Without further ado, let's check out what are the most important new things coming to Wild Rift with patch 2.4.
Wild Rift 2.4 patch new champions
Akshan, the Rogue Sentinel
Akshan is the latest champion to be added to the game. He boasts a marksman-assassin playstyle, perfect for mid lane, with stealth when he's close to terrain and a grappling hook he can use to catch up with his targets. He can also avenge his allies by killing their killer, which earns him bonus gold and lowers the killed ally's respawn timer.
Brand, the Burning Vengeance
Brand is another champion to join the Wild Rift with 2.4. He is a fire mage who can be both mid lane or a support champion. He has a set of abilities that gain new powers while his opponents are set on fire, and his ultimate is called Pyroclasam, a devastating torrent of fire "that can reduce your enemies to ashes."
Nunu & Willump
The chilling duo of Nunu & Willump is joining Wild Rift as well. This jungler duo is going to start rolling snowballs in September when lands on your smartphones.
