Valorant teased its new Breeze map this week and has now confirmed when fans will see new gameplay.

Not much is known about the new location, other than that it will be located somewhere in a tropical setting.

This is based on the few images shared on the official Riot Games Twitter, meaning there is still a lot to reveal.

The good news is that gamers won’t have to wait long as content creators will start sharing gameplay next week.

From what has been shared, new Breeze content will be shared on Monday, April 26, likely through Twitch.

A message from the official Valorant Twitter page reveals: “Excited to see the best VALORANT players fare in our new Breeze map?

“Competitors are busy with # VALORANTChallengers events today, so we will be giving all participants special access to the map on April 26, when they can stream and share content with our community.”

Riot Games has also confirmed that a new update is planned for later this month, with the following message:

“Our next patch will be out on April 27th or 28th, depending on where you are in the world.”

A new major update for Valorant is scheduled for May, with the Valorant Champions Tour 2021: Stage 2 Masters – Reykjavík starting next month.

Alex Francois, Global Head of Competitive Operations, discussed this year’s Masters points structure:

“In determining how teams would qualify for champions this year, we had one main goal: to make it the most competitive tournament possible.

“To do that, we had to weigh several factors. First, we wanted to make sure that we rewarded teams that showed consistent results throughout the year.

“However, we also wanted to make sure we appreciated the recency of the results – finishes closer to the champions are probably a better indicator of success than finishes months earlier. Finally, we thought about the fact that as we move into international competition, it gets harder to win Masters.

“All of this has resulted in our existing Masters points structure. We believe that the balance of lower points at the Regional Masters events, followed by an increase in the number of points available on the way to Masters: Reykjavík, and an additional increase in points to Stage 3 Challengers (along with the automatic qualifying for champions for the winning team)) will help us achieve our goals.

“It’s important to remember that Championship Points also count towards placement in the Last Chance Qualifiers, pan-regional tournaments that select the final teams for champions, not just qualifying for champions themselves.”
