League of Legends fans have been requesting a new game mode for a while now, and they might finally be getting one this year.
Riot Games has announced that a new game mode will be released this summer. Riot teased the new Game mode as part of their apology video for the catastrophic Season 2023 Cinematic “The Brink of Infinity” and their lack of communication.
In the Video, Riot announced that the game mode would be somewhat different from the typical game modes like ARAM, URF or Nexis Blitz. It will be an 8-player 2v2v2v2 deathmatch.
Given the lack of new game modes in recent years, unveiling a new game mode seems like a breath of fresh air. It will also benefit the player base, particularly casual players, considering how competitive League of Legends has become. That being said, the announcement of the new game mode is definitely a step in the right direction.

Not much information has been revealed about the game mode yet, but here’s what we know so far.
According to Riot Meddler, the game mode will be a deathmatch-type mode. The mode will pit four teams of two against each other in “a series of deathmatch-like rounds”. The players will be able to level up and purchase items between the rounds.
Additionally, a new thematic for the event will also be introduced. They also assured the fans that it would not have a Visual Novel-like element.
Riot intends to release the game in the summer of 2023, which is now in the prototype stage. Riot will also reveal additional details about this game mode in March.
