‘League Of Legends’ Gets A New Champion And New Skins [Video]

League of Legends, developed by Riot Games, is a multi-player battle arena game made for Windows and Mac OS X. In the game, players assume the role of champions that have a varying array of abilities. The players, as a group of individually, battle against one another, or a computer. All League of Legends Champions start off weak and grow in gold and experience through battle. Originally release in 2009, League of Legends has gained in popularity, with the game becoming highly competitive.

Now another champion is joining the ranks. On the League of Legends YouTube account, Riot Games released a trailer teasing at the new champion: Rek’Sai.

Below the video, in the description, we get a snippet of the legend behind Rek’Sai.

“Traders whisper stories of a beast below Shurima’s sands. They say she stalks the caravans that dare cross her domain. They say she hunts those that run, and kills those that fight. But what if the stories aren’t simple stories? What if they’re true?”

Load The Game gives a brief description of Rek’Sai’s abilities.

“Rek’Sai’s passive ability is called Xer’Sai and allows her to use fury to either attack enemy champions or to briefly regenerate health while burrowing. Q: for the Void Burrower is called Queen’s Wrath when she’s above ground and Prey Seeker when burrowed. W: is how she burrows underground or bursts forth from her tunnel. E: when used above ground utilizes Furious Bite and when underground has Rek’Sai digging toward a target location with Tunnel. And finally, R: is called Void Rush and passively gives Rek’Sai attack speed and actively gives her a significant burst of movement speed once she emerges from her tunnels.”

League of Legends is not only adding new champions, but new skins as well. In light of Black Friday, Riot Games released cops and robbers themed skins. Two detectives, Captain Volibear and Constable Trundle, are on the hunt for some criminal masterminds that go by the names of Pickpocket Twitch and Safecracker Evelynn. These skins can be purchased for 750 RP each. This may be a ploy to get League of Legends players to spend money, however, it is a clever one.

If players want all the skins a Super Ultra Mega Oversized Bundle is available. The skins included will be 60 percent off with champions being 50 percent off. The price is 8,896 RP for the skins, 20,269 RP if the champion skins are needed. The price of the bundle should change according to what skins are already owned. The Black Friday sale for League of Legends will end on November 30.
