LoL, League of Legends: Eternals system to be released later this year

Riot Games are back with another Dev Video, loaded with content, trailers, and teasers of the League of Legends year to come. Like the previous video, they even tease some super-secret feature with a riddle...

LoL, League of Legends: Eternals system to be released later this year

Novelty of the year 2020, Dev Videos looks back on the achievements of the past years to communicate about the future of League of Legends.

Product Lead for Personalization Jonathan "Bellissimoh" Belliss revisits two main subjects: the champions that have been without skins for years, and the return of the Eternals system that was delayed a few months ago.

Patch 9.17 introduces League of Legends' latest feature: Eternals!

Because players asked for it, Riot will deliver a brand new champion-based achievement feature in Patch 9.17: Eternals!

2020 Skins

In 2018, Riot Games released over 80 skins, and they broke the mark in 2019 with more than 100 skins. According to Bellissimoh, Riot Games are planning on breaking their own record by releasing over 120 skins for 2020. However, while they usually target broad champions that are popular and played by a lot of people, they decided to design skins for ones that have been kind of forgotten over the past years — because "it sucks to have to wait years for a skin for your favorite champion".

Bard / Karthus / Kindred / Mordekaiser / Nautilus / Ornn / Pantheon / Rek'Sai / Sion / Skarner / Taliyah / Taric / Trundle / Twitch / Vel'Koz / Xerath

All the champions above should receive new skins, as well as the four following champions, because they're the "most popular champions". Without any surprise, Ahri, Ezreal, Kai'Sa and Lux will be on board.

Riot Games certainly know how to tease us, since the video is already showcasing some skins that apparently have already been designed!

The Eternals system was announced a few months ago already, but after receiving some harsh criticism from the community, Riot Games decided to delay its release. It was made for "you to flex your moments of glory both in and out of game".

The main problem of the system was the fact that it was an RP only feature, so Riot Games decided to develop "a new Starter Series that is available for Blue Essence or RP permanently."

"Our goal is to create skill-expressive and memorable stats that you're stoked to show off", said Bellisimoh.

Last but not least, Bellisimoh is mentioning the fact that Eternals release should arrive "early this year".

Following the riddles of the previous Dev Videos, he mentions the fact that we should expect to "hear something form us later this year" and that they can't wait to "announce them".

Is it a gentle way to tease a new feature involving voice announcements?!

Is League of Legends Dev Video teasing the arrival of Yone?

In Riot's last Dev Video, Ryan "Reav3" Mireles is talking about their plans for 2020. He mentions Fiddlesticks and Volibear reworks but also teases the arrival of two champions. One seems to be Yone, Yasuo's brother...
