Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 Release Date

The exact release date for Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 hasn’t been set in stone by the devs yet, but we can make an educated guess based on this Act’s Battle Pass.

Taking a glance at the current Valorant Battle Pass reveals that it’s set to conclude on June 21, 2022, which means that fans can expect the new Battle Pass to arrive on the same date.

It goes without saying that the new Battle Pass will also bring with it the new Valorant update. So, Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 update is likely to land around June 21, 2022.

Valorant Episode 5 Act 1: New Content

The Episode 5 Act 1 update is set to bring a plethora of new content to Valorant, including a new map, a new Battle Pass, adjustments to Agents, bug fixes, quality of life changes, and much more. Fans can check out the developers’ official Livestream on June 16 at 10 am PT to know more about the upcoming Valorant update.

Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 New Skins

A new set of Premium skins related to VALORANT Episode 5 Act 1 were just added into the game. The collection, called Neptune, features the following weapons:

  • Shorty
  • Spectre
  • Guardian
  • Vandal
  • Knife 

This skin collection ties into the whole “water” theme Riot has going on for Act 5 Episode 1 really well. When fully upgraded, each weapon essentially turns into a fish tank complete with animated pet fish. They also have unique firing animations and sounds, but those aren’t anything too special compared to other premium collections like the Glitchpop line. 

The Neptune knife is an anchor that when upgraded has a water trail on all of its swings. but has no unique animations beyond that.

Unfortunately, the VALORANT Act 5 Episode 1 battle pass is possibly the item we have the least amount of information on. 

As it stands, there has been nothing in the way of leaks, teasers, or announcements regarding anything about the battlepass – including what skins are included in it. 

Of course, as soon as some information does come to light, you’ll find it here.
