Valorant released Episode 5 Act 1 on June 22 alongside with patch 5.01. The new Episode serves as the next "season" in Valorant, and it came with new maps, a new battle pass, and some balancing changes. The episode's first act also introduced Ascendant, which balanced out Valorant's rank distribution. Ascendant has been great for players with lower ranks, as it gives them more rewards and makes it easier for them to get into the higher ranks.
There is still no official end date, but most Valorant acts end after two months. The Episode 5 Act 1 battle pass is set to expire, as of writing, in 44 days. As mentioned, Riot Games hasn't fully announced a set end date, but if they follow the precedent they set with the other acts, then players will have around two months to enjoy Act 1.
When Will Valorant Episode 5 Act 1 End?
Based on the battle pass expiration date, fans can expect Valorant Episode 5 Act 2 to start on or around Aug. 24. Players will only have about eight weeks to make sure they complete the battle pass and any challenges they need to the unlock items released this season.
