You'll want to know everything there is to know about the VALORANT new agents set to arrive in 2023, as in the June 5 dev diary, the developers revealed two agents will be joining the roster before the end of the year. 

VALORANT consistently adds new agents to its roster, with them debuting during different acts since the game's launch back in 2020. We now know that two more agents are confirmed to be coming to the game before the end of 2023, so check out everything we know about the new VALORANT agents. 

VALORANT new agents 2023: Everything we know so far

Details are currently scarce on the VALORANT new agents in 2023, but in a developer diary released on June 5, it was confirmed they will be a Sentinel and a Duelist respectively. 

What do we know about the new Sentinel agent?

In combination with the Sentinel announcement was a piece of teaser artwork (pictured above), showing the lower half of a character's body with a set of gadgets and tools laid out on a table. 

Executive producer on VALORANT, Anna Donlon, also teased a little about their kit, stating they "will stop you dead in your tracks and pull you in for a closer look." 

Since then, ValorLeaks on Twitter has revealed some information, though it's worth taking this with a grain of salt.

A teaser clip was revealed (shown above), showing a drone looking out over an arctic landscape. They also stated in a separate Tweet that the codename for the agent is Cable, and that a feature of their kit would be abilities based around cables, and manipulating them into traps.

Are there details about the new Duelist agent?

There's even less information to go off when it comes to the upcoming Duelist agent in VALORANT, as they received no teaser art or details during the dev diary.

Based on what we know so far, the Sentinel could be launching before the Duelist, with them potentially coming sometime in the upcoming VALORANT Episode 7, which will likely kick off on June 27. 

We'll make sure to update this guide if any new information comes to light. 

That's all for our breakdown of the new VALORANT agents in 2023, and now you know that one will be a Sentinel, while the other will be a Duelist.
