Valorant patch 8.03: Release date, patch notes, and more

Riot has released the full patch notes

Almost a week after being available in the test servers, update 8.03 for Valorant is finally arriving. This patch is small in comparison to previous ones, but it brings a few tweaks to some agents along with some esports and store features.

Now that the full patch notes have been released through the official website, we have gathered all the information about this new version.

Release date

Patch 8.03 for Valorant is set to be released on Wednesday, February 21. Even though the updates for the game are usually released on Tuesdays, this delay was probably to align the patch drop with the launch of the new VCT Team Capsules as mentioned by the leaker ValorLeaks in a recent post.

The game will go down for a 4-hour maintenance period and the patch should arrive around 10:00 am PT for the servers in North America, LATAM, and Brazil.

If you are in the EU, you'll have to wait a little bit longer for the update to be released. Servers for this region will go down at 4:00 am GMT and come back up at 8:00 am GMT on Wednesday, February 14.
