When does the new 'Valorant' season come out? Episode 4, Act 3 is almost here!

Update 4.08 for Valorant will usher in a new season, otherwise known as Episode 4, Act 3. The latest season for the game is set to feature several exciting updates. The regular Battle Pass rewards will include new weapon skins, Player Cards, and other cosmetics for a more expressive touch to your gameplay. On April 20, Riot Games shared a blog post detailing many changes being made to the agile South Korean agent, Jett. The character is being nerfed in an effort to balance her with other Agents.

One of the most exciting changes coming to Valorant is the brand new Agent known as Fade. The new Turkish Initiator character draws upon the power of fear and nightmares in combat. She can pinpoint enemy locations, immobilize her opponents, and even near-sight other characters to reduce their field of vision. She will most certainly become a force to be reckoned with as Valorant rolls out these new updates.

Valorant players are all too excited for the new season to drop. More specifically, the thirst for Fade is super real amongst the fandom. People on Twitter are already staning her hard with some hilarious tweets and posts leading up to her arrival.
