Valorant’s New “Fracture” Map Will Force A Different Playstyle

Riot Games has announced on Wednesday that a new map is coming to Valorant. Called Fracture, the map is supposed to be a game-changer in balancing, as it imbues a different mentality and approach, unlike so far. Teams will have to think twice before they storm into their ordinary tactics like on other maps. The gameplay will differ on Fracture, as it looks more balanced than others.

The official teaser for Fracture has been published today on Valoran’ts official YouTube channel. The map is shaped like the letter “H.” It also introduces different spawn points. The middle section is where the defenders spawn, choosing to defend the two bomb sites placed on the left and right sides of the map, while attackers will have a wide array of choices at their hands.

The first narrated map with decent lore. Being shaped like “H” actually means that the map features two mirror versions of reality which could grow to be the beginning of extensive game lore.

Unlike other maps, this map has its own underbelly, accessible through zip lines that lead underground, which should fall in favor of the attackers and their transition. It’s definitely a fascinating map heading to Valorant. Fracture is coming to Valorant as a part of the update 3.05, estimated to arrive during the next week as part of a new Act.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
