When Does Valorant Episode 8 Act 2 Start? – Answered

Strange downtime for some regions.

While Valorant’s major episode releases bring more content than the other updates to the game, the Acts of each episode still bring a welcome amount of content. Here’s when Valorant Episode 8 Act 2 starts.

What Day and Time Does Valorant Episode 8 Act 2 Begin?

Episode 8 Act 2 of Valorant will begin on March 5 at 10 AM PT. This will be preceded by downtime that’ll likely begin around 6 AM PT, so if you like playing the game in the early morning, you won’t be able to. For most other regions, you can simply convert this time to your timezone to know exactly when this will all be happening. For Europeans however, your downtime will begin at 4 AM GMT and end at 8 AM GMT.

Do keep in mind that all of the above goes off of if Valorant’s downtime and release times aren’t affected by changes in schedule or unexpected delays. These are merely the times that most other Episodes and Acts have had for downtime and release times. If there are changes, we’ll try to update this article so you’re aware right away.

What’s Coming With Episode 8 Act 2?

While details on what’s coming with the next Act are a little sparse, we do know that we’ll be seeing a new agent during this act. Currently, they’re expected to be revealed sometime “later this month” which is likely referring to the VCT Masters event in Madrid beginning on March 24. Given that delay, it’s likely we’ll just have the standard changes of some balance updates and the new battle pass when the update drops. We also know of a new skin line, which you can see the trailer for below.
