Valorant Act III is just around the corner and one of the biggest things that fans and players are looking forward to is the new map. Icebox is quite different from the previous maps like Ascent due to its location and other interactive elements.

Here is what you should know about the new map Icebox.

Valorant Act III New Map Icebox

The new map is designed in such a way where skirmishes and skill are emphasized. Long sightlines will encourage skirmishing between teams and possibly provoke more sniper expression. There will also be ample amounts of cover and a new feature that has not been implemented in previous maps. A zipline has been added that will allow players to traverse the map in an effective way. Games like Fortnite and Call of Duty: Warzone has implemented zip lines before and found great success.

The map will feature two bombsites similar to Bind, Ascent, and Split. It is yet to be seen where the zip line will take players on the map or how far it will take players. However, this addition to the game is sure to add a new level, quite literally, to Valorant Act III gameplay. Icebox will release on Oct. 13 along with the rest of Act III content excluding Skye, the new agent.
