Riot releases the LoL Champion Roadmap every few months. We get information through the roadmap about new League of Legends champions, changes and more. Riot is also working on other champions. 

There is some pretty interesting stuff happening,  like more champions in 2023, as well as champion updates coming soon. Are you ready to learn more? Mid-scope updates

LoL Champion Roadmap: How Many Champions to Expect in 2022

Riot recently shared some news Information about the upcoming champions They’re going to slow down champion releases in order to make sure champions are ready for release.. This should prevent champions from being too OP after release, as Viego or Zeri were.

“While we don’t know exactly how many champions we’ll release this year, it should be pretty similar to last year.”

We shouldn’t be too optimistic about another champion in 2021 Riot. Riot has already released four champions in 2021, and four of them have made it onto the rift this season. There are however a few more champion surprises that should be released by Riot in 2022. 

Riot’s Next Champion:

We will be receiving the next champion from Nazumah (a new region in Shurima). They are unique and unlike any other. Shuriman folk League of Legends has been a place where we have met. They are not willing to bow to Azir. Instead, they fight against giant monsters to make it to the Oasis. 

500 years later, the society celebrates K’Sante, the leader of Nazumah warriors, and one of their strongest living, even though he fought in the conflict. The largest animal From the desert. All of this sounds very exciting, and we are so excited for the brand-new top lane tank. 

K’Sante used a unique weapon, the Ntofo, according to August 2022 champion roadmap. He made it out of the hide from the giant monster he fought. Although it is a blunt weapon, he can shatter it to make sharp daggers, before it turns back into a blunt item. Insane, eh? 

Riot Planning Aurelion Sol Rework

The next big thing Riot is planning is a CGU, which is going to be a comprehensive gameplay update for one specific champion. This will happen for Aurelion Sol. His entire kit will be wiped clean and rebuilt from scratch. 

  • Curious to know more about a CGU? You can read our entire article about CGUs!

Riot revealed new abilities and Aurelion Sol will be a super strong late-game mage. He will be breathing fire and flying, and if you’re skilled enough, you might even be able fly and breathe fire simultaneously. This should be just as much fun as it sounds. 

VGU Concepts of Skarner

Riot is just beginning to look at the concepts for Skarner’s VGU. This makes perfect sense as Udyr still needs to finish his work. Some of the conceptual re-designs were shared by them for LoL’s iconic scorpion. Which is your favourite?

Riot Announces New Darkin Assassin

We cannot ignore the announcement of the upcoming Darkin Assassin. Yes, that’s right another Darkin is on the rift. Whether this champion is a human or a creature is not yet known with Reav3 referring to them as ‘who’ or ‘what’. 

The Darkin comes as a dagger, and we know this because it looks like a dagger. Sexy So I’m hoping that this will be an assassin who is insanely entertaining for us all. The concept art already looks great. More Riot, please! 

New Ixtal Champion – A Male Enchanter

Yes, that’s right. Also, we will be receiving a new Ixtal championThey will be male enchanters. Riot is in early development and will be released in 2023. We are excited about this development and can’t wait for them to be tested. 

These champions do look promising and with the last tank to come in the Form of Rell As a support, K’Sante is even more exciting. What will the pride and glory of Nazumah look? We hope to see them as a human champion. Monster champions We are the future.
