The year’s end is rapidly approaching and Riot Games is already planning some big things for League of Legends in 2022.

For the upcoming preseason, the developers will be adding a plethora of new items to the in-game shop to inject more variance into many builds that are made in today’s meta. In September, League‘s director of gameplay production Jeremy “Brightmoon” Lee revealed that the team was looking to add some flavor to item paths by introducing two new mage items, two new tank items, and an item for assassin champions.

Here are all the new items headed to League for the 2022 preseason.
