Apparently Valorant’s 21st Agent has already been leaked and will be called Mage. A very well-known Twitter account, aptly named ValorLeaks, sent out a very short but interesting tweet:
New Agent Codename: Mage | #VALORANT

Just four words that are creating a lot of hype in the Valorant community. But who is Mage, and what do we already know about the future agent?
Who is the new Valorant mage agent?
We currently have 20 agents in Valorant. However, only four of them are sentries and four are controllers. With Fade, another initiating agent was added in April, so we bet that Mage will fall into Sentinel or Controller class. At least it would make more sense if Riot wants to create a balance between the different roles.
Although nothing is really known about the new agent yet, there are already first rumors that the agent has even already been revealed. According to user LeanIze, Mage’s face may have already been revealed on a player card in the Battle Pass.

If true, Mage would be a new agent. The photo shows her with light blonde hair with purple highlights and a purple dress. She is also holding some sort of magic potion, which could indicate an agent with magical abilities.
Given that Riot has already announced new Agents through the Battle Pass a number of times in the past, it wouldn’t surprise us if the Player Card actually excited the new Agent called Mage.
New Valorant Agent Mage release date
Obviously, we don’t have a release date yet. I mean, there hasn’t even been an official announcement of the agent by Riot. However, one would guess that Mage will be released in episode 5 act 2 or act 3. Usually, Riot introduces a new agent for Valorant every two months and since we already received Fade in April, it’s time for another new addition.
Valiant Agent Mage New Abilities
Sorry, but we don’t have any information on Mage’s abilities yet. If we had to guess, we’d guess Riot is going the League of Legends way here, giving Mage some very colorful animations for his, presumably magical, abilities.
As soon as we know more about Mage, we will of course update this article and always keep you informed.
