Are you unhappy with the lack of content in Valorant lately? Well, it's all going to change with the beginning of Episode 3 Act 2. Riot Games hinted that fans should be looking forward to the next Act. Here are all the details.
Valorant is currently in Episode 3 Act 1. Patch 3.00 was a big one, and it introduced a lot of changes, but not a whole lot has happened after that. Both 3.01 and 3.02 offered little to no content, with the exception of the two skin bundles – Ruination and Sentinels of Light. More content is on the way, but we'll have to wait a bit longer.
More Valorant Content in Episode 3 Act 2
The wait for more Valorant content is certainly not over, but at least there's light at the end of the tunnel. Valorant's Creative Director David Nottingham shared some details on Twitter.

Yes pacing is something we are aware of too. Often we are putting so much time and energy into landing those big drops (new agents, new maps) and then we barely recover before working on the next one.
Will have more discussions about what we are doing to get content to folk. Definitely lighter than I would like right now, but we are also laying down tracks for stuff that I believe will provide more of what you are asking for. Keep an eye out for the next act.— David Nottingham (@davidnotty) July 27, 2021
According to Nottingham, Valorant players should keep an eye out for the next Act. It's unclear what Riot plans to release in Episode 3 Act 2, except for the next agent, which was leaked to be Deadeye.
Valorant's content problems have nothing to do with the release of separate acts, but everything else in-between them. Once the big patch is out, there's almost nothing going on, except skins. The month of June was the sole exception to this rule, as Riot celebrated the game's one-year anniversary with plenty of special events and new features.
When Does Episode 3 Act 2 Start?
Unfortunately, Valorant's next Act is still a month away. The current Battle Pass is set to end on August 23, which means that Episode 3 Act 2 in Valorant will start on August 24. Before we get there, we'll probably see one more patch which will add nothing to the game.
Riot's taking the week of August 2nd off to disconnect and recharge.— Riot Games (@riotgames) July 26, 2021
Our 2nd annual mid-year break, along with our established end-of-year break, is just one of the ways we're giving Rioters well-deserved rest. https://t.co/eqtITJZTIt
Then again, Riot Games are taking an annual one-week break at the start of August, so they might just skip 3.03 as a whole.
