Aphelios is receiving a new skin, as the boyband ‘Heartsteel’ debuts with their new song.
There is a popular joke in the League of Legends community where the fans call Riot a music and animation industry that happens to make games as a side project. There’s obviously a good reason for that. Riot has always excelled at creating top-notch music and videos.
After the successes of Pentakill, K/DA, and True Damage, Riot introduces us to a musical band dedicated to the boys. Enter ‘Heartsteel‘, the new boyband, consisting of K’Sante, Sett, Aphelios, Ezreal, Kayn and Yone. These stylish and fashion-aware boys have shown their energetic performance in the debut song ‘Paranoia‘. The animation and art direction have been off the charts with this one. I would say it even topped the visuals from K/DA ‘Popstars’ and potentially giving even ‘The Call’ a run for its money in terms of animation.
Ok now let’s talk about the skins. As usual, Riot has released a new skin line for the Heartsteel band, following the footsteps of the previous bands. All the skins look carefully crafted with each character expressing their unique personalities in a more ‘rockstar’ fashion. With that said, let me introduce you to Heartsteel Aphelios so you can judge for yourself.
The Heartsteel Aphelios skin will be categorized under ‘Epic’ tier. Hence, it will be available for 1350 RP.
Heartsteel Aphelios along with other Heartsteel band members’ skins, will be released on patch 13.22, November 8, 2023.
