Valorant Will Add a New Map Soon: What Should You Know

Riot Games announced that a new map dubbed “Icebox” will be introduced in Valorant when the Episode 1, Act 3 update arrives. 

Recently, the game studio has shared several teasers hinting that something “cold” was coming to the Valorant universe. Some fans thought immediately at the launch of a new map set somewhere in the arctic. And boy, they were right.

Riot Games has confirmed that Valorant will be receiving a new map called Icebox. Here is what you need to know.

Icebox Map Features

Valorant will soon end its Episode 1, Act 2, on October 13. And when it does, the Act 3 update will be available, and it will bring a few changes to Valorant’s ranked mode, a new Agent (rumored), a new battle pass, and the newly confirmed Icebox map.

The game studio showed off the new arena in a short teaser. As the title of the location suggests, the map will take us in an iced-over landscape. And from the looks of things, we will fight inside and outside of a frozen dockyard. 

Some massive ship containers and wrecked ships scattered everywhere can also be spotted. The arena resembles the map Split a bit.

You can watch the teaser below.

The launch of a new Valorant map coming this early it’s somewhat of a surprise. Anna Donlon, an executive producer on Valorant, said right after the game arrived that Riot would only be introducing new maps every Episode, not every Act. 

With that in mind, most players would have expected Icebox to arrive somewhere in Episode 2, over two months. Admittedly, Donlon also said that the game studio could deviate from the initial plan, but the fact that it’s doing it now is very unexpected.

Icebox should arrive as a breath of fresh air. Riot Games hasn’t confirmed if the map will be available on the day the Act 3 launches. We’re going to find out more soon!

Valorant is now available for PC users only.
