Valorant Introduces Yoru into the roster
He comes with some nifty reality-manipulation powers in time for Episode 2
Valorant has announced Episode 2 will be coming within the next few days, and with the new announcement, a new agent will be joining the ranks. Yoru will be the 14th agent to join the Valorant 5v5 game.
Yoru stands out among the rest as he actually tears a hole in space time to infiltrate behind enemy lines. He also equipped with abilities that will help players baffle enemies even more:
- Fakeout – this ability equips players with an ‘echo’ that mimics footsteps. The decoy can be sent first before the player to confuse enemies. Better yet – this ability can be activated immediately or after some time.
- Blindside – the flash ability where Yoru literally throws a fragment of reality which then flashes the enemy after a bounce of a surface
- Gatecrash – it essentially teleports you to a position you tag when you need it
- Dimensional Drift – Yoru’s Ultimate move – you are thrown into another dimension and you become invisible and invulnerable to enemies as you use it.
