Dark Star and Cosmic skins coming to Legends of Runeterra in Patch 2.8.0

The next Legends of Runeterra patch is nearly here, and with it comes the first Champion skins.

The first skins introduced to the game are Cosmic Zephyr Yasuo, Cosmic Exile Riven, Dark Star Zed and Dark Star Shyvana.

These skins come from a fan favourite theme in the League of Legends game and although these exact skins aren't in the game right now, it is possible that we'll see them added a later point.

Skins can be equipped to Champions, and will change the card art for that Champion as well as some animations.

"Champion skins are a new way to personalize your favorite decks by taking them to an entirely new dimension! 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 have entirely new level-up animations, and alter the appearance of summoned units (i.e. Dark Star Zed’s Living Shadows)."
