Riot Games reveal next major TFT update, Set 7: Dragonlands
According to Riot Games, Teamfight Tactics Set 7: Dragonlands will launch globally for all players alongside Patch 12.11 on 8th June 2022. However, the new set will be available earlier for testing on Riot Games' Public Beta Environment (PBE) server starting on 24th May 2022 in the early afternoon (Pacific Time).
Dragonlands is expected to further differentiate Teamfight Tactics from competitor titles within the auto battler genre by redefining everything from champions to mechanics, strategies, and cosmetics.
Teamfight Tactics' Executive Producer, Geoff Virtue, commented, "We see Teamfight Tactics as a key leader pushing the strategy game genre forward by broadening the appeal of the space."

Virtue continued, citing "bold bets" and "big ambitions" for Teamfight Tactics and its latest set. "Dragonlands is just the beginning of the new experiences that we look to deliver to global players and people who love strategy games," Virtue added.
Riot Games notes that each new set allows players to explore new worlds, build new teams, and find innovative ways to dominate the competition. Beyond this, each set is viewed as an opportunity to improve players' gameplay experience, appropriating feedback and learning from the success or failures.
Furthermore, Set 6: Gizmos & Gadgets' Augments mechanic, which allowed players to unlock bonuses at critical points in the game, will return in Dragonlands, along with Double Up and Hyper Roll alternate game modes.
It's hard to believe that Teamfight Tactics only launched three years ago, having originated from Riot Games' popular MOBA title, League of Legends.
However, since its launch in 2019, Teamfight Tactics has garnered over 1.5 billion hours played, evolving into a unique title with an expansive community of more than 80 million players globally.
Teamfight Tactics is currently available on PC and Mobile. Set 7: Dragonlands will release publically on 8th June 2022.
