Riot Games has been teasing a new map for VALORANT for the last several days, and they have finally released an official teaser video for the upcoming "Fracture" map. While there have been leaks and a lot of guessing over the last two months regarding a new map coming for Episode 3 Act 2, thanks to the open decoding image from the VALORANT team teasing fans. Today we have something concrete from the team, thanks to the new "Uncover Fracture" official map teaser trailer.
Riot Games are keeping their cards close to their chest regarding the new map, but the video does show off quite a bit of the new map, including what appears to be a volatile power source at the center of the map.
It's assumed that "Fracture" will be part of the Episode 3 Act 2 update, so we're assuming we will see it on September 8th, 2021 when Episode 3 Act 1 ends, but no actual release date has been announced for the new map.
According to know VALORANT leaker ValorLeaks (fitting name, right?), Fracture will be an H shaped map with defenders spawning in the middle of the map and attackers spawning on either side of the map. This will offer up a unique scenario seeing attackers split at spawn, and isn't offered in other VALORANT maps.
