Legends of Runeterra Champion skins - How to get

The skins will be available through the LoR in-game store, prices for individual skins are yet to be revealed, however, a bundle selling for 4921 Coins including all four Champion cards and skins will also be available.

The bundle is prorated, meaning that if you own any of the Champion cards you'll only pay for the skins themselves.

A new 2v2 PvP mode will also debut with patch v2.8.0. This is Riot's official description:

"In Duo Queue: Shared Spoils, each teammate plays their own 1v1 match alongside their partner. A choice of unique ‘supply drop’ cards are offered to a player on each team every few rounds; the drops a player doesn’t choose are offered to their teammate, so choose your drops wisely to support your team! If both players on a team win, their team wins. If one player on each team wins their match, they’ll enter into a tiebreaker match to determine the winning team."
