We finally get a small tease into Arcane Season 2, with a highly anticipated reveal.
Riot Games took the world by surprise when they first produced Arcane, a League of Legends-based cinematic series. Not only did it instantly become an industry benchmark for what’s possible in TV animation, but it was also universally praised for its amazing choreography, direction, character writing, and overall narrative.
Even though it was released in 2021 November, the fanbase kept growing over the years. In fact, Arcane alone reignited the love for League of Legends by bringing back the players Riot had lost. Not to mention, it also inspired thousands of people to at least try out the game.
With such technical and commercial success, Arcane had to follow up with another season. And Riot doesn’t disappoint when it comes to animation. They had instantly announced the arrival of season 2 and more, hinting at covering the greater Runeterra lore. Since then there’s been a lot of hype building up for what we could see in the second season.
We even got a release date set to November 2024, announced last year. But now we also have the first official looks at S2.
In this article, I will present you with the most exciting parts of the 45-second clip.
First Looks at Arcane Season 2
Arcane Season One was all about building up the baseline for the meat of the story. Hence, some familiar faces like Singed, and Viktor looked more premature than we had grown accustomed to seeing in the game. For example, Singed did not look as ‘modified’ in the show as he did in the game.
Well, now in the first looks of Arcane s2, we can see the iconic bandage covering the bottom half of his face with the same grim, dead-looking stares.
Now onto the main dish, Warwick! Ever since we saw Vander in the first season, many hardcore fans could see the potential of him being later augmented into Warwick due to some baseline resemblance in the physique. Not to mention, Singed took Vander in his lab where we could see his arm becoming more animal-like, a clear hint of him turning into Warwick.
Now, we have official confirmation from the first looks. And it is surely something to keep us busy till we officially reach the premiere of Arcanse season 2
Arcane Season 2 Release Date
