Riot Games has revealed a trailer for a new Valorant map. Icebox is a snow-covered location somewhere in a harsh tundra landscape. It is going to be the fifth map released for the popular first-person shooter.
«Dig your enemies a powdery grave in VALORANT’s new map, Icebox. Take on the tundra when Icebox drops with Act III.»
This snowy location will be added to Valorant at the start of Act III, which will commence on October 14. This means that Valorant players only have one week left to claim rewards from their current Battle Pass.
It is rumored that the map will most likely have two Bomb Sites, both of which are identified by the numbers 1 and 2 on these buildings.
Also, there could be a sliding bridge, as we see here:
Furthermore, have you noticed this strange music resembling the sounds made by penguins? What does it mean? And why are the penguins so closely monitored? If you have any ideas, feel free to share them in the comments below.
We’ve also noticed many other intriguing things in this map that could possibly include vertical ziplines, portals, and boxes. The main feature of Icebox appears to be its elevation variations. There are not only vertical but also horizontal ziplines, which will appear in the game for the first time.
Previously, the developers said that new locations would only be released every six months. While it would appear that Riot has a new plan, it’s still too early to say that new agents and maps will simply rotate with each new Act.
