Swain’s rework is finally almost here, and today Riot dropped the full reveal on the official League of Legends Facebook page.

The puke-green colors, oddly-proportioned birds, and hilariously awful animations of ye olden Swain will now be nothing more than a fading memory as we bask in the awesomeness of the new and improved Noxian Grand General.

He’s mean, he’s full of evil-looking shades of red, and he’s edgier than a preteen at a My Chemical Romance concert. Say hello to the new Swain.

Luckily for everyone that will soon be shouting “Don’t worry, I’m a Swain main” now in their solo queue lobbies, we won’t have to wait very long to play him.

He’s going to be included in the Patch 8.3 PBE testing cycle, and with Patch 8.2 going live tomorrow he should be released into the live game in a little over two weeks.
