In a dastardly stroke, Riot Games has announced the newest champion for League of Legends during our top MOBA-writer’s week-long break. We at Kotaku are now reconsidering our vacation policies.
The new champion is called Kindred: The Eternal Hunters and is described by Riot as “a marksman designed for a life in the jungle.”
Here’s more: “Kindred prowls through camps, marking enemy champions for death and permanently growing in strength if they’re able to carry out the promised sentence. But just as Kindred brings death, so can they delay it. Should their allies meet deadly force, Lamb - one of Kindred’s two spirits - can create a large blessed zone that, for a few valuable seconds, denies the ever-creeping and inevitable clutches of death.”
Yannick LeJacq, who usually prowls through the Kotaku camp, would be able to tell you more about what this means. But he’s not here now. Best to go to Riot’s site to find out the rest.
