The awaited moment has arrived as Riot Games has officially introduced the newest addition to the Valorant Agent roster. This time, fans of the popular first-person tactical shooter were treated to a cinematic preview of Iso, the latest Duelist Agent.

Following the tradition of previous Agent cinematic trailers, the new trailer delves into Iso’s role in the game’s overarching storyline. In recent months, there have been reports of Tencent, the Chinese gaming giant, working on a cinematic adaptation of Valorant. If these reports hold to be true, it will be interesting to find out more about Iso’s significance within the narrative.

The new trailer unfolds within what appears to be the Kingdom operations facility, the biggest organization on Alpha Earth, seeking to harness the power of radianite. In the opening scene, a scientist in the company of guards talks about the rumored assassins that are targeting them. They discuss one particular assassin, referring to Iso, responsible for eliminating everyone connected to their research. The scientist expressed disbelief that only one assassin was responsible for dismantling the entire operation. In response, one of the guards explained that it’s because he’s bulletproof.

The last statement was utterly intriguing and surprising for a tactical hero shooter like Valorant to introduce a bulletproof character. However, this may not be entirely true as several Iso gameplay leaks have already emerged online, revealing that the only way Iso becomes bulletproof is by using his Contingency (C) ability, which allows him to push an indestructible wall of energy forward that blocks bullets, and Double Tap (E), which grants him a shield that can absorb one instance of damage from any source. Still, these defensive abilities present a significant challenge for opponents, suggesting that Iso would most likely undergo balancing adjustments in upcoming patches.

More details about Iso will revealed as Valorant has set another trailer for the new Agent to premiere tomorrow.
