Riot Games is constantly updating Valorant so that it remains fresh for everyone. They have never let their fans down as they have always listened to their feedback. Recently, they introduced Act 3 of Episode I to the game, which has added some new content to the game. But at the same time, it has given data miners a chance to dig for some new information.

Valorant New Map

Act 3 has added a plethora of new content to the game, but the most exciting thing is the new map. That’s right, Valorant players can now test their skills out in a new arena called Icebox, which as its name suggests, has a snowy theme. It has zip lines that players can use to reach different locations, something which has made the game even more fun.

While everyone is enjoying the new content, data miners are busy doing something else. We all know that whenever a new update is released, data miners get the chance to find some new information that might have slipped through. And recently, a popular Valorant data miner who goes by the name “ValorantLeaks” on Twitter managed to leak something exciting regarding an upcoming event.

Snowball Mode In The Works

As we’re approaching Winter, players are excited to see an event based on it in Valorant. Of course, there will be a Winter Event, but the question is, what will it feature? Well, while we might not know everything, we do now know that there is going to be a new game mode called Snowball. The data miner managed to find some files that pointed towards this particular game mode. In fact, he found the words “Tag=Modes.Snowball” in four different things. This confirms that Riot Games is working on a new mode. The data miner also found files with the words “RapidFire,” “Skate,” “Growball,” and “Bouncy.”

At the moment, it is yet to be known whether this mode is going to remain permanently in the game or until the Winter Event is over. Other than this new game mode, we can expect to see a lot of new things including some exclusive cosmetic items. As we get more close to the holiday season, we can expect Riot Games to start dropping some teasers. After that, we’ll get to know what’s actually in store for us. All we can do now is wait and see what Riot Games is planning for the Winter Event.
