Valorant Episode 2 Trailer

The cinematic trailer is based in Icebox where Yoru and Phoneix are fighting against Cypher, Viper and Jett. The fight depicts Yoru and Phoenix trying to "Retake" a site where the spike has been planted, which justifies the name of the Episode: "Retake". The cinematic trailer also gives a glimpse at all of Yoru's Abilities.

The announcement reads: "Reclaim what's yours as Yoru, climb the updated Battlepass, and more when Episode 2 drops on January 12."

Major meta changes coming our way

The description of the cinematic trailer released on Valorant's official Youtube handle, reads: "The game has changed." Which may signify the huge meta changes coming our way.

The meta change can be justified by the fact that there is a new agent arriving to the game alongside updates to agents like a Brimstone buff which has been confirmed by the devs. However, we still are not aware of the other changes and it looks like Patch 1.15 is going to be massive.

We will be sure to do a detailed overview of Patch 2.0 once it goes live until then stay tuned.
