Valorant is set to get its seventh map in the form of Fracture. It’s unlike current maps of the game and features a unique design that will have players taking a different approach to their strategies.

Fracture is an H-shaped map that is split through the middle. Defenders will spawn in the middle of the map while the attackers spawn on either side, closer to the two bomb sites. While defenders will leave spawn, attackers can move in to pinch them from both sides.
Usually, defender’s spawn close to bomb sites and it’s the attackers with centre spawn who have to make the first move and decide which site to hit. In Fracture, players will have to change their approach and make innovations in their playstyle to win. Riot has also added ziplines below the map to make it easier for players to get from one side to another.
When is Fracture releasing in Valorant?
Fracture is likely to arrive in the game on September 8 with the launch of Episode 3 Act 2. Recently, Riot also announced a collaboration between renowned DJ Zedd and Valorant. This collaboration will introduce players to a new Zedd-themed weapons bundle, game buddies, player cards, and more.
More information about the collaboration will be revealed during the special unveiling event that is scheduled for September 7 at 8 AM PST / 8.30 PM IST.
