Riot Games is keeping Valorant’s players engaged in Episode 2 Act 2, offering both a new Battle Pass and a new agent.
Tomorrow, March 2nd, 2021, the starting signal for Episode 2 Act 2 in Valorant from Riot Games will be given. The focus is on a new Battle Pass, among other things, which gives you new skins, sprays and cards for 1,000 VP, which were developed on the basis of player feedback.
Regarding the development of the new content, producer Preeti Khanolkar says: “Our community told us how much they loved the Polyfox skins, that’s why we wanted to expand this series, for example. As far as accessories are concerned, our goal was to have well-thought-out buddies, sprays and cards to create that really fit the world of Valorant, that emphasize gamelore and community memes. I don’t know whether our players are aware of this, but our unofficial goal is always to offer something that we ourselves are enthusiastic about to share it. “
In addition to the Battle Pass, the agent line-up will also be further strengthened. With Astra, a tactician enters the game who uses her abilities to use the energies of the cosmos to influence the battlefield according to her own ideas.
Character producer John Goscicki says of the new hero: “Our biggest inspiration for Astra’s theme was Afrofuturism. Once that one element was in place, the rest came naturally. Her ability to soar and ‘place stars’ is particularly important for them and there are many similarities between afrofuturism and space that we could use. From then on our task was to give their character and character design a believable background in the real world. So that everything is right, we have the details worked out with a consultant from Ghana. “
