In May 2019, Riot Games gave the League of Legends community the opportunity to choose the next champion reworks. Fiddlesticks and Volibear were the most popular. Now that the new scarecrow has been roaming the Rift for a few weeks, Riot is about to reveal the new form of the Ursidae demigod.
Meanwhile, Volibear's new splashart leaked on Twitter and other social medias.
"We moved away from the permanent unstoppability idea and have instead been testing a new direction, making Volibear feel more like a god of storms, bringing thunder down on his enemies and the structures they hide behind," said Riot Games in their October 2019 Roadmap.
The least we can say is that Volibear's new splashart definitely fits with the idea Riot pitched us in October — and we couldn't be more delighted about it.
Sadly, that's the only glance we have for now about the new Volibear. However, Riot Games is apparently planning a stream on Friday around 8PM PST — and we can safely assume that they will reveal more about him.
Riot Turkey just roared it on Twitter, you'll be able to watch the stream on youtube.com/user/RiotGamesInc/featured
Update: Riot Turkey deleted the tweet, hence the weird format above, but Surrender at 20 managed to record the teaser before it was removed...
We hope to see the other splasharts of the champions, including his five skins, but above all to catch a glimpse of his new gameplay and in-game textures...
