Get ready and load up your Valorant Points as Riot Games is all set to bring out a lot of exciting updates with the Episode 2: Act 3 a new map, next battle pass but along with all of these one more thing to be excited about is the new collection, the darker version of the infamous Sovereign skins. This Forsaken bundle includes skins for Vandal, Operator, Spectre, Classic and a Melee called 'Ritual Blade' which will cost 7,100 VP which also includes a player card, spray and gun buddy.
Here's what the Art Lead Sean Marino has to say about his vision while working on Forsaken
“We imagined a world where a bird-like race ruled a kingdom in the clouds, with the royal family’s guard using the Sovereign guns (instead of swords) to protect them. We asked ourselves what would happen if one of those guards broke his oath, became corrupted, and was then banished.”

This new collection goes into the Premium Edition according to the price tier which is 7,100 VP for the entire bundle. Though each individual skin would go for 1,775 VP per weapon except for the Melee which will be priced higher. But along with these skins, you get these amazing visual effects and sound effects that can be upgraded using the Radianite Points in-game. A custom ADS reticle, audio effects, various VFX, reload and finisher animations are also included that makes it equally interesting.
“The thought here was that as a Sovereign soldier transforms into a Forsaken, his weapon would follow his fate, warping its holy light into darkness and becoming a new weapon. So while the Marshal becomes the Operator, it still retains many similarities to the original weapon, like the swirling gem effects, the magical lines (which are now cracked), and for audio uses the same instruments in a Minor key to convey a sorrowful version of Sovereign.” - said Senior Producer Preeti Khanolka
