Recently, the VALORANT community received a ‘ValorLeaks’ that allegedly featured an upcoming agent and their abilities.
This character reveal has been proven to be false and was leaked via a picture of a screen that included a description of the abilities of the agent. It was discovered recently that the ‘leak’ was a prank perpetrated by a member from the VALORANT community. ValorLeaks
According to legend, the Agent was called Mage and was a Controller agent. He had the ability create projectile-blocking smokes or slow pits, blinds, and a healing ultimate.
The image shown above shows the leak. For the eagle-eyed, there are a few typos and errors that can be immediately spotted by readers. The Agent was also blurred out, which indicates that the character model was still in progress.
A TikTok video revealed the truth. The person said that the alleged leak was nothing but a harmless joke.
The video shows that Cypher and his character model were edited out by the person and a new palette of blue was created. They also modified a few icons that were based on the existing icons and found a similar font. The text was also rewritten from the description of the other Agents.
This image was then shared on Reddit by the person, receiving more than 97% upvotes and more than 500,000 views. This post went viral on social media, and was later picked up by other leakers as well as media outlets.
This shows that even though they may seem convincing, it is important to take any leaks with a grain. Let’s wait for Riot Games, who will announce the next Agent.
First, the codename Mage leaked to the upcoming agent. We discovered that Varun Batra could be the new agent, and that their abilities may be water-based by looking at in-game details. We now have the complete extent of the new agent’s abilities thanks to a leak. These abilities may change, but we can now see the new Valorant agent’s capabilities!
New Agent Abilities Leaked Valorant : ValorLeaks
The new agent’s abilities were revealed through an image without an agent model. The agent’s appearance remains unchanged, even though the abilities have been drawn out. These abilities may and likely will change in the future. ValorLeaks
This is a context. Image of what was leaked was probably by QA.
It is strange that the agent model is not yet in, as Fade had her model by this point in development. Fade went through several changes before her release. Change is possible. pic.twitter.com/BNKDEGu8Bs
