League of Legends shows off new champion Viego, The Ruined King in animated cinematic

The Destroyed King is among the most famous figures in League of Legends and he’s lastly heading into the video game for the very first time. On Friday, as part of its event of League’s 2021 season, Riot launched a teaser for the brand-new champ.

In the CG cinematic the Destroyed King, whose genuine name is Viego, appears in a little serene location of Runeterra and brings darkness with him. Viego initially handles Lucian and Senna and utilizes Senna’s power to attempt to revive his long lost love and restore his kingdom. We see champs from all over the world like Poppy, Samira, Darius, and Vayne safeguarding their different kingdoms from Viego’s forces. Simply as everybody will be overwhelmed, Lucian handles to postpone Viego for a minute and escape with Senna.

The video ends with Viego getting a lot more power, and with Lucian stating that he and Senna won’t have the ability to stop the Destroyed King alone. While this is a little a cliff wall mount, according to Riot, Viego’s story is one that will be checked out in various League of Legends stories and video games throughout the year.

In reality, Ryan Mireles, the lead manufacturer on League’s champs group, stated there will be 3 other brand-new champs launched as part of Viego’s story. To begin with will be a leading lane Fighter, who is obviously themed after scissors or customizing. Then there will be a “gloomy” Yordle who will work as a weapons mage in-game. Lastly, Riot briefly teased a brand-new marksman champ also, however didn’t share any information other than that they may play the function in a non-traditional method.

One of League’s most identifiable and iconic weapons, players have long wondered about its namesake and why exactly his blade is so important. In fact, they wondered about it enough for Riot to partner with Airship Syndicate to make an entire game about him called Ruined King: A League of Legends Story.

According to Riot’s press material, it seems that Viego will primarily be a jungler, and it seems that once he kills an enemy champ, he’ll have the chance to control them for a brief time.While we don’t know exactly when Riot plans to release Viego, the developer has said he should be out sometime this month.

In the same video that it announced Viego, Riot also gave players a few more information on League of Legends: Wild Rift, the mobile and console version of League of Legends. Wild Rift will be heading to North American for its open beta sometime in March and must be launching tw
