Valorant Episode 3 Act 2's New Map - Fracture
Adding to the roster of our growing pool of maps will be a new contender - Fracture. It looks like they're going for quite a natural, mountainous climate with this one too, which is a nice way to break up the monotony of futuristic urban areas. You can see a trailer for the Fracture map here:
It was a cinematic trailer and we didn't see gameplay but that doesn't mean the fans haven't already started theorizing. One commentator suggested that the map looked set to introduce a new mechanic, and we really hope they're right.

When Is Valorant Episode 3 Act 2 Releasing?
As has become tradition, Riot will not waste time between the completion of Act 1 and the beginning of Act 2. So expect an immediate release at the end of Act 1.
But when is that going to be? Since Riot has decided to extend the current Act by two weeks, we can expect Valorant Episode 3 Act 2 to come out on September 8, which is just before Masters: Berlin.
TLDR; Act I is now 2 weeks longer and Competitive and progression adjustments will follow. Episode 3 Act II now kicks off on or around September 8, exact times TBD.— VALORANT (@PlayVALORANT) August 11, 2021
