We now know who the next agent joining Valorant (opens in new tab) will be – Reyna.
In a tweet and a brief video that shows her in action, we've learned that Valorant's 11th agent comes from Mexico. According to our friends at PC Gamer (opens in new tab), she was codenamed Vampire in development, which helps explain some of her curious in-game one-liners, which include "give me your heart" and "all dead, and I'm still hungry".
While the teaser wasn't long enough to give much away, it looks as though Reyna either sports some kind of invisibility/stealth mechanic, or she can obscure the vision of her enemies – at one point she cried "See nothing!" and a glowing purple eye appears on the screen.
Her ultimate is curiously called "Empress" but alas, she did not use it in this trailer, so we've no idea what it does. Yet.
