After a month’s worth of update posts, Little Demon Tristana has finally hit the League of Legends Public Beta Environment in today’s cycle and will remain on the server for further testing before going live in a later patch.
Today’s PBE preview shows Little Demon Tristana rocket jumping and lobbing a blue and pink Explosive Charge onto a test dummy. For her recall, she summons two mini Teemos by her side—one in his Little Demon skin and the other dressed as an angel. The Yordle Gunner grabs the angel Teemo, stuffs him in the rocket launcher, and launches him offscreen.
In February, Riot Games asked the League of Legends community for their help in choosing the next Tristana skin. Over four million fans around the globe voted for one of three options, and Little Demon won with 43 percent of the votes.
Since announcing the winner, Riot has been keeping fans up-to-date with the skin’s progress through a series of update posts. In the most recent update, the League of Legends developer detailed the work that had gone into the skin up until the six-week checkpoint, giving insight into the character’s hand-painted 3D model and the mashup of sound clips that became the skin’s ability effects.
Little Demon Tristana will remain on the PBE for further testing before being released on live servers with a later patch. The skin won’t see an official release date, but fans can expect at least two more update posts before the skin goes live.
