In the newest patch preview, Riot Games teased two of the upcoming Wild Rift champions.
Recently Riot released the preview for patch 4.3. For this patch, they have announced many new and interesting contents.
Firstly in terms of champions, we are receiving 3 of them. They are Nilah, Vladimir, and Hecarim. Vladimir also received a huge visual makeover. While graphically, it is better than the PC counterpart; many players are still unsatisfied with this update. But given more time, we can expect that players will get used to it and might even prefer it over PC Vladimir.
Additionally, for this new patch, Riot has announced that Janna and Annie will receive some massive rework in Wild Rift. For what kind of rework, it is still unclear. But we can expect some more information about this soon.
Moreover, Riot is also revamping the rune system in this update. This update to the rune system will be more streamlined, similar to what we see in the PC version.
Additionally, in every patch preview, Riot teases some of the upcoming champions that are coming in one of the future patches. In the preview, they teased Nilah. And the one before that, Riot teased Volibear. Similarly, in this patch preview, they are teasing two of the upcoming champions coming to Wild Rift.

Wild Rift Patch 4.4 Champions Teased
Riot has teased two champions coming in patch 4.4. They are:
Fiddlesticks is an AP assassin who relies on killing unsuspecting opponents. He is a jungle champion, and his clear is very fast. Furthermore, his kit is filled with CC, making every fight easier for Fiddlesticks. On the right hand, he is one of the most broken champions. Additionally, since he is an AP champion, he can scale in all stages of the game. So in ranked, Fiddlesticks becomes one of the must-ban champions.
Similar to Fiddlesticks, Nocturne is also an assassin. But instead of AP, Nocturne is an AD champion. He is fairly simple to play with. However, he cannot scale well late game since he is an AD assassin. But to terrorize in lower ELO, Nocturne is one of the best picks.
Both Nocturne and Fiddlesticks are expected to come out on patch 4.4, scheduled to release on Oct 24, 2023.
