Recently, Valorant developers revealed some exciting details about the upcoming agent, and here's everything you need to know about it.
Riot Games' Valorant is one of the most popular first-person shooter games. The competitive esports title boasts several maps along with unique agents. Every agent in Valorant flaunts different abilities that are crucial to the gameplay.
Riot promised to release a new agent in each Act; however, there wasn't any new agent in Episode 2: Act 3. Fortunately, the devs confirmed that we'd definitely get a new agent in the Episode 3 update.

Valorant New Agent Abilities
Recently, Valorant released a post to talk about the State of the Agents. Besides talking about future balances for the existing agents, devs dropped some interesting information about the upcoming agent.
Apparently, the agent's abilities will feel familiar to players who love playing traditional FPS games. That's because, according to the developers, the new agent will create "moments where you must rely on your gunplay."
Of course, it's still too soon to assume anything based on that statement; however, we think that a new agent might be able to pause other agent's abilities for a few seconds.
Nevertheless, this is only a prediction after reading the above statement from Riot, so take it with a pinch of salt.
Besides that, Valorant devs also revealed a teaser image for the new agent. And thanks to Floxay on Twitter, we know that the image is titled "Data Transfer." The data miner also revealed a spray from the previous Battlepass, which might be teasing the upcoming agent's look.
Besides teasing some abilities, Riot confirmed that the new agent would arrive with Patch 3.0.
The next major update will kick off Valorant Episode 3, and it is expected to come out around June 22nd, 2021. So, tighten your seatbelt because we'll definitely get more leaks for Episode 3 in a couple of days.

If you are a veteran Destiny 2 player you might be well aware of Xur. The popular merchant arrives every week in the game and gives players a chance to buy some exotic weapons, armors, and a lot of other stuff.
Who is Xur?
Xur is the Agent of Nine and like we mentioned earlier, players can buy a plethora of items from him using Legendary Shards. There is a new set of weapons and armor available for sale every week.
However, there is a catch. Xur's location changes every week, so players need to know where he will be spawning before they are able to buy items from him. Xur appears in either The Tower, European Dead Zone, Titan, Nessus, or IO.

Bungie hasn't released Xur's location for this week yet. Do note that Xur arrives in the game every Friday at 5 pm GMT/1 pm EST. He is available until Tuesday, so players have a bit of time to be able to buy their items from him. For now, you can check out Xur's offerings for last week.

Well, it looks Bandai Namco is all set to bring the series back to fans through multiple new projects.

New Gundam SEED Manga, Anime, and Game
To celebrate the upcoming 20th anniversary of 2002's Gundam SEED anime, Bandai Namco announced the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Ignited.
As part of the new initiative, the studio announced three new projects centered around the legendary anime; a new manga, a film, and a mobile game.
The new manga, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Eclipse, will release worldwide in July. As reported by Anime News Network, the upcoming manga's story is set between the "missing two years between the two wars."
A new Gundam SEED movie is also in the making, which was initially announced back in 2006. The movie is supposed to serve as a sequel to the TV series.
For some reason, we didn't hear anything about the movie since the announcement. But fortunately, now it's confirmed that the new movie is in production.
However, there's no official release window for the movie, and we'll hear more about the project in the future.
Finally, Bandai Namco also announced a Gundam SEED mobile game. Of course, we don't have any details on the upcoming game, and it's too soon to assume that the game is already in development.
Anyway, Bandai Namco confirmed that they'd release more information on the upcoming mobile game pretty soon. So, let's wait and get back to seeing the original anime to be ready for what's ahead.

Oscar Isaac is going to play the questionably great and but extremely powerful Moon Knight for his upcoming MCU series for Disney+, and here are his powers.
Another week, another A-tier actor joins the MCU. This time it's Oscar Isaac of Star Wars fame playing Moon Knight.
This hero is among the more unconventional superheroes out there in the MCU.
Moon Knight suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder and the fact that he derives his powers from an Egyptian Moon god further aggravates the problem.
Read more to learn about Moon Knight and what his powers are.
- MORE MCU: Moon Knight MCU Details and His Relationship With The Avengers
How Did Moon Knight Get His Powers?
Moon Knight, born as Marc Spector, was a former US Marine-turned-C.I.A. agent. He later left both the organisations with disgrace and became a soldier-for-hire.
During one of his missions in Egypt at a Pharoah's tomb, a scuffle in the crew ensured. Spector was mortally wounded and the crew on his side placed him beneath the idol of the Egyptian god Khonshu. There, his spirit ascended and met Khonshu himself who promised to save his life in exchange of his service.
He returned with his friend Frenchie and now his lover Marlene to New York. They helped him develop the costume and persona of Moon Knight to fight crime.
What Are Moon Knight's Powers?
Spector attributing his powers and abilities to Khonshu are often in question. He himself isn't a reliable source for himself due to his state of mind. Nevertheless, the Moon Knight has superhuman powers such as:
- Enhancement of strength, endurance, and reflexes depending upon the phases of the moon. The fuller the moon, the more strength he gains. It isn't known whether his strength is mystical or simply self-hypnosis due to psychological instability.
- Resistance to some psychic attacks due to multiple personalities. Also receives prophetic visions sometimes.
- High tolerance for pain either as a result of a spiritual gift or simply being numb from years of damage.
- MORE MCU: Are The Eternals Part of The MCU or The Avengers?
Moon Knight also has general human powers that greatly aid him in his conquest such as:
- Expert hand-to-hand combat with expertise in various Martial Arts from Krav Maga to Muay Thai. Also an Olympic-level athlete and a skilled acrobat and gymnast.
- Expert detective and private investigator with top knowledge about the criminal underworld.
- Expert interrogator who doesn't shy from using military secrets of torture.
- Pinpoint accuracy as a sharpshooter and can slice a bullet in half with a crescent disc.
- Mastery over various weapons such as combat knives, chains, brass, knuckles, shurikens, and boomerangs and all types of firearms from pistols to Gatling guns.

What Is Moon Knight's Relation With Dracula?
It is currently rumoured that Moon Knight faces off against Dracula in the upcoming Disney+ series. The two know and mention each other in the comics but their relation skyrocketed in popularity after popular memes around them.
Dracula isn't exactly among the main antagonists faced by Moon Knight in the past, bringing speculations about a tie-in with the upcoming Blade reboot featuring Mahershala Ali given Blade's history with Dracula.
Moon Knight features Oscar Isaac as the titular protagonist and releases in 2022 on Disney+.

The release date for Inazuma, one of the seven regions of Teyvat, is one of the most anticipated announcement for Genshin Impact fans. We compiled all the major hints so far that could help us pinpoint the Inazuma release date, along all the major story, lore, and character elements revealed in Genshin Impact so far.
Note that this piece contains spoilers if you haven't finished all of the main story quests available in Genshin Impact as of April 2021.
Genshin Impact 1.6 Livestream – More Inazuma concept artwork, May 28, 2021 update
miHoYo revealed more concept artwork for Inazuma during the Version 1.6 livestream. A short segment at the end of the stream, with an SD version of Ayaka, revealed six new pieces of artwork:
The areas' names are:
- Watatsumi Island (artwork 1)
- Seirai Island (2)
- Tsurumi Island (3)
- Unknown location (4)
- Unknown location in somewhere in Narukami Island: "The plant life here has grown gnarled and unnatural from growing in uttermost darkness. Something twisted seems to be sealed here" (5)
- Narukami Island Grand Narukami Shrine (6)
New Inazuma artwork and lore, April 16, 2021 Update
miHoYo, on the livestream for Genshin Impact 1.5 Beneath The Light of Jadeite, revealed six new artwork for Inazuma. Revealing several areas. We have Narukami Island ith its tall mounains. Then we have the Tatarasuna, Kannazuka area, with two artworks of two different locations. The first one with sakura raining like snow, and the second one showing the Mikage Furnace.
Next, we have two artwork for Yashiori island and its snake skeleton cavern. Lastly, we have the Tenshu castle, or Tenshukaku, in Inazuma City. Where Electron Archon Baal should be residing.
- CODES – Genshin Impact redeemable codes for free Primogems
Official lore (April 16, 2021 update)
Narukami Island: A sight witnessed by al inbound travelers to Inazuma. The Grand Narukami Shrine and Sacred Sakura on the mountain, and the city of Inazuma on the coast.
Yashiori Island: The skeleton of a great snake rests on this island. The presence of evil is palpable here.
Tatarasuna, Kannazuka: The mountain surrounding the Mikage Furnace. Blossoms continue to bloom here, impervious to the effects of war.
Mikage Furnace at Tatarasuna, Kannazuka: The largest smelting facility in all the islands of Inazuma, surrounded by jagged, rocky terrain. War has brought production to a halt.
Tenshukaku, Inazuma City: The residence of the most exalted one in all of Inazuma. Standing tall on the highest point in the city, it watches over all under the Electro Archon's dominion.
The versions of the artwork shown on stream, and published by the Japanese Twitter, also teased a new character from Inazuma. In SD form.
Note that while her identity wasn't officially confirmed, this teased character is definitely not Baal seeing the lore we know (see further below). Moreover, according to several Chinese speakers, this new pink character was described as a "fox" by Zhongli, and was described as a friend of Zhongli and Baal. Lastly, she doesn't look like Mei from Honkai, but more like Yae Sakura.
Our summary of the livestream can be found here. Sadly, we did not get a new update roadmap with Inazuma. But that's better than nothing.
Inazuma reveal on the 1.5 stream? April 15, 2021 Update
miHoYo announced the 1.5 livestream, here's everything you need to watch it as fast as possible. Moreover, Zhongli's Chinese VA teased that "miHoYo will become leakers themselves". Teasing the reveal of a new roadmap, probably pinpointing which update will add Inazuma.
Our original story is found below.
What is Inazuma in Genshin Impact?
Inazuma is one of the seven regions of Teyvat, and the Electro region. Just like how Mondstadt is based on western medieval Europe, and Liyue is based on China, Inazuma will be based on Japan. It'll be an island region located somewhere east of Liyue Harbor on the world map. Main story wise, Inazuma is currently the next destination of the Traveler, and Act II of the Teyvat story.
In the past, miHoYo listed the upcoming regions and story chapters in Genshin Impact:
Act Prologue: The Outlander Who Caught The Wind. Region: Mondstadt (Anemo / wind element). Featured character: Diluc
Act I: Farewell, Archaic Lord. Region: Liyue (Geo / earth element). Featured character: Ningguang
Act II: Omnipresence Over Mortals. Region: Inazuma (Electro / lightning element) Featured character: Ayaka Kamisato
Act III: Truth Amongst the Pages of Purana. Region: Sumeru (Dendro / wood element) Featured character: Cyno
Act IV: Masquerade of the Guilty. Region: Fontaine (Hydro / water element) Featured characters: Lyney and Lynette
Act V: Incandescent Ode of Resurrection. Region: Natlan (Pyro / fire element) Featured character: Iansan
Act VI: Everwinter Without Mercy. Region: Snezhnaya (Cryo / ice element) Featured character: Harbinger Pulcinella
Act ?: The Dream Yet to Be Dreamed. Region: Khaen'riah (no element listed). Featured character: Bough Keeper Dainsleif
- LEAKS – Latest leaked quests and events
Inazuma release date in Genshin Impact
First off, it's important to note miHoYo did not publish a release date for Inazuma yet. However, it's likely we could hear about a release date estimate soon.
Back when Genshin Impact released, miHoYo published a roadmap for the updates, up to Ver 1.3. In other words, we already knew from the start Dragonspine would be added in 1.2. And that the Lantern Festival was coming in 1.3, Which strongly hinted at Xiao's banner, for example.
However, since the launch of 1.3, miHoYo has yet to publish a new roadmap for future updates. This means we could hear about Inazuma and its release very soon. Once miHoYo decides to publish a new roadmap.
Currently, Genshin Impact is at Ver 1.5, released on April 28. The 1.6 livestream confirmed Inazuma will not be added to the game. So far, the game's updates have happened every six weeks. Assuming this release pace stays identical, it means we'll wait till Version 1.7 on July 21, 2021, at earliest, for Inazuma to release.
- BLUE PROTOCOL – Is it the Genshin Impact killer?
Biggest hints, characters, and lore elements revealed on Inazuma so far
miHoYo hinted Inazuma is coming multiple times in the past.
The first Beta Test and Ayaka. Genshin Impact had over three Closed Beta Tests before release. While players were handpicked and selected by miHoYo, any participating player could freely share information, screenshots, and gameplay. Unlike the current Private Beta Tests for future versions, where it's strictly forbidden by NDA to share anything.
The first Beta included Ayaka Kamisato as a playable character. A Sword user and Cryo user from Inazuma. It's likely she will be added to the main game with a banner with the release of Inazuma.
Voiced by Saori Hayami, Ayaka was also in one of the very first trailers for Genshin Impact in September 2019, back when few cared about the game.
- AYAKA – Latest official teaser for the Inazuma character
Inazuma map leaks
Some players, by datamining content from the first Beta Test, made a possible map of Teyvat judging from that data. Needless to say, the full map will be completely different. And we won't see it anytime soon, it'll probably take years. However, this can give you an idea of where Inazuma is located. Again, we can see it's at the east of Liyue Harbor.
The above mentioned list, listing the regions and their order. This was revealed right after the release of Genshin Impact on September 28, 2020.
DualShockers' interview with miHoYo. Simultaneously with the release of Genshin Impact, back in September 2020, the studio told us regarding the release date of Inazuma:
miHoYo: "Perceptive players will have already noticed the hints that we dropped about the new city in development. We are working hard to bring it to players as soon as we can".
- INTERVIEW – Our full interview with miHoYo
Zhongli's answers at the end of the Liyue Archon quest. With the release of Ver 1.1 in November 2020, miHoYo confirmed in-game for the first time that the Traveler will head next to Inazuma.
Unreconciled Stars event and Scaramouche
With Ver 1.1 and this event, players were introduced to the 6th Fatui Harbinger, Scaramouche, who is likely to be from Inazuma. This is speculation from his clothes and physical features, as miHoYo technically never officially confirmed it.
Seeing Childe was made playable, it's likely Scaramouche, voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara, will get his own banner at some point despite being an antagonist. If he plays a key role during the Inazuma story chapter, he could be added then. Otherwise, Scaramouche might be made playable in a much further update.
ファトゥス 第6位 散兵（ざんひょう）
— 原神（Genshin）公式 (@Genshin_7) November 24, 2020
The Drifting Bottles and Uyuu restaurant. Dragonspine, which was added with Ver 1.2 in December 2020, included new hints pointing out at Inazuma. If you've explored the whole mountain, you'd have found drifting bottles sent from Inazuma. The bottles most notably mention Uyuu restaurant, which is seemingly one of the key locations in Inazuma we'll be visiting.
Genshin Impact Inazuma release date – How the Electro, Inazuma Archon is linked to it
Baal, the Electro Archon, will be playing a key role in the Inazuma storyline, most probably as the main antagonist. We've learned quite a lot about her in-game, and her different titles: God of Eternity Raiden Shogun, and Immortal Shogun.
However, miHoYo did not reveal any artwork or screenshot of Baal yet. The one thing to note however, is that Genshin Impact and Honkai Impact, another miHoYo game, have several lore links. Several Genshin Impact characters look similar to Honkai characters, or are named after them. And from what we know so far, it's highly likely Electro Archon Baal will look similar to raiden Mei from Honkai.

miHoYo held on May 28 the Genshin Impact 1.6 livestream, officially revealing the release date for the Midsummer Island Adventure update with Klee and Kazuha – we have all the details below, including the boat system and costumes (skins) pricing.
- NEW CODES – Primogem codes from the 1.6 livestream
Genshin Impact 1.6 release date, trailer
The 1.6 update of Genshin Impact, Midsummer Island Adventure, will be launching on June 9, 2021 (June 8 ET). The specific maintenance schedule and launch time will, as always, be revealed a few days before June 9.
New character – Kaedehara Kazuha, support role, voice actor
Kazuha is a Sword and Anemo 5* character from Inazuma. An intro trailer and screenshots from Kazuha's Story Quest were shared. Klee's banner will launch on June 9 with 1.6, and Kazuha's banner will be coming three weeks after it on June 30.
In the official press release, Kazuha is described as a Support character by miHoYo. Explaining how with his Elemental Skill and Burst. Kazuha can buff party members, and crowd control hordes of enemies.
Kazuha's skills, like Venti or Sucrose's Anemo Skills, deal additional Elemental damage if they come into contact with Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, or Electro. Lastly, by triggering a Swirl reaction, Kazuha can further buff his teammates with an Elemental Damage Bonus for their corresponding Element.
Kazuha will appear in a new Archon quest (main story quest). He is traveling with Beidou and her Crux Fleet, and will give the Traveler clues about the way to the closed-off Inazuma.
In Japanese, Kazuha is voiced by Nobunaga Shimazaki (Yuki in Fruits Basket remake).
New weapons banner
New boss Maguu Kenki
Maguu Kenki uses Cryo and Anemo attacks, and can summon phantoms of itself. miHoYo stated in the press release that "it can only be taken down while in close-range combat" perhaps insinuating that it can nullify long-range attacks to a certain degree.
- INAZUMA – All the artwork and official hints so far
How to get the new Costumes (Skins) for Barbara and Jean, Price
The Barbara summer costume, Summertime Sparkle, will be available for free as you clear its event, Echoing Tales. Once the Echoing Tales event ends, Summertime Sparkle will then be available in the Shop for 1680 Genesis Crystals.
The Jean summer skin, Sea Breeze Dandelion, will only be available through the Shop, for 1350 Genesis Crystals for a limited time during 1.6, and then permanently for 1680 Genesis Crystals:
New events and free 4* Catalyst weapon
The update's story begins with Klee receiving a mysterious letter from "Dodo-King" threatening to take her doll Dodoco away from her. Searching for Dodo-King, players will explore a new, secluded achipelago using boats called Waverider, in search of the mysterious "Dodoland."
By completing all the events, we'll get a brand-new four-star catalyst, Dodoco Tales, and all the materials to fully refine it.
Here's the gameplay trailer for all the new events, including the Waverider (boat event), "Whirlpool off to Starboard" (new Gliding challenge with the Waverider), the Bom Bom tennis mini-game with Klee, and a new event similar to the Contending Tides battle event.
It looks like the boat system is an event-only limited addition.
Genshin Impact 1.6 – System optimizations trailer
Most notably, several repetitive confirmation windows were removed from the game. Leaving a Domain without completing it will be smoother as well.
Serenitea Pot update – Place characters in Housing mode
Genshin Impact 1.6 will let players place their characters inside the Serenitea Pot. miHoYo has previously stated this is only available for characters you actually own.
Characters in your realm will gradually accumulate Character Companionship Experience over time. The increase rate depends of your Adeptal Energy Rank.
That's all the details from the 1.6 livestream. Most of it had leaked beforehand, but I'm personally still looking forward to the boat event. How do you feel about the update so far? You can always reach out to me directly to chat on Twitter @A_iyane07.
Genshin Impact is available on PS4, PS5, PC, iOS, and Android.
Last year, Marvel announced that the Moon Knight series was in the works for Disney Plus last year. But we had heard very little about it until the recent announcement which confirmed that Oscar Isaac will be playing the role of Moon Knight in the series.
This announcement signifies the arrival of more content for the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the next few years as the franchise continues to expand on streaming platforms.
Marvel's Moon Knight is one of those characters who seem to be inspired by DC Comics' Batman and is certainly more of a weird character.

In the comics, Moon Knight has fought alongside the Avengers, the Defenders, and other known Marvel hero teams.
It is rumored that Marvel plans to capitalize on the success of Avengers by creating more super-team crossover movies. This includes not only Young Avengers and Dark Avengers/Thunderbolts but also a Midnight Sons movie.
The Midnight Sons will have more supernatural heroes in the MCU joining hands to face the world's darkest and most unsettling threats.
This Midnight Sons movie will probably feature both existing and new MCU characters – including Doctor Strange, Scarlet Witch, Blade, and Moon Knight.
Moon Knight MCU Phase 4
It is already confirmed that Moon Knight will be a part of MCU Phase 4.
Back in February, Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios gave a vague timeline for the production of Moon Knight.
According to his statement, it was suspected that the production would begin somewhere between the end of March and the beginning of June 2021.
If we take Marvel Studios' latest tweet into consideration, this timeline seems about right. And Moon Knight will most likely be released after Ms. Marvel which is scheduled for a late 2021 release on Disney Plus.
Moon Knight Release Date
Currently, there's no word on a release date, but taking the above information into consideration, we will most likely get to see the Moon Knight series on Disney Plus in the first half 2022.
Meanwhile, there are several other Marvel shows on their way soon to Disney Plus. Loki is set to premiere on June 9th and both Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye are scheduled for the later half of 2021.

Todd Phillips will be returning as co-writer for Joker 2, but will the sequel finally let Arthur Fleck come face to face with Batman?
The 2019 film presented a darker version of the Clown Prince of Crime through Phillips' unique vision and Joaquin Phoenix's stellar performance.
Joker stood independently from the DCEU and many believed it would remain as a one-off show, but whispers of a sequel with Phoenix on board soon surfaced.

Where did Joker end?
Arthur Fleck had a triumphant finale after his descent into madness, where Robert De Niro's Murray Franklin met a shocking end. After Arthur became somewhat of a god in the eyes of Gotham rioters, he was quickly incarcerated within the iconic Arkham Asylum during Joker's conclusion.
With Arthur now locked up – a familiar position for the Joker to be in – questions are now being asked about how Joker 2 will continue his story behind bars. We know that the Joker rarely stays imprisoned for long, but will Phillips lean on the source material this time around?
Could Phillips follow a comic book arc?
If Phillips takes the Grant Morrison and Dave McKean comic Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth into account, we could see chaos outbreak in Arkham. The comic follows the Arkham Knight as he attempts to diffuse a riot within the asylum involving many DC villains, including Two-Face, Killer Croc, and the Joker.
If Joker 2 began before the riot, we could see a continuation of Arthur's internal struggle during his time at Arkham, where he would eventually provoke another riot that could end with his first confrontation with Batman.
Will Joker 2 have a time jump?
Joker offered a momentous scene between Arthur and a young Bruce Wayne which was beautifully haunting and set up the characters' rivalry. But in order for Arthur to face Bruce as Batman in Joker 2, there would need to be a significant time jump.
Bruce's earliest donning of the cowl was during his late 20s, according to the comics, meaning Joker 2's narrative would need to exist at least 15 years after the events of Joker. This would make Arthur around 55 years old.
Of course, there's a good chance that Phillips will choose to follow his own narrative again, which will only add to the character's original adaptation. But perhaps he'll allow old enemies to meet in his own way, much to the delight of fans.
