This is something a lot of other eSport titles have failed to do. This makes the game one of the best tactical FPS eSport titles out there. However, for a while now, fans have felt the studio could add yet another map to the mix.

Act 3 of Episode 1 saw the addition of the Icebox map into the game. There is a possibility that we might be getting a new map with the Act 3 update patch of this Episode as well. However, this might just be more than a speculation.

So, for now, all we know about this map is its name. Now, it is possible that this is a tentative title, subject to change later on. As for its release date, we can assume that it will hit the game at the beginning of Act 3 of the current Episode. Given when the current Battle Pass is set to expire, the upcoming Act might go online on the 27th of April.

But wait, looks like we have a bit more to go on than just a name. Another popular Valorant data miner, Valorant Express, posted a tweet with the loading music for this unreleased map. This data miner has further deduced from the music that this map might be “tropical/exotic themed.
