It has been a few months since Riot left in the hands of the League of Legends players, the fate of the new skins and the next VGU to be developed during 2021 for some of the game's champions, through a global fan vote.
As part of the results, Udyr was the most voted by League’s community by a landslide, along with the themes of Crime City Nightmare and Debonair 2.0.
While Riot already released some of their progress for the rework of the Spirit Walker, they have now also revealed their plans for the content that will arrive during the second half of 2021, featuring the first artworks for a couple of skins within both skin lines.
Crime City Nightmare
Starting with the Crime City Nightmare collection, this will be based in an urban landscape inspired by the mythical Cthulhu, a fictional character created by the American horror writer H. P. Lovecraft, and which has since earned a place in popular culture.
Through the revealed teasers, the developers revealed they have been working on this collection since January, featuring a range of red and purple colours in dark tones, which matches the black magic that is directly related to the new aspects.
Starting with Akali and Twisted Fate, this skin line will have a total of five skins.
Continuing with the next featured theme, Debonair 2.0 came in second by a very even percentage during the fan vote, which is why Riot decided to create both skin lines.
This collection “will tell the story of a group of champions competing for powerful elixirs in a modern noir world,” with Leona and Malzahar being the first characters to be revealed.
Riot noted the design team is "keeping a pretty good pace" when it comes to creating skins, given their goal of releasing more than 140 of them by the end of 2021.
To close their presentation, a new exclusive skin for Kayn was also teased, without revealing what theme this will belong to. New releases for both Space Groove and Bees! skins will also be launched in the near future, after their great success.
So far there is no exact date for the launch of any of the skins presented today, while more updates are expected to be released in the following weeks.
