Riot Games Announces Sentinels Of Light Summer Blockbuster Event


Riot Games has officially kicked off their multi-game summer blockbuster event, Sentinels Of Light, with a brand new cinematic. Building on the success of 2020’s Spirit Blossom, each of Riot’s five games (League Of Legends, League Of Legends Wild Rift, Legends Of Runeterra, Teamfight Tactics, and VALORANT) will offer thematically-linked experiences so every Riot fan can join in, regardless of which game they play.

Riot has provided details for each game’s biggest additions to look forward to:

Akshan, the Rogue Sentinel

Akshan, the Rogue Sentinel, is Riot’s first champion releasing across all League-universe games during the same event! He swings into the fight against Ruination with a sacred relic weapon, exacting vengeance on enemies and redeeming fallen allies.

An event-exclusive Ascended Pantheon Prestige Edition skin depicts an alternate timeline where the human spirit inside Pantheon overcomes Ruination.

Ultimate Spellbook, League’s first new event game mode since 2018, releases during Sentinels of Light! Each player gains a second champion’s Ultimate ability to use throughout the game in addition to their own.
