As 2021 kicks off in earnest, Riot Games has started to reveal its roadmap for League of Legends throughout the year. The plan for the 2021 season aims to add six new champions, the first of which has been revealed as jungler Viego the Ruined King.
In a video laying out Riot’s champion-related plans for 2021, Ryan “Reav3” Mireles said that new champions for the year will follow a similar plan to 2020’s releases, with Riot planning to release one new character for every lane position throughout the year, and two for mid lane.
“We believe that players shouldn’t have to go longer than a year without getting a new champion to try in their role,” Reav3 explained. While the video specifically mentions four confirmed champions tied to the Ruined King, 2021 will get six new character if Riot matches its 2020 champion output as promised.
