As the new year unfolds, Valorant fans are eagerly awaiting the introduction of the next agent in the popular tactical shooter. Fans are buzzing with curiosity about who the upcoming Valorant agent will be, along with their role and abilities within the Valorant protocol. If you happen to be one of those eager fans, you’re in luck, as we’re here to provide you with all the latest details on the upcoming agent, known as Valorant Agent 25 – SmokeDancer.
Riot Games has a tradition of introducing three agents each year to maintain balance in the roster meta. Additionally, they often release new maps, rotate existing ones, and implement various changes to the meta.
Just a few months ago, we witnessed the arrival of ISO, a duelist from China. Preceding that, Riot launched Gekko and Deadlock. Now, all eyes are on Agent 24. Without further ado, let’s dive into the details.
Valorant Agent 25 abilties
As of now, there is not any concrete evidence regarding the Valorant Agent 24 abilities. However, based on some reports by the gameleap Smokedancer will rock some vibrant pink powers involving smoke. As a Controller, He’ll likely specialize in messing with enemy vision and taking charge of spaces. The smoky stuff might even throw opponents off balance by making them feel all disoriented and hypnotized.
In the last year, we have already got Gekko who is serving as Initiator, Deadlock as Sentinel, and finally ISO as duelist. So, it is highly likely now we can see an upcoming agent in the Controller role. This was also hinted at by popular Valorant leaker Mike where he shared Episode 8 Act 1’s Battle Pass card depicting smoke which can highly be related to controlers.

While it’s essential not to generalize, the combination of a pink theme and butterfly imagery could potentially suggest a feminine touch. So, does it mean, the next valorant agent is a female? Let me leave it up to you to decide until more details come.
Expected release window
It is anticipated that Smokedancer will be introduced in conjunction with Episode 8 Act 2, tentatively scheduled for release on March 6, 2024.
