Lotus will arrive on July 9 and Icebox on July 23. Essentially, Riot will slowly add a map with each patch until they are all available on the console port.

Ranked mode is coming, but don’t expect crossplay. In a statement made by Riot to Dexerto, Valorant will not have crossplay between console and PC to maintain “competitive integrity”which also applies to Competition mode.
