A new Act of Valorant is almost upon us! We take a look at everything in store for Valorant Episode 4 Act 2 including the release date, a suspected new map, and much more!
Few things get fans of Valorant more excited than the start of a new Act. The reasons for that are pretty obvious; a brand new battle pass to grind and a new agent or map to master.
The last Act was extra special. The first of 2022, it marked the start of Episode 4 and introduced the latest agent, Neon.
This Filipino Duelist has energized the battlefield – though whether she (or anyone can) displace the all-powerful Jett has yet to be seen.
Now, eyes turn to Valorant Episode 4 Act 2. From a new map to a brand new battle pass, plenty is expected from the next Act.

Valorant Episode 4 Act 2 – Release Date and Time
While speculation about what new features and additions could be coming in Act 2 are the basis of much of what we know about the next season, the release date is a fact pretty much confirmed.
We say pretty much because there could be unforseen delays (its happened before). However, if everything goes to plan then Valorant Episode 4 Act 2 will be released on Tuesday, March 1.
Downtime is usually minimal – even between acts – but more information about exact downtime and patch rollouts will be released closer to the time.
Each new Act usually introduces either; an agent or new map. And with Neon being added in Act 1, it is a new map that we expect to see this time around.
Rumours about the location of this map have been swirling around for several months; with a number of teasers pointing to a map set in Lisbon, Portugal.
In terms of evidence, we can point to the Episode 4 cinematic – “Warm Up” – which eagle-eyed players have seen features a map of Portugal’s capital city.
The map can be seen in the background behind Raze, as first reported by Valorant “Lore Master” Crynpel.
Further evidence of a Portugal map was found a few months prior, also by Cynprel.
A set of coordinates found line up exactly with Lisbon.
While an email exchange between “Auroa” and “Uncle Rueben”, places the former at the “Academia Do Futuro”. Translated from Portuguese to English: the “Academy of the Future”.
If these leaks are correct, and a map set in Lisbon arrive with Episode 4 Act 2, it would only be the game’s eighth map. The most recent addition being Fracture which debuted with Episode 3 Act 2.
Valorant Episode 4 Act 2 – Battle Pass
Each new Act comes with a brand new Battle Pass for players to grind and Episode 4 Act 2 won’t be any different. Players can expect to see at least three weapon bundles along with a host of player cards, gunbuddies and titles.
In terms of patch notes and any agent balance changes, there is just one major change to report. Yoru’s rework, long in the making, has to come with the release of Ep 4 Act 2.
The much-maligned agent sits as the least picked agent and with the hard work already done, Ep 4 Act 2 is as good a time as any to buff Yoru.
