League of Legends Getting New Champion, Map Alterations
Riot Games already made waves with its 10th anniversary live stream by announcing League of Legends’ forthcoming debut on the console and mobile front. There are also some major things coming to the original PC game as well -- namely, a new champion.
Senna is the latest champion to join the party, with the trailer featuring the character below. What’s more, there will be several new elemental effects that could change the course of the map for some players.
The long-awaited champ will arrive on Nov. 11. We don't know her abilities yet because the trailer was a cinematic, and not gameplay. However, it does give us an idea about backstory. We learn about her relationship with Lucian and how she was kept prisoner inside of a magical lantern. Riot has teased Senna to fans for quite some time, and now they get to see her in action next month.
Also, the Rise of the Elements update gives Elemental Drakes more influence during a match, marking one of the “biggest changes to Summoner’s Rift in years.” This change is getting applied on Nov. 21.
It’s best to keep a close eye on these neutral characters, if only because their effects can shake up a match. Cloud Drakes, for example, can create wind tunnels to get across a map much quicker than before. Meanwhile, Fire Drakes can burn through grass and walls like they were paper. There are several different ones to experiment with here.
Check out the trailer below and get ready for some massive updates next month, League players!
League of Legends is available now for PC.
