Valorant will soon launch its Episode 2 and introduce a new Japanese agent named Yoru. To celebrate, Riot Games published a music video. The video, coming from the Japanese arm of Riot, showcases a song performed by famous local rapper AK-69.
The video also features art by popular painter Masayuki Kojo and work by the media creative group Hanabi.
Episode 2 will also bring a new Battle Pass, and it’s coming on January 13.
If you’re unfamiliar with Valorant, which is currently available for PC, you can read an official description below.
“Blend your style and experience on a global, competitive stage. You have 13 rounds to attack and defend your side using sharp gunplay and tactical abilities. And, with one life per-round, you’ll need to think faster than your opponent if you want to survive. Take on foes across Competitive and Unranked modes as well as Deathmatch and Spike Rush.
More than guns and bullets, you’ll choose an Agent armed with adaptive, swift, and lethal abilities that create opportunities to let your gunplay shine. No two Agents play alike, just as no two highlight reels will look the same.
Each map is a playground to showcase your creative thinking. Purpose-built for team strategies, spectacular plays, and clutch moments. Make the play others will imitate for years to come.”
As previously reported in TalkEsport, the description of this new agent states: “Yoru can create gaps, in fact, to sneak into enemy territory. Strength and secrecy allow him to take enemies by surprise – they don’t even have time to understand where death came from. “
Yoru’s abilities were clearly defined in this latest video, where the agent seemed to be launching a portal that allowed him to teleport in trouble.
At the beginning of the recapture, we saw a Japanese resident place his final part on the territory of his opponent in a lofty state, only at the cost of his footprints found in the snow.
At the end of his final, he found himself out of the field and joined Phoenix.
Prior to today’s revelation, many knew that Yoru could be a time traveler related to the samurai on the Icebox, which was found shortly after the map was released.
Yoru is believed to have traveled to the past to Xbox, located on Bennett Island in Russia, to obtain samurai armor.
Yoru is likely to move on to the role of a duelist who will be involved, hiding and performing a kickback. The set of his abilities just works better for jokers and winning scenes, rather than for constantly getting input tracks.
