Valorant 8.08 update: Possible release date, changes, and everything we know

There is still time to wait for this update

Valorant 8.08

Update 8.08 is coming in the near future to Valorant and while it's not the next one in line, Riot recently mentioned something about it publicly. 

We will have to wait until the patch arrives to the test servers to know what's exactly coming, but at least we can start to speculate about its content. Here are all the details we know so far about this future patch.

Possible release date

A release date for version 8.08 of Valorant hasn't been revealed but we have a few theories on when it's coming out.

Knowing that Riot usually releases an update for the game every other week, we can calculate that this patch will come out sometime at the beginning of May. An exact date is difficult to provide at the moment.

Although, it is safe to say that this version will come out during the game's next season, Episode 8 Act 3.

What else do we know?

Riot recently announced through the game's official account on X (formerly Twitter) that an unintended nerf to Viper's smokes went out with version 7.09. They also revealed that this is a preview of some of the changes coming with patch 8.08, meaning that several agents will receive changes in this ocassion.

If the developers are mentioning the patch this early, it could only mean that the changes it's bringing are very significant.

The first set of patch notes should arrive once the update is available in the test servers, giving us an idea on who's getting nerfed or buffed.

We will update this article whenever we get more information about the upcoming update to keep you in the loop.
