New map description:— floxay (@floxayyy) August 24, 2021
A top secret experiment site split apart by a radianite-fueled disaster. Flip the script on attackers with aggressive defender positioning on a new dual-biome map.
If you want to know all that was revealed in the last teaser, here is your article. I had also theorized that this map could be the centre of the Valorant universe, but these new teasers have rejected my theory. Alright, let's jump onto the new stuff.
The Fracturing bullet
This new teaser was uploaded on all social channels of Valorant. It has a golden bullet Fracturing into pieces and then Purple Energy comes out of it. Although the colour scheme suggests that it has something to do with Astra, I am pretty sure that it is a teaser for the new map Fracture. This could have been a great teaser only if the name of the 7th Valorant map (Fracture) was not leaked.
The last teaser image also had this string that said, 'Disintegrate'. So, the name of the map, Fracture, could be literally relevant to the lore, but we still don't know how. What is your theory around this? Let us know in the comments below.
A first person view from Fracture map
This new Fracture map teaser is the most recent one. It seems to be an inside view of the new map. It looks very similar to the central part of the previous teaser image that we got and could be from the same location.
Why is Blue Energy leaking from the center of the new map Fracture?
The map description says, 'A top-secret experiment site split apart by a radianite fueled disaster ', and if you look closely in the second teaser, the roof above has a hole in it and seems to have been torn and not been made on purpose.
So, it is clear that the experiment caused radianite to shoot a beam of energy towards the sky, which was so powerful that it tore the roof of the facility.
The new Act will also bring a new skin lineup in collaboration with ZEDD, a new battlepass, along with the new map Fracture.
What's new in Valorant Episode III Act 2
To sum it up:
- New map Fracture
- ZEDD Valorant skins
- New Battlepass
- Varnish, Nitro, and Artisan skins
The new Valorant map Fracture is to be released on 8 September 2021. That's barely a week from now, and we are going to see a lot of teasers. I will keep breaking them down, so stay tuned with us.
