The game's dynamic nature keeps players hooked, thanks to a series of Episodes and Acts that introduce fresh content.

In this article, we'll take a closer look at the chronological progression of Valorant's Episodes and Acts, exploring the start and end dates, and anticipating what the future holds for Episode Eight next year.

While Valorant doesn't strictly adhere to traditional seasons, it follows a seasonal model, breaking down the game into episodes. They last approximately 6 to 7 months. Each episode consists of three acts, each spanning around two months. This approach allows for a steady flow of new content without overwhelming players.
