Riot plans to start the new year with a bang as they line up the first major Valorant update of 2022.

The next Valorant episode is titled Disruption and will be the fourth launched by the company since the game was released.

And the good news is that the development team behind the hit shooter won’t leave fans waiting for it.

That’s because the Valorant Episode 4 Act 1 release date has been scheduled for Tuesday, January 11, 2022.

As usual, this new update won’t arrive for everyone simultaneously, meaning players in some regions will be waiting until January 12 to start playing.

But as soon as the update has arrived across all servers, gamers will have access to the new Battle Pass, Protocol skinline and new agent.

And while new cosmetic items are always fun to collect, the big draw will be Neon, the new agent from the Philippines.

Riot describes her as a character “who surges forward at shocking speeds, discharging bursts of bioelectric radiance as fast as her body generates it. She races ahead to catch enemies off guard, then strikes them down quicker than lightning.”

Neon adds a brand new mix of abilities to the game, including High Gear, Relay Bolt and Fast Lane. The full list of abilities and what they can do can be found below:

(E) HIGH GEAR

INSTANTLY channel Neon’s power for increased speed. When charged, ALT FIRE to trigger an electric slide. Slide charge resets every two kills.

Power Fantasy: Neon channels radianite-infused bioelectric charge into the synapses of her leg muscles, making them fire at supernaturally high speeds. This allows her to sprint exceptionally fast for as long as she has bioelectric charge to draw from.

(Q) RELAY BOLT

Official Tool Tip: INSTANTLY throw an energy bolt that bounces once. Upon hitting each surface, the bolt electrifies the ground below with a concussive blast.

Power Fantasy: Neon forces a burst of radianite-infused electricity from the palm of her hand. The electrical burst creates a brief field of static electricity that delivers a fierce zap to anyone caught in it.

(C) FAST LANE

Official Tool Tip: FIRE two energy lines forward on the ground that extend a short distance or until they hit a surface. The lines rise into walls of static electricity that block vision and damage enemies passing through them.

Power Fantasy: Neon expels built up radianite-infused bioelectrical charge from both her hands at once. The compressed electrical charges run in lines along the ground, then ionize with the air in a quick burst into parallel walls of pure plasmic lightning. Neon can run through this electrical tunnel, unseen by the enemy. Any enemies that pass through the lightning walls get shocked.

(X) OVERDRIVE

Official Tool Tip: Unleash Neon’s full power and speed for a short duration. FIRE to channel the power into a deadly lightning beam with high movement accuracy. The duration resets on each kill.

Power Fantasy: Neon unleashes all of the excess radianite-infused bioelectric charge she’s stored up in her battery-pack mechanism strapped to her back. The electricity surges through her body at uncontainable levels. Neon channels all this incredible charge into the tips of her fingers, then expels it as bolts of radianite lightning which electrocute anyone it makes contact with.
