Update: VALORANT Episode 5, Act 3 kicked off today, so Harbor has officially arrived in the game.

VALORANT's next Act update is expected to arrive on Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2022, so expect the addition of Harbor to the game's Agent roster on that day. This brings Riot's tactical shooter back to its regular schedule of releasing new agents and maps after the developer decided to have Act 2 of Episode 5 feature neither a new agent nor a new map.

Just like with previous Agents, players will need to earn enough XP to unlock Harbor or purchase the tier to unlock him in the game.

VALORANT content creators will have a special gameplay event for Harbor, starting on Oct. 13, so expect to see new gameplay clips featuring the new Agent soon.
