Riot will celebrate more regional events including Ramadan and through cosmetics this year in Wild Rift.
Like other Riot IPs, Wild Rift is known for its cultural aspects just as much as its gameplay. This cultural aspect includes music, videos, events, and cosmetics. On almost every big occasion, Riot Games holds events for the clients of the respective games.
Many of the events are tied to the real-world cultural festivals. For example, Christmas, Lunar New Year, etc. These are great occasions for exciting events in the game. Players can get lucrative offers on various cosmetics such as skins, emotes, icons, and so on. Loots, such as chests and skin shards can be obtained more easily and frequently through the event missions and passes.
Although Riot has been known for being very inclusive, the events in Wild Rift were held mostly at the global festival. Christmas, Halloween, etc. are examples. However, this year, Riot is trying to include more regional events as well. And as usual, those events will also come with new, exclusive cosmetics.
In this article, see what Riot is up to now with Wild Rift events.
New Regional Events and Cosmetics
So Lunar Extravaganza is just another Lunar New Year-related event. This is one of the more regular events. But this year, on top of that, Riot will be celebrating events based on Ramadan and Carnival in Wild Rift.
Ramadan is one of the most important months for Muslims, leading to the biggest Islamic festival, Eid. Wild Rift is massively popular in Indonesia and its surrounding regions. These regions have a large Muslim population. It’s one of the reasons why Garena servers (now disbanded) used to celebrate Hari Raya locally too.
Carnival is another important event globally that happens for a few days just before Lent. Aside from the religious perspective, the aesthetics of Carnival is very renowned in pop culture. So, it was only a matter of time before it found its way into Wild Rift.
The Carnival is just a few days away. So all the cosmetics such as emotes and icons will be added to the game soon. Ramadan will be starting in March. So we will be seeing cosmetics related to that later. It’s still not sure whether there will be skins or not. But you can be sure about emotes and icons related to both of the events.
