Today Riot Games released a brand new trailer if the upcoming Episode 6 of its hero shooter Valorant.
The trailer focuses on the "Araxys" Skinline that will become available with the new episode. It includes weapons that appear to have belonged to an unknown alien race that mastered technology and knowledge far beyond that of mankind.
At the moment, the lore implications of this reveal are still pretty much under wraps, but it'll be interesting to see where this will lead in future episodes.
You can watch the trailer below.
Valorant is currently available exclusively for PC. Episode 6, titled "Revelation," will release on January 10, 2023.
The update includes a brand new map called Lotus, the lost city of flowers, which was originally teased in the cinematic trailer and then revealed in its own video. It's the game's ninth map and the first to be released in a few months, following the latest which was Pearl back in June 2022.
It's set in the Western Ghats of Omega Earth’s version of India, and it's inspired by traditional Dravidian architecture. It includes three sites and mechanics like rotating doors and destructible walls.
Episode 6 also comes with a new Battlepass including a 9 Lives classic gun skin, a Shock Heart spray, and a Folded Wish gun buddy, among other rewards.
