A scheduled post on Dr. Mundo’s upcoming visual gameplay update was unexpectedly released ahead of time today on League of Legends’ official Brazilian site, detailing the champion’s various visual upgrades that are set to be added to the game in the future.
The team behind the champ’s VGU outlined the three main objectives regarding Mundo’s rework: updating his look to better fit League‘s recent art style, enhancing his base skill kit but retaining his bulkiness, and to keep him as a simple champion to play.
Emphasis was placed on making the character more dynamic and having more layers of personality. While Mundo is clearly terrifying as a crazed, brutal, and sadistic “doctor,” he’s also a semi-living, walking caricature, as evidenced by his new tower attacking animation.
The simple champion also had simple effects and effort has been made to make his transformation more bombastic than before. Now, his chemically-enhanced rage renders him big enough to easily burst out of his clothing while bathed in an unhealthy, sickly green glow.
The Rageborn Mundo skin was also showcased, with the champ proudly showing off his new hairstyle and a lighter, more streamlined set of armor.
Dr. Mundo will continue his mindless rampage and practice and it seems like he’ll only look more stunning than ever doing so. A release date for Mundo’s update is still unknown, however.
