Valorant Episode 4 has kicked off, bringing with it new agent Neon who hails from the Philippines and is the game’s first Southeast Asian agent!

Neon introduces a new level of excitement and action to the game as part of the Valorant Episode 4 Act 1 upgrade. Neon can sprint and slide faster than lightning to catch her opponents off guard. She may also fire a focused beam of electricity at her opponents to wipe them out.

The Valorant game designer Ryan “rycou” Cousart, who is also a proud Filipino, expressed his excitement for Agent Neon in a news release, saying “I’m a Filipino designer, so the opportunity to help bring a Filipina agent to life in VALORANT is an absolute blessing to me all the way down to the core”. Riot Games have pulled all the stops to ensure an authentic and genuine Filipina character comes to life in their game.

This season screams Filipino because even Neon’s voice actress, Vanille Velasquez, is also from the Philippines, and the reveal trailer for the character featured a song by Filipino-Australian singer, Ylona Garcia.

A great way to start the year for our Filipino Valorant players and watchers alike!
