LoL: Three new champions in 2020 roadmap

LoL: Three new champions in 2020 roadmap

Riot has unveiled its roadmap for the next champions to come to League of Legends in 2020. In addition to a rework of Dr. Mundo, three new champions will hit the Rift: a jungler, midlaner and AD carry.

LoL: Three new champions in 2020 roadmap

Riot Games likes to teaseahead of time. The publisher has today announced its roadmap for future characters in League of Legends. In the official press release, Riot Games explains that they wants to focus the rest of 2020 on new champions.

The focus is on brand new champions. The staff hopes to release 6 in 12 months, so that each player, whatever their position, can experience a completely new gameplay.

For the next few months, three characters are in the pipeline, and will be released in this order:

  • A Jungler
  • An Assassin
  • An ADC

The next character: a "medium range skirmisher"

League of Legends

The junglers haven't had much to chew on for the past few months. Riot expects to put an end to this wait, with a character announced as a " medium range skirmisher" .

Eep! I shouldn’t say anything else… But maybe, possibly... We can find her instead! Be very quiet, though, she can be quite shy, and if we startle her she may prance into action, darting off as our vision starts to get blurry… and… hazy. The world around us is becoming slow… NO! We have to stay awake! But… it’s so warm and safe… Must… sleep…

An Assassin to try next month

It's hard to tell who is behind this enigmatic masked killer. The second champion is an Assassin

League of Legends

Riot Games reveals very little information about this champion, and we will have to be satisfied with the image above until further notice! We learn, however, that the jungler and the assassin will be tested next month via a special event.

A versatile ADC

Finally, it is a sulphurous shooter that takes shape at the end of the list of champions to come. Again, little information about it except for this quote:

Do you like to laugh in the face of danger? Do you enjoy stringing together abilities, creating stylish new combos? Does the idea of diving straight into the fray, firing a whirlwind of blades and bullets, then hopping back out with a sliver of health excite you?
