Everything you need to know about Valorant Episode 2

Valorant Episode 2 has arrived. After Episode 1, Ignition, this new episode is called Training. Like each episode, it will be divided into three separate Acts, each bringing its share of new features.

We take stock of all that Episode 2 and its Acts bring to Valorant.


Episode 2 – Act 1

Start: 13 January 2021 - End: 2 March 2021

The first Act of Episode 2 brings a lot of things, starting with Yoru and a review of ranked games. Remember that contrary to what was initially announced, this new episode is not accompanied by a new map. Icebox was supposed to be the map linked to this episode, but its release has been advanced, at the request of players and for the needs of the First Strike.
