Riot Games has shared a short video today teasing League of Legends’ upcoming tank champion.

Earlier this year, Riot Games announced that they are planning to release six new champions a year in League of Legends. So far in 2020, they have already released five of them Sett, Lillia, Yone, Samira, and Seraphine. And in order to fulfill their goal, in the September Champion Roadmap, Riot revealed that the sixth champion is going to be ultra-heavy tank support.

According to Riot Games, the new support champion is an “Iron-willed criminal”. Furthermore, they have also shared that the new support champion wears heavy armor and “known to mount a quick retreat when cornered.”

And today, Riot has officially released a short video teasing the upcoming tank champion “Hurt someone enough, and they just might hurt you back.”

The weapon/lance that’s been teased in the video apparently also matches the weapon that was in the preseason shop splash.

With the teaser being published today, it is now pretty much confirmed that the ultra-heavy tank support is going to be unveiled on Monday, Nov 23rd. And the champion might officially go live in patch 10.25.

Here’s the bounty poster that Riot previously released about the upcoming tank champion:



The empire will pay greatly for the capture and detainment of this runaway criminal. The fugitive is EXTREMELY dangerous, so approach with caution. They are heavily armored and will attack if even slightly provoked. Wear light armor, as reports show warbands have been killed with their heavy gear twisted and shattered, littering the ground around them. The criminal’s been known to mount a quick retreat when cornered, so bringing a highly-trained team is recommended.

If you somehow manage to detain this criminal, please bring them directly to the closest empire building marked with a black rose.
