Villains are taking over Summoner’s Rift
Riot Games surprises fans yesterday when they tease brand new arcade skins for several champions. In conjunction to the new skins, Summoner’s Rift itself is getting an arcade makeover. If you want to try them out before they are officially released, these new stuff are part of patch 7.16 Public Beta Environment cycle. You can expect them to go live with the rest of the patch once they are ready . Have a look at what’s in store for you!
Arcade Summoner’s Rift
Battle Boss Brand
Battle Boss Malzahar
Battle Boss Ziggs
Poro Gamer Ward Skin
Brand looks like he’s a reference of Megaman while Ziggs holds a resemblance to Bomberman. As for Malzahar, I can’t quite think of a reference but nevertheless, he looks super badass. But, there’s more! Riot Games went above and beyond with the release of two more skins into PBE. Kayle will be joining the Pentakill rock band and our favourite demon-centaur gets himself a regal looking skin.
Lancer Zero Hecarim
According to the PBE feedback thread by Riot LoveStrut, this skin will be loot-exclusive. Similar to Hextech Annnie and Soulstealer Vayne, this skin is only obtainable via the RNG-based Hextech Crafting System. Better hope luck is on your side, summoners 😛
