For the very first time, Riot Games is hosting an in-game event that will make an impact on all its released games at the same time, especially within the world of League of Legends.
The event, Sentinels of Light, will reveal all of Riot’s upcoming League of Legends content.
The star, of course, is Akshan, the Rogue Sentinel and what’s new is that he will not only be the newest champion coming to Riot’s League of Legends: Wild Rift, he will also be featured on other games within the League of Legends lore, including Legends on Runeterra and Teamfight Tactics.
One of Akshan’s death defying skill feature is the first time Riot has introduced to the world. He can bring allies back from the dead. The rogue sentinel is a ranged champion with a grappling hook with a passive on his W. Akshan can mark his enemies as a Scoundrel when one of the sentinel’s allies is killed.
Moreover, League of Legends will also be getting an in-client story experience. The players will play as a rookie Sentinel trying to stop the ruination that’s coming to Runeterra. This event will also include 11 new in-canon skins to the game. There will also be a limited-time game mode called Ultimate Spellbook. It allows players to use a second Ultimate ability as well as the champions’ usual.
The Sentinels of Light will run from July 8 until August 10.
In Wild Rift, fans will also get to experience its own unique in-game story. Players get to join forces with other champions like Lucian, Senna, Riven, Irelia, Vayne and Akshan to fight off the Ruination.
There will also be a special comic and AR experience for fans to explore around the areas of Runeterra. This will also add a variety of in-game content including the exclusive Battle Academia Akshan skin.
