VALORANT: What’s New in Episode 3 Act II
Crack open Episode 3 with the latest map, Fracture, where defender territory is as divided as the map itself. Also, Zedd stops by to drop a different type of collab with the Spectrum bundle, and there’s a whole new Battlepass. Expect a few Competitive changes too, like the return of Immortal 1, 2, and 3 ranks.
NEW MAP: FRACTURE
(SEPT. 8 FRACTURE-ONLY QUEUE, SEPT. 21 UNRATED & COMPETITIVE)
The Agents are due on Fracture. The remote Kingdom Research base, split by a failed radianite experiment, is marked by an H-shaped layout, dual-biome environment, and zipline routes underneath. For you lore nuts, lookout for the first ever interactive narrative objects.
To start, there’s a Fracture-only Unrated queue for the first two weeks of Act II, to help you grind before you put your rank on the line. The map then enters the standard Unrated and Competitive queue right after.
