As the release date of the highly anticipated Valorant agent Neon draws near, Riot Games has finally revealed the details of the upcoming agent. From the initial looks at the new agent, it’s clear that she’ll specialize in outpacing her opponents and clearing tight corners with her swift slides. Those, in combination with her lethal ultimate, can easily prove to be a nightmare for her enemies.
“Everything on her kit had two words we kept going back to on the design side to keep it cohesive,” Valorant dev Ryan “rycou” Cousart said. “These were ‘fast’ and ‘frenetic’.”
Here’s everything you need to know about Neon, including her release date, abilities, and more.
