League of Legends Details Upcoming Champion Overhaul

League of Legends is well known for its wide selection of champions of all shapes and sizes with unique backgrounds and fantastic abilities. However, all champions of League of Legends have been big hits with players for one reason or another, and Riot Games is doing what it can to improve them.

A recent announcement from League of Legends reveals the new champion roadmap highlighting updates to various champions. The post mentions that champion production has been slowed down, but the devs are making sure each champion gets the time and attention it needs before it’s released. The post takes a look at three champions who will be receiving in-game changes in one form or another.

The three champions who will receive visual and gameplay updates, or VGUs, in the game include warrior Udyr, star dragon Aurelion Sol, and champion Skarner. The post reveals that Udyr’s base is complete with development now focused on his catalog of skins for the game. The one getting the most attention is Udyr’s Spirit Guard skin, where the goal is to balance his core essence while reflecting his time in Ionia and keeping the same animals Udyr had before VGU.

The post reveals that the Aurelion Sol update will be gameplay-focused. According to the post, it first excited gamers when it was first revealed, but then it was dropped at a surprising rate. He indicates that this was mainly due to his play kit not being able to live up to the hype and fantasy of playing the character. So, the developers worked to change that by giving it a full gameplay or COG update. With the update of the T&Cs in League of Legendsthe developers rebuilt the Aurelion Sol game kit from scratch using the same model, theme, and narrative instead of making small changes.

Aurelion Sol will be the first character to receive COG, and if the results are good, other champions like him in League of Legends may receive similar updates. The developers also want to emphasize the dragon aspect of the character while adding a fresh take on his star-forging gameplay. The developers are currently looking to release Aurelion Sol closer to the end of this year, but nothing is set in stone.

Then the post talks about Skarner, winner of the previous League of Legends VGU survey earlier this year. The developers have yet to start on his VGU at the time of writing, but the post says he will start soon. The post shares artwork done by artist Larry “BravoRay” Ray for Skarner. The art contains four rows of sketches exploring different visual directions for Skarner, but these are all early ideas and nothing is locked in yet.
