According to information published by Riot Games, the Lotus map with 3 brand new bombsites will be released in the upcoming 6.0 update of Valorant.
Information about the 9th map in Valorant has been transmitted by the gaming community for a long time, but most players do not have much information about this new map.
In the 5.12 update on December 6, Valorant players “implicitly” guessed that the 9th map would definitely appear. Because in the 5.12 update announcement, Riot Games has confirmed that it will remove the Bind and Breeze maps from the list of competitive and ranked maps, and will instead be the Split map (reworked) and the new map. new.
However, at the time of the 5.12 update, Valorant players were still very vague about the new map. Until the nearest Night Market, through the main image of this Night Market as well as the playercard in the Battlepass. Valorant fans just realized that the 9th map will have a lot to do with the lotus flower as well as the origin of the new agent “Harbor”.
On January 7th, the 9th map “Lotus” was officially launched on the PBE Valorant test server, this is the 2nd map out of 9 maps with 3 bombsites.
Compared to Haven, Lotus has more right angles as well as a relatively “difficult” path compared to the previous 3-site map.
In zone A, this is the largest bombsite area on the map. The central area is a small temple, quite similar to the B Tube in the Bind map. In addition, zone A also has a ledge that players can completely slide down. However, this ledge can only descend, not climb.
Crowded is the adjective describing the space in area B. Here, there are all 4 roads that can be moved to the bombsite area in the middle of the map. In the center of area B is a patch of concave land, Valorant players can completely create unexpected situations thanks to this special terrain.
The last Bombsite of Lotus is area C. This area is completely covered with water and here you will see a lot of lotus flowers. This is the image that was revealed in the recent Battlepass and Night Market.
Besides the 3 bombsite areas, the point that makes the 9th map special for fans of a Valorant is that Lotus owns a revolving door system that can be controlled from both sides.
This is an interesting feature no less than the portal in the Bind map. With the revolving door system, it is entirely possible for two opponents to accidentally “pass each other’s lives”.
The 9th map “Lotus” will be released in the upcoming 6.0 Valorant update. Check out the latest information about Valorant at Game4V.
