Following the wave of announcements we got in the latest dev update on the Riot Games YouTube channel, which addressed the Skarner rework, the new League of Legends champion, Hwei, and so much more, we are covering the League of Legends roadmap Riot Games released alongside the dev update, so you can know exactly what is in store for our favourite MOBA!
The Next Champion, Hwei
Hwei is the next champion coming out in League of Legends, as announced by Lexical in the dev update, and whilst we have done a full article with the full breakdown, we will give you a brief summary now!
Hwei is intended to be a mid laner, whether the League of Legends community will keep it that way is another matter, but he is also planned to be a very high-skilled champion, meaning new Hwei mains will have to invest a lot of time into him to master him.
He plays around with Art and will be painting his way onto Summoner’s Rift very soon! We expect him to be in the game before the end of 2023, but knowing Riot and their tendency to delay releases, we might not see him until early 2024!
The Skarner Rework
Skarner’s rework is finally making progress, and we have seen what he does! Once again, we have a full article detailing everything we know about the scorpion king, so if you want to find out more about him, then check that out!
The rework has given our favorite scorpion two extra tails, and doing his best Taliyah impression, he now loves lobbing rocks at enemies! That is all we will say here, but for the full coverage of what we do and don’t know so far, check out our article!
An Upcoming Creature Champion
Whilst not much was revealed about the champion after Hwei, we have the teaser that he is a creature, so a bit of variety from the humanoids we are used to!
We are told he will grow with a mighty roar, and the teaser is what looks to be a dragon egg! So who knows, maybe a new dragon is on the way, move over Shyvana. He is also mentioned within royalty, so a Demacian Royal perhaps?
When we find out more, you will be the first to know!
A Vastayan down the road
Finally we have been teased a new Vastayan solo laner who loves travelling around, who also has an ability to see what others can’t. This could mean a solo laner who loves roaming around, and perhaps with a global ability to help them do so?
That is all we know, but as we said, when we find out more about any of the champions teased in this October 2023 roadmap, we will get it out for you guys as soon as we can!
