New Valorant Agent Reveal Delayed Until Valorant Masters Madrid Tournament

Valorant game

Valorant fans eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new Agent 25 will have to exercise patience as the latest patch notes for Valorant update 8.04 have been released without any mention of the new agent or significant balance changes. The next agent is set to be unveiled during the final match of the upcoming Valorant Masters Madrid tournament, scheduled to begin on March 14, 2024, with the final showdown taking place on March 24.

While the new agent remains shrouded in mystery, the patch notes bring some promising enhancements to Premier, Valorant's in-game tournament mode. Players can now form teams and start competing in Premier at any time, eliminating the need for pre-formed teams before the tournament begins. Additionally, improvements have been made to the promotion division display, providing more clarity for players.

Weekly matches in Premier now feature replay protection, ensuring that teams do not face the same opponents repeatedly unless necessary due to limited options. Players are now limited to playing two matches per week, preventing roster hopping and enhancing the competitive integrity of Premier.

Valorant's Esports Hub is also receiving an update in preparation for the upcoming Valorant Masters Madrid tournament, where the top eight teams worldwide will vie for the prestigious title and valuable VCT points towards qualifying for the Valorant Champions Seoul tournament later this year.

Furthermore, the 8.04 patch includes bug fixes addressing issues such as incorrect information from KAY/O's E ability, potential bugs with Sage's ult and barrier orb, and improvements to abilities extending beyond the map's edge to enhance gameplay stability.
