The release of Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 is just around the corner, and competitive shooter fans all around the world are excitedly anticipating all of the new content that the new Valorant update will bring to the game. While Riot Games has yet to release comprehensive patch notes for the Episode 5 Act 1 update, we have seen plenty of leaks and teasers in the past to have a basic idea of what the Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 patch will bring to the table. Valorant will receive a slew of new content as part of the Episode 5 update. A new map, a new Battle Pass, and a number of changes to the existing Agents are among them.
In addition, the new PBE in Valorant includes information about the new map as well as new voice lines for Phoenix, Raze, Viper, and Yoru. @Shiick (on Twitter), a Valorant data miner, has extracted several voice lines from the new PBE for Episode 5 in Valorant. There are a lot of signs that the Pearl map in Valorant will contain harmful glass surfaces, and Phoenix and Raze’s speech lines specifically mention it. You can watch on video below:
Viper’s and Yoru’s phrases relate to a dome and an undersea city, respectively. All of this suggests that the new Pearl map in Valorant will be set in an underwater metropolis with a dome that may or may not be destructible. The voice lines that have been leaked all point to a couple of possibilities. The first is that the map, as well as the Agents’ voice lines, are all based on the underwater city theme.
