The ongoing Valorant Episode 8 Act 1 was released on 9th January 2024 which makes it the first major update for the game this year.

Act 1 of Episode 8 introduced plenty of exciting things for the players to enjoy like a new sniper rifle called Outlaw, plenty of beautifully crafted bundles, the highly-anticipated Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) Team Capsules, a new seven-map pool with Icebox making a return, a couple of agent tweaks, and the start of the 2024 competitive season.

However, all good things must come to an end. This is the last week of Episode 8 Act 1, which means those who have not completed their battle pass need to hurry or they might lose out on the stunning melee weapon!

Episode 8 Act 1 is about to complete two months since its release and the excitement has started to build up for the upcoming Episode 8 Act 2 which is scheduled to come out in less than a week.

This also means that the current battle pass is about to expire, paving the way for another one to replace it, stacked with new skins, items, and radianite points.

Though no leaks have been made so far about the next battle pass and we have limited information to offer on that front, at least we know when the current season will be concluding.

The ongoing Valorant Episode 8 Act 1 which started on 9th January 2024, Tuesday is expected to conclude on 5th March 2024, Tuesday, running for a total duration of 56 days.
