Riot Games Reveals New Fracture Map For Valorant Episode 3 Act 2

After a few days of teasers over on the Valorant Twitter account, a new trailer finally dropped showcasing the next map to join the game.

According to ValorINTEL on Twitter, the map has an H-Shaped layout with zip lines that run underneath the map, connecting the two sides. Defenders will also spawn in the center of the map, with attackers spawning on both sides. Check out the official trailer for Fracture below to get the first look at the upcoming map.

Valorant New Map – Fracture

On August 31st, the Valorant Twitter account posted a short clip of what is likely to be the upcoming Fracture map in Episode 3 Act 2.

This wasn’t the first time we got a glimpse at Fracture, as the Year One Anthem video released by Valorant also gave us a short clip of the upcoming map.

According to ValorLeaks, a reliable Valorant leaker on Twitter, Fracture is a top-secret experiment site split apart by a radianite-fueled disaster. Players will flip the script on attackers with aggressive defender positioning on a new dual-biome map.

Players can check out an image of the Fracture Map in the first few seconds of the Year One Anthem video.

Valorant New Agent – Deadeye

Alongside Fracture, there are rumors that a new Agent will be included in the Episode 3 Act 2 update. But, this is something fans may want to take with a grain of salt.

The first teaser for Deadeye also arrived in the Year One Anthem video, but it’s possible that he won’t be arriving in Episode 3 Act 2.

But with that said, Valorant released a cryptic teaser on August 30th which shows a purple bullet leaving its casing. This could be something unrelated to Deadeye, but many believe this could be related to the next Agent, possibly even teasing his Ultimate ability.

Although it’s unlikely a new agent is releasing with Episode 3 Act 2, the teaser found above has started speculation that Deadeye could be launching alongside the new map Fracture.
