The game’s next agent will have powers that offer a “intimate sense when chasing down foes,” according to a recent VALORANT State of the Agents blog post.
A new agent is on the horizon.
Riot Games character producer John Goscicki revealed in the blog post that the developers have had the idea of another agent “that revolves around the information gathering aspect” like Sova has been at the “top of mind” for a while.
The team worked on this concept and eventually “landed in a space that has more ‘localized’ initiation and recon tools.” Goscicki revealed that the new agent will give a more “intimate feeling when hunting down enemies,” giving fans their first hint at the new agent. The blog post ends with the Turkish phrase “Herkesin bir korkusu var,” which translates to “everyone has a fear.”
The teaser image in the post also shows a desk, likely belonging to the new character. A warm cup of coffee or tea is in the center of the desk, but fans can see an open laptop and corkboard in the background. An image of Sova is on the computer and Cypher is in the center of the board on the wall. It’s unclear how or why the new character is blackmailing other agents, but it will likely tie into their ability set.
Previous leaks revealed the codename BountyHunter has been added to the VALORANTgame files and traces of a new Totem ability were also added. The new agent will likely have unique tools to hunt down specific characters and gather information for their team.
Riot hasn’t revealed when the new character will be released, but fans will likely learn more information soon.
