Riot has confirmed that Samira will be the next champion to receive an ultimate skin.
Within champion skins, there are different tiers. Each skin tier offers something unique to its user, and they cost differently as well. For example, currently, most of the skins in the game are of epic rarity. Epic skins have unique recall animations, VFX, SFX, and new textures. Next up are legendary skins. Compared to epic skins, legendary skins feel like entirely different champions as Riot completely overhauls their models, animations, and voiceovers.
And finally, there are ultimate skins. They offer the same things as legendary skins with some additional features. They have some unique gimmicks attached to them as well. Additionally, they are some of the most expensive skins in the game.
Released in 2012, Pulsefire Ezreal was the first ultimate skin released in League of Legends. Not only it offered unique animations and voice lines, but it also offered different in-game models based on the match level. And in 2020, Riot released the last ultimate skin in the form of K/DA Seraphine. Afterward, they did not reveal any information about upcoming ultimate skins, let alone release one.
However, Riot Games have recently confirmed that the upcoming League of Legends ultimate skin is on the horizon. Furthermore, the champion who will be receiving this skin is Samira.
The Next Ultimate Skin – Soul Fighters Samira
Riot has confirmed and revealed many new details in the newest dev log. In this video, they revealed many new rank changes, adjustments to clash, updates on the ASUs, and new skins. And in the skin part, Riot has revealed that Samira will receive the next ultimate skin.
As this skin will be part of the huge summer event, we can safely say it will be part of the Soul Fighters skin line. While they did not reveal much about this skin, Riot Games added that more information about it would be revealed in the next dev log. So there’s more reason to be excited.
