League of Legends card video game Legends of Runeterra is getting a brand-new growth called Guardians of the Ancient, and Riot Games launched the add-on’s very first trailer on Monday. The brand-new growth will become part of the Empire of the Ascended set and will present 42 brand-new cards in overall, consisting of 3 brand-new champs, and a couple of brand-new mechanics to the online card video game.

The trailer is told by Zilean, the Chronokeeper, who is supervising the countries of Runeterra as they threaten to tear each other apart. In among Zilean’s vision we can see a living mountain — who looks a little like Malphite — increase to protect its lands, while in another we see Irelia preparing to protect Ionia from Noxian intruders. Things in each vision appear to get alarming, however prior to all hope is lost, Zilean appears to reverse time to offer the protectors a 2nd opportunity.

By Itself, the growth trailer is a terrific animated cinematic, however it’s likewise possible that it might be meaning brand-new mechanics that may welcome gamers when the growth shows up. The Legends of Runeterra site states, “If you don’t like your fate, just pick a new one,” which definitely fits with Zilean’s focus on option and fate at the end of the trailer.

In the meantime however, the designer hasn’t exposed much about the brand-new season beyond 3 cards. Riot will expose brand-new cards every day at 12 p.m. EDT up until the growth is launched on May 5.
