You know how vital your work as an Agent is. Protecting the world from interdimensional threats? I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t impressed. But wouldn’t it be wonderful if all your hard work could be translated into some sort of… reward? If I had eyes, this is when I’d wink because such wonders are here! Battle Passes are going live in VALORANT.
Take a look at the top bar of your screen when you launch the game. See that circle with the star at its center? That’s where you’ll need to go to access the Battle Pass.
Episodes, Acts, and Chapters? What’s what, here?
An excellent question! Episodes are a grouping of three Acts. Think of Episodes as an event in and of themselves. With the full launch of the game, the first Episode makes its debut along with its first Act. Ignition: Act 1 will go live with the game on June 2nd, 2020. Within each Act are chapters that you’ll progress along. It occurs to me that this could be confusing… Ah! Wait, I’ve got a picture!
There we are! So you see the numbers under Ignition: Act 1? Those are the chapters. Within each chapter are earnable rewards! Isn’t it marvelous?
Tell me more about the Battle Passes
You’ll have two options when encountering the Battle Pass: a Premium Track and a Free Track. The Premium Track will have 50 levels with rewards whereas the Free Track will have at least one reward per chapter. Keep in mind that you will get the rewards from the Free Track within the Premium Track as well.
The Premium track requires 1000 VP to activate, and you’ll also be able to purchase levels for 300 VP. Keep in mind that you can only purchase levels if you’re already on the Premium Track. This allows you to unlock content along the Premium Battle Pass at an expedited rate.
How do I progress along the Battle Pass?
Haven’t I mentioned how much we value experience? Progress along either track just requires you and your skills. So long as you are earning XP, you’re progressing along the Battle Pass.
You will not be able to refund the Premium Battle Pass and level purchases.
