Riot Games is putting an end to League’s rotating game mode dry spell. Every major League of Legends in-game event throughout the year will launch alongside a temporary game mode, the developer announced in an update today.
“Last year, you told us that you wanted unique ways to play for every major event,” League’s lead producer on game play Jeremy “Riot Brightmoon” Lee said. “We agree. And this year we’re committed to providing exciting, temporary game modes alongside every major event, starting with AR URF during Mecha Kingdoms.”
All preseason changes to Summoner’s Rift included in the Rise of the Elements update, such as Dragon Souls and Elemental Rifts, will be featured in ARURF when the game mode arrives on the live servers later in the month. Although Riot has yet to provide fans with a release date for the Mecha Kingdoms event, League’s new robotic-themed skins are set to release on Jan. 15.
Riot is also bringing back other popular game modes throughout the year, such as One-for-All, which puts all players of a team on one champion. One-for-All will return “in the first half of the year,” according to Riot Brightmood, although its official release date is unclear.
Fans can expect additional game modes to be announced as the year progresses.
