discount by not picking them up together. If you already own a pair of the rails, the price will also be cut dynamically for you so you can get the discount.
