We might be getting another ASU in 2023.

League of Legends is a pretty old game. It was released in 2008, making it more than ten years old. Despite its age, it is still one of the most popular games on the market. The reason for its popularity is the introduction of new champions. Riot releases a new champion regularly to keep the game fresh and exciting. 

Not only do they add new champions, but they also update the older ones. Riot does various forms of reworking older champions to align them with the current champions. And one of the newest forms of said rework is the ASU or Art and Sustainability Update.

ASU is a form of rework that gives a champion a cosmetic makeover while preserving the original kit. The first ASU Riot performed was Caitlyn. It was a huge success and even increased her play rate by quite a bit. The next in line for an ASU is Ahri. Her ASU was announced in Preseason 2023 and will be released in patch 13.2.

But recently, Riot announced they are planning two ASUs per year so we might be getting another ASU later his year.

Multiple ASU Per Year

Riot Games has previously published only one Art and Sustainability Update every year, but with the company’s new statement, gamers may expect numerous Art and Sustainability Updates to be issued throughout the year. This change is being implemented in response to player input and enabling more frequent and minor game updates.

The increased frequency of ASUs is expected to bring several benefits to the game and its players. For one, it will allow older champions to be brought into the spotlight. Which can help keep the game feeling new and exciting for players.
