The developers from Riot Games have kicked off a new summer event Sentinels of Light that provides new experiences and content in League of Legends, Wild Rift, Legends of Runeterra, Teamfight Tactics, and Valorant. The event also marks the first time ever that a new champion will be released in four Riot games at once!
Akshan, the Rogue Sentinel, swings into the fight against Viego with a sacred relic weapon, exacting vengeance on enemies and redeeming fallen allies.
In League of Legends, Rise of the Sentinels gives players a way to experience League’s story through the eyes of a rookie member of the Sentinels as lasting change comes to the world of Runeterra. 11 new, in-canon skins showcase champions as they appear in Rise of the Sentinels. An event-exclusive Ascended Pantheon Prestige Edition skin depicts an alternate timeline where the human spirit inside Pantheon overcomes Ruination. Ultimate Spellbook, League’s first new event game mode since 2018, releases during Sentinels of Light! Each player gains a second champion’s Ultimate ability to use throughout the game in addition to their own.
If you are more into slinging cards, a mini-expansion is coming to Legends of Runeterra featuring Viego & Akshan, along with 21 other new collectible cards featuring followers, spells, and landmarks focused around the Ruination and the Sentinels of Light.
Additionally, players will be able to choose their allegiance between either the Ruined or Sentinels Event Pass, earning thematic rewards for their side based on who they ally with. A non-canon metagame event will also track how much support each side has. At the end of the Sentinels of Light event, all participating players will receive an in-game reward based on the winning side (regardless of which one they allied with).
When it comes to League of Legends: Wild Rift, Sentinels of Light is the game’s most ambitious event so far, featuring an in-game narrative experience where players can meet and bond with the heroes: Lucian, Senna, Riven, Irelia, Vayne, and Akshan.
Throughout the Wild Rift ecosystem, players can learn more and get involved in the overall story: Sentinels of Light: Steadfast Heart, a series of comics featuring the Sentinels of Light will be released throughout the event, available to read every week in the Wild Rift app or on the official site.
