If you like new skins, unlockables, and limited-time events for all your favorite games from Riot then Christmas has come early for you. Riot will soon be introducing some special promotions across League of Legends, Valorant, Teamfight Tactics, Wild Rift, and Legends of Runeterra in order to celebrate the release of the new Arcane animated series on Netflix!
Arcane Premiere Super Weekend
Saturday, November 6th is a big day for the League of Legends community for 2 reasons. The first, is because it will be the grand finals of the World Championships between Edward Gaming and DAMWON Gaming starting at 5am PST. The games will open with an “Arcade-themed show” with musical performances by Imagine Dragons, Bea Miller, JID, and Denzel Curry.
The second reason is because it’s of course the world premiere of Riot’s animated series “Arcane”. The show is described as a character-driven story that details the early lives and struggles of the League of Legends characters Vi and Jinx, as well as some familiar faces in Piltover and Zaun such as Jayce, Viktor, Caitlyn, and Heimerdinger. Only the first 3 episodes known as “Act 1” will be available, with Acts 2 and 3 releasing on November 13th and 20th respectively.
All episodes can be watched on Netflix, but the premiere episode will be hosted on Twitch and co-streamed by many of your favorite League content creators. If all else fails, you can also sign into your Riot account on Arcane.com and watch that way. So long as your Twitch or Riot account is linked while watching, special drops such as capsules, emotes, and a “Fishbones” Gun Buddy in Valorant will be rewarded to you in-game after the premiere.
For League of Legends
For Riot’s flagship title, League players will be receiving FREE Arcane-themed skins for Vi, Jinx, Caitlyn, and Jayce inspired by the show! In addition to aesthetic changes on the Rift, this all coincides with the beginning of the 2022 Preseason where we’ll be getting new runes, items, and the new Chemtech and Hextech Drakes. Lastly, there’s also promised to be 2 new events that will be revealed in the next week or so.
Thanks to the Arcane release, Valorant players will receive a free RiotX Arcane Pass, free in-game collectible items, and a new in-game skin set called Arcane Collectors. But certainly what all players are eagerly anticipating is the release of the new sentinel agent Chamber - who looks like he could belong in the show himself.
For Teamfight Tactics
Most of what we can expect from TFT will be happening as early as November 3rd as that’s when the new Set 6, aka Gizmos & Gadgets, will be live on servers! You can of course expect new synergies and champions, but special from the release of Arcane is new “Chibi Legends” which are exactly the same as the Little Legends that waddle around your TFT screen before, but this time they’re cute, mini versions of Jinx, Vi, or Ekko.
For Wild Rift
There’s plenty to look forward to for mobile Wild Rift players as there’ll be an Arcane Experience in-game event as well as free Arcane Jinx and Vi skins for everyone! In addition, Jayce and Caitlyn finally make their Wild Rift debut and there will be some themed weeks in Guild vs Guild with both Jinx and Vi.
For Legends of Runeterra
Last but not least we have Jayce coming to everyone’s favorite League-themed card game, as well as a new permanent game mode called “The Path of Champions”. There will of course be an Arcane-themed event pass but there will also be new thematic support cards from Piltover and Zaun.
