Riot Games has announced that Champion skins are making their way to Legends of Runeterra in patch 2.8, fulfilling one of players’ most popular requests.
“Champion skins are a new way to personalize your favorite decks,” Riot Games says. “Equipping a champion with a skin will alter the art for all copies of each of that champion’s levels, as well as their accompanying flavor text.”
“Some skins can even change the appearance of a champion’s summoned units, and can even grant entirely new level-up animations. Each skin’s effects are listed out on their Store page, so players can see exactly what they’ll change before making a purchase,” the company adds.
This first set of Champion skins, four in total, are based on fan favorites from League of Legends’ Cosmic Skin and Dark Star skinlines.
