New dangerous agent in Valorant

A few days ago, Riot Games published a trailer for the second episode titled “Becoming”. The video showed a new agent - Yoru.

Finally, today Riot showed the hero's abilities by publishing a video demonstrating them.

According to legend, Yoru is originally from Japan.The new agent will have the following abilities:

  • Fakeout - with this ability, the player can launch imitation of steps in any direction, which will be completely similar to real movement.
  • Gatecrash - Allows you to teleport short distances.
  • Blindside - flash grenade, which is triggered after it bounces off the surface.
  • Dimensional Rift (ultimate) - makes Yoru temporarily invulnerable and invisible, allowing you to move and scout the territory without being detected by the enemy.

As a reminder, Yoru will be available in Episode 2. The launch of “Becoming” will take place on January 12. Besides the new agent, Valorant has an updated Battle Pass. Many people say that the season will end on March 2.

The players now have an interesting agent in their hands, who, if they wish, can become one of the key agents in matches. There remains only one question, how long will this character's first nerf take place.
