With Valorant Episode 2 Act 1 fast approaching, fans are super excited about the arrival of the new Valorant agent Yoru. And on 03.01, there was a big leak about the new Valorant Episode 2 Act 1.
Included in the leak were: a new loading background, a new lobby, the entire battle pass, 2 new skin collections, and the agent himself. The leak came from a Russian man who had access to a private server with Episode 2 already downloaded. Most likely, Riot Games again created an online bootcamp to which they invited Valorant YouTubers. There is also a rumor that a player hacked one of the developers’ accounts that was on a test server.
Today we will answer many of your questions, starting with:
What does the new Valorant agent 14 look like?

It’s our opinion that this agent will be quite strong in clutch moments.
When will the new Valorant agent Yoru be arriving?
The new Valorant agent Yoru is expected to be released along with Valorant Episode 2 Act 1. The release date for Episode 2 has been confirmed by Riot Games themselves as January 12, 2021.
Footsteps can be very confusing to the enemy, especially in a 1-on-1 situation. And since there are two abilities, the enemy needs to keep an eye on three positions at the same time.
Yoru’s flash is quite ordinary, but it does feature a new mechanic: it only works if the fragment bounces off a wall.
His teleport ability will find a lot of uses. For example, you can leave the portal thread in one place and use it like Phoenix’s ultimate ability. But you need to be careful as you are vulnerable. A second possibility we found is to use the ability to teleport Omen.
When Yoru’s ultimate is starting to be used, all the players in the match will know about it and will be more cautious.
