Valorant Agent 15 details: abilities, gameplay, more

Not much is known about Valorant Agent 15 yet. There’s been no leaks of their abilities or how they’ll look in game. However, we do know what playstyle they have.

Riot have confirmed Agent 15 will be the fourth Controller in Valorant’s line-up.

“We’re trying to push the boundaries when it comes to Agent abilities in Valorant, and so far, everything we’ve thrown at you has been less disruptive than we thought they’d be,” character producer John Goscicki told players in a February 12 blog post.

“Our next Controller is a cosmic shift from the play patterns you’ve grown accustomed to. This one is for all you ‘galaxy brain’ players out there that like to study everything that happens on a map.”

The hints Riot dropped have made it seem that Valorant’s next Controller will be somewhat space-themed, with potentially the ability to have a birds-eye view of the map. However, this is all speculation. More details will be revealed closer to Agent 15’s release date.

A recent Reddit post also went into depth regarding “The Bridge Between Worlds” battle pass card, which they claimed could be a hint towards the new Agent.

Considering two Riot devs responded, one of whom is directly mentioned in the conspiracy theory, as well as the fact that there’s something galaxy themed about this Agent, maybe their ideas aren’t totally unfounded.

First Valorant Agent 15 teasers appear in-game

The first Agent 15 teasers have been spotted in-game following Valorant’s 2.03 update. Brand new visual effects – currently being labelled as ’embers’ – have been found across Haven, Icebox, and Bind. There’s a good chance the other maps are also hiding away some secrets too.

These unique hints appear similar to in-game flashes but also carry a smoke effect at the center. Perhaps indicating that the next Agent will have both blinding and smoke-based abilities.

Valorant Agent 15 release date

As we mentioned at the top, the next Agent is getting released in Valorant Episode 2: Act 2. The current date locked in for the update is March 2, 2021, although this could change.

You can expect Agent 15 to launch on that date, or a few days after. We will keep you posted as more information becomes available.

A new Flashback SBC is now live in FIFA 21, with Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos getting a boosted card. Here’s what you need to know. 

Flashbacks are always a fun addition to Ultimate Team, as they let you grab powerful throwback cards for players that take them back to a special moment or a prime time during their career.

This latest standalone SBC celebrates Kroos’s prolific 2017-2018 LaLiga season playing for Real Madrid with a very nice 93 OVR card that could definitely beef up your midfield lineup.

Toni Kroos Flashback SBC requirements & price
