Riot Games have confirmed that a new map called ‘Icebox’ will be coming to Valorant in Act 3. Set in the wintery tundra, this will be the fourth map added to the rotation, after Ascent debuted in Act 1.

If there’s one feature that has been at the forefront of Valorant player’s requests, it’s a new map. After the introduction of Ascent in Act 1, players have been longing for a new map to add to the already stale rotation of Split, Bind, Haven and Ascent. Now, the wait is over.

Coming in Act 3 (scheduled to drop on October 13), Icebox will be the fifth addition to Valorant’s map rotation. Based in a blistery tundra, the map is taking Agents into unknown territory — the cold.

Presumably, players will be able to play the traditional Spike-Defuse game mode, as well as Spike Rush and FFA Deathmatch on the tightly-packed map.

Caught in a blizzard, a ship full of containers is stranded. Based on the reveal video, the map will offer verticality like no other — with the ability to traverse zip-wires to get from specific regions on the map.

While on the surface the map appears to be tightly-packed, the reveal showcases a mixture of indoor and outdoor spaces, which will naturally lend itself to a healthy mixture of gunfights and different engagements.

Tightly packed. A small mid section of containers is all that separates both Attackers and Defenders in their respective spawns.

Given that the map appears to sprinkle elements of verticality throughout, players will have to approach both Attack and Defense with that in mind. So ability usage will no doubt be key in taking control of key areas on the map.

Of course, this will also give professional players the long-awaited map pool that will permit a best-of-five without needing to repeat maps. On top of the new map, a new Agent is expected to make their debut in Future Earth during Act 3.

Genshin Impact is home to loads of colorful characters, but you’ll need to spend a lot of Primogems if you wish to increase your chances of obtaining the game’s elusive five-star units. Fortunately, there is an easy way to grab a lot of Primogems without breaking the bank. 

MiHoYo’s free-to-play title, Genshin Impact allows players to explore every inch of its vast open-world completely free of charge. In fact, you can get through the entirety of the game’s current content without spending a penny. However, if you wish to increase your roster of characters and gain access to some incredibly powerful weapons, then you’ll need to score yourself a lot of Primogems.

These twinkling gems are used to purchase the game’s Acquaint Fates and Intertwined Fates, which are then used to Perform Wishes (Gacha). Primogems are also used to refill the game’s energy/stamina system (Original Resin), making them vital to both acquiring new characters and farming the game’s deadly dungeons. While you’ll naturally get this in-game currency as you progress through the game, there is an even easier way to add more Primogems to your account.
