After getting leaked earlier in the day, Astra has officially been revealed as the next VALORANT agent. She will be a control agent and will be hailing from Ghana. Astra is the first agent to come from Ghana but she is not the first one to come from Africa as Cypher is also from Morocco. Now many people will be wondering more about Astra. Here is a look at everything that is currently known about Astra.
Astra will be joining VALROANT as the fifteenth agent. She will be a control agent that is really able to help all around the map. As only the fourth control agent in the game it will be interesting to see how she fits in the meta. With Viper still not getting used all that often one would think that Astra would slot in pretty quickly.
Coming in the middle of this current act right after Yoru shows that the VALORANT team is getting very creative with their agents. While they have similar thoughts around their abilities, the motifs surrounding them continue to grow along with the advances in the lore.
Now that she is the first cosmic agent it will be interesting to see if she has anything to do with Reyna or Omen. Some of her abilities not only looked similar to theirs but it may be where they are getting some of their powers as well. Is she from another world and then settled in Ghana or maybe she was born in Ghana and then given her powers? Either way, she is a very interesting new piece to the puzzle.
