Release date of ‘Sprinter’
The exact release date of ‘Sprinter’ is still uncertain. However, players can expect the new agent to hit the live servers on January 12, 2022 along with the highly anticipated Episode 4, Act 1.
In her youngest ‘State of the agents‘Blog post, the Valorant developers gave us an idea of their potential capabilities. Although the detailed descriptions of her skills have not yet been released, we know that her skills enable her to sprint and slide in and out of combat. In her reveal trailer, it was also revealed that she will have an ability with electricity.
The voice of the woman from the trailer can also be the actual voice of the upcoming agent. In the teaser, she points out her electricity handling skills by saying, “Hope you like being struck by lightning.” She also warns her enemies to “get ready” because she is “walking fast,” which can be another potential teaser of her skills, possibly her ultimate.
