Valorant Episode 5 Act 3 is almost over, so when does the new Episode 6 Act 1 begin?

With the start of the new year, Valorant players are looking for something fresh to see them into 2023. Through almost perfect timing, the end of Valorant's current Episode and Act is looming on the horizon.

What this means in terms of content is the brand new Episode 6 Act 1, and everything that comes with it. So far, Riot Games have teased a potential new map through a selection of animated teasers. A full reveal is expected to come tomorrow, on Jan. 5.

2022 saw three new Agents hop onto the scene: Neon, Fade and Harbor, alongside a new map. Whether 2023 will see the same amount of content remains to be seen, but something big could be rolled out later this month.

But as hype builds and Episode 5 Act 3 winds down to a close, Valorant players will want to know exactly when the next season kicks into gear.

When Does Valorant Episode 6 Act 1 Start?

Valorant Episode 5 Act 3 is scheduled to end on Jan. 9, which makes the end date next Monday. while the start date for the next season hasn't been officially announced at the time of writing, players can assume Episode 6 Act 1 will begin the day after on Jan. 10.

Riot Games confirmed the end date for Episode 5 Act 1 via Twitter, posting a graphic that announced the end date for the current season.
