New Teamfight Tactics champions, Hextech Augments, and traits within Set 6.5 Neon Nights are set to arrive via Patch 12.4. 

Scheduled to launch on the live servers on Feb. 16, TFT Set 6.5 Neon Nights is the Mid-Set update. New Little Legends like Project Abyssia become available on Feb. 16, along with a new battle pass. A soft ranked reset will take place, moving players down one tier from their current rank—with an exception for Master ranked players and above, dropping to Diamond IV.

A new TFT Set 6.5 cheat sheet outlines all the new traits. Over 80 new Hextech Augments are getting added and every Neon Nights champion and their ability can be found here. And all final PBE updates can be found here.

Here are the full notes for TFT Patch 12.4.
