Riot Games' latest State of the Agents update gave VALORANT players more information about the new Sentinel and a brief look at the game's mechanics today.
Riot has been giving easter-eggs about the new agent for months. A well-dressed figure known as Deadeye appeared in June's Year One Anthem video with what appears to be a sniper rifle on his shoulder. The Fracture trailer earlier this month was told in a mysterious French-accented voice. In the trailer, it was seen that two shells collided and destroyed a reactor.
Fracture also includes two pistol holsters on both sides of the map, which are thought to be possibly trailer-used weapons. The character narrating the trailer is likely Deadeye and Deadeye's work, apparently causing the destroyed Kingdom facility in Fracture.
John Goscicki, a VALORANT character producer, revealed more about the new agent in the State of the Agents update, though not specifically Deadeye.
“We took a step back and considered different ways to add another Sentinel to the roster,” Goscicki said. “An additional weapon to the mix for an extra bit of beauty, a Sentinel with the focus of gameplay on mechanical performances.”
VALORANT currently has three Sentinel agents: Sage, Cypher and Killjoy. Another Sentinel could spice up the game.
Riot will likely continue to send cryptic messages about the upcoming agent for the time being.
