We are pleased to see that Riot is following through with its promises. They promised that in 2022 we'd see a significant increase in Agent changes, social features, and improved communication with the player base, and it appears that this is precisely what the next Act will be about.
As a result, Valiant Episode 4 Act 2 will undoubtedly be a watershed moment in the game's development.
Although we won't be getting a ton of glitzy content this time, the Game Developers' goal is to solve the unhealthy problems that are not only a pain for players but also limit the design space available.
We've got some juicy information about Riot's plans for Valorant in the upcoming months.
So far, the first Act has been very similar to the previous ones, but the second Act will be completely different from the first. In other words, what do we mean by that?
What is new in Valorant Episode 4 Act 2?
No new Agents and Maps
That's right, and there won't be any new Agents or maps in the second Act of Episode 4.
Instead, you can expect a slew of updates aimed squarely at existing Agents and maps, which we're particularly excited about.
We'll be getting another Patch 3.0, which brought a slew of changes and a meta shake-up (during which Skye was completely unstoppable with her flash).
In Valiant, it's no secret that power creep exists, and some buffs, nerfs, and reworks are always welcome to keep the game dynamic and engaging.
Community Battle Pass
The game will feature the first-ever community Battle Pass, which will include cosmetics designed by more artistic members of the Valiant community.
Our knowledge of its official cost, release date, and correlation with the “classic” Battle Pass is limited at this time, but we know its content will be unique to each region, making it even more exciting.
Sprays and stickers will most likely be the only things included, which is a shame considering how much fun the community can have creating their custom skins.
As a result, Yoru will be our Episode 4 Act 2 character, as he is about to undergo a significant transformation.
It is known that Riot had planned his rework for Act 1, but the design team preferred to give themselves some time to complete their work, and now we have official word that all of his changes are planned for Act 2.
Yoru's abilities should be more about mental gymnastics and gain additional variety.
He's the first Agent to undergo such a significant transformation this year.
Still, we expect to see many more of these changes in the coming months, especially given that, as we previously stated, power creep is a natural phenomenon.
Improved Communication and Anti-Toxic Changes
Riot did an excellent job dealing with smurfs and AFK players last year, and we must commend them on their efforts.

Of course, these issues continue to exist, but they are on a much smaller scale, and you can notice and feel the difference.
Game developers are more concerned with keeping the game healthy, and game health includes not only balance but also the atmosphere that players experience while playing. After that, you can expect more social features, Vanguard updates, and features that reward good player behavior in the upcoming Act of Valor.
What is the Release Date?
On Tuesday, March 1, when the first Act of Episode 4 concludes, if all goes according to plan, we'll get Episode 4 Act 2 and all the features we described. As is customary when new Acts are introduced to the game, we can expect a new skin line to be released simultaneously.
