Valorant Imperium Skinline Collection - All Skins , Release Date, Cost & More

A bunch of nerfs and a new map will not be the only thing that's going to come with Act 2. The latest skinline will arrive in our Valorant shop with the launch of Episode 7 Act 2. Here's all you need to know about it.

We are just a couple of days away from the newest act, and things are slightly getting out of hand. The latest patch notes that were released show that people will mostly feel sad as the most played agents have been nerfed hard. If you're a Jett, Skye, or Astra main, consider changing your Agent Pool, as Act 2 won't be so good for you.

Apart from that, we have two very exciting additions to the game that you will absolutely love! One is the new map - Sunset and the second one is the reason for this article, and it is the latest skin bundle that will be released.

Imperium Collection - Lore

Last but not least is the inspiration and lore behind the skinline. As seen in how the skin looks, the theme is made based on East Asian weaponry and armor where dragons are the central element of design.

Here's what the Art Direction Senior Manager of Valorant stated:

“We were inspired by the dragons of the East and jewel materials. We
worked with our China team and looked at artifacts from China to see how
we can incorporate the gold ornaments in the gun design. Our goal was
to make the weapons feel like they were treasures imbued with magic. The
variants were inspired by Chinese mythology, with each weapon variant
representing different dragon kings and their respective colors.” - Kerwin Atienza

And here's what the Character Art Manager of Valorant had to say:

“We had many challenges with a Finisher of this scale. In most enclosed
areas, the dragon would overlap with the environment. We made sure that
there would always be something interesting for the player to see by
having the enemy player encased in the crystal at ground level. Our
character and technical art team worked hard on the visuals of the
dragon and how it blends with the environment to make sure that in most
cases the dragon would be visible in its magnificence,” - Bastien Ramisse

Anything that's centered around East Asian design tends to look very good and attract the attention of Valorant players. This bundle as seen on the announcements has some similarities with the Oni Bundle, and will definitely be sold out and in our pubs from Day 1.
