Episode 2 Act 1 of Valorant is set to go live this month, and Riot Games is hyping fans up with a new trailer! 

Riot Games has released a new cinematic trailer for Episode 2 of Valorant, and it features the new agent named Yoru.

In the trailer, Viper, Jett, and Cypher are shown going up against Phoenix and Yoru in the latest map, Icebox. The stealthy new agent easily takes down the sniping Cypher, and he manages to outwit Jett with his teleporting ability while Viper and Phoenix battle it out. Ultimately, Yoru was able to defuse the bomb. 

Watch the trailer above. 

This is the most epic cinematic trailer Riot Games released for its tactical first-person shooter game yet, but it's still unclear what's actually going on in the story. Hopefully, Riot will flesh out the game's lore more in Episode 2: Formation. 

Here are the abilities of the 14th Valorant agent, Yoru: 


Equip an echo that mimics footsteps when activated Fire to activate and send the echo forward, Alt Fire to place an echo in place, Use the inactive Echo to send it forward.


Equip to harness a rift tether Fire to send the tether out moving forward, Alt Fire to place a tether in place, Activate to teleport to the tether’s location.


Equip to rip an unstable dimensional fragment from reality. Fire to throw the fragment, activating a flash that winds up once it collides with a hard surface in the world.


Equip a mask that can see between dimensions. Fire to drift into Yoru’s dimension, unable to be affected or seen by enemies from the outside.
