All Valorant Episodes and Acts (2022)

all-valorant-episodes-and-acts-2022

Valorant is one of the most popular games right now, with it having over 15 million monthly players. However, if the game were to stay the same, then the player count would have dropped a long time ago due to burnout and boredom.

That’s where Valorant acts come in. An act is essentially a competitive timeframe where, when an act ends, the battle pass gets reset, and a new agent or map is released with the following act (most of the time). Three acts make up an episode and are all of around two months each, meaning an episode lasts for around six months.

Additionally, every episode brings a new cinematic trailer that ties into the lore of Valorant. To keep you all up to date, we will also be including official Youtube links to watch them after discussing the episodes themselves.

First, we’ll be going through all the acts that have already ended throughout the run of the game. To make it easier, we’ll be dividing all acts by the episodes they were a part of.

Current Valorant episode

Now that we have gone through all the previous episodes and their acts, let us discuss the one that is currently ongoing at the time of writing. 

The episode currently active is called ‘Dimension’ and is the fifth episode. It started on June 22nd, 2022 (as soon as the previous episode’s third act ended) and is expected to last till the middle of January 2023. This estimation is because it is compared to episode 3, Reflection, which started on exactly the same date.

As for the act, the first one has already ended, but it did bring a new map into the game (for the first time since Episode 3) by the name of ‘Pearl, the official description of which is given below.

“Attackers push down into the Defenders on this two-site map set in a vibrant, underwater city. Pearl is a geo-driven map with no mechanics. Take the fight through a compact mid or the longer range wings in our first map set in Omega Earth.” — Official description

Learning the ins and outs of a new map is always difficult. Fortunately, we have guides on both how to best attack in Pearl if you want to win every attacking round, as well as how to best defend in Pearl for when you find yourself on the defending team. No matter what side you’re on, Eloking has you covered.

Just like every other episode, episode 5 came with a cinematic release as well. This time it was titled ‘Shattered’ and can be viewed here.

Current Valorant act

The act currently ongoing is Episode 5’s act 2. Similar to the second act of Episode 4. However, it did not come with any new map or agent. Starting on August 23rd, 2022, it is estimated to run till the middle of October, with many players predicting the 18th of August to be the exact date.

Upcoming Valorant act

As soon as Episode 5’s second act comes to an end; the third act will start. As for what is to be expected, players are expecting the addition of a new agent (in addition to the usual new battle pass). 

If you’re interested in what new agent will be coming, we don’t have any solid news but we do have potential leaks. To start with, the new agent will be named Varun Batra (Codenamed Agent 21), a controller of Indian descent who, as the name ‘Varun’ suggests (likely referencing the Hindu god ‘Varuna’ who is said to have control of the oceans) will have water bending abilities to some extent.
