When Does The New Valorant Map Lotus Come Out?

Each new act in Valorant means a plethora of new content to get excited about. Usually, the main stars are either a new Agent or a new map. And for Episode 6 Act 1, we are going to the Indian subcontinent! That’s because the new map – Lotus – is set in India. Not only will we get a whole new location to explore, but it will also come with a host of new gameplay mechanics. For starters, it will feature three spike sites, which is a diversion from the standard structure of Valorant maps. Haven, one of the launch maps, was the only map to date with three spike sites. Furthermore, the new map will introduce destructible map elements. Players will be able to destroy some walls and doors, unlocking new routes and creating potential flanking options.

Both of these new additions can create exciting new scenarios and will prompt players to think outside the box, as rounds will play out differently compared to other maps. So, when will we be able to play this new map? Valorant Episode 6 Act 1 is set to be released on Tuesday, January 10th. And that’s also when the new Valorant map will come out. For the exact time, the map will be released after a short maintenance period. Here are the exact times:

  • NA Servers – 6 am PT / 9 am ET
  • EU Servers – 4 am GMT / 5 am CET on January 11th

The maintenance is expected to last for a couple of hours, during which the competitive queue will be disabled. After the patch is deployed, servers will be back online, and you can then try the new Valorant Lotus Map. With that said, that’s all you need to know.

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
