League of Legends Snowdown 2022 - Release Date, Skins & More

League of Legends loves to spoil players with seasonal events at special times of the year. Whether it be Valentine's, New Year, Summer, or Halloween, there is always a chance some brand-new skins will make their way to Summoner's Rift. 

Additionally, on most occasions, not only do players receive a set of themed skins, but new game modes, decorations added to maps, and plenty of other rewards as well!

League of Legends 2022 Snowdown is fast approaching, so here's everything we know about the frosty festival ahead!

Update on 9 December 2022 - This article was updated and checked for the latest 'League of Legends Snowdown Event' news and leaks.

With a new League of Legends seasonal event, you can bet that there will be some new skins to go along with it!

While we usually receive a Christmas-themed event and skins, this is no longer guaranteed. As seen in 2020, the Christmas event was replaced by the Battle Queen event with an entirely new line of skins. 

Additionally, while it is highly likely that new Champions will receive these holiday season skins, it is by no means guaranteed. Both Ziggs and Poppy have received multiple skins at this time of year, so literally, when it comes to future Snowdown events, anything could happen!
