Riot Games releases Sett, announces more new champions for 2020
Melany M. January 14, 2020
The Boss has arrived.
Sett, the first new champion of 2020, is officially available in League of Legends. Sett was introduced in the PBE server in previous weeks and is now ready to hit live servers.
Sett is a juggernaut from the Ionian region who rules the underground fighting pits. This self-made crime boss relies on his fists to get the job done. Sett is intended to be a top laner, but will surely be flexed into other roles.
Like every new champion, Sett will be available in the store for 975 RP. The lucky players that received the “Boss' Calling Card” in the previous weeks can get redeemed it once Sett is available and grab him for free. Sett’s first skin is part of the Mecha Kingdoms thematic that is scheduled for January 15.
Fiddlesticks and Volibear are next
After successfully releasing Sett, the team is focusing its efforts onto the next two champion redesigns for Fiddlesticks and Volibear. These two champions were voted in 2019 by the players and were chosen to receive an update in 2020.
So far, the team has shared a look into the new design of these champions. Fiddlesticks is promising to terrorize the Summoner’s Rift with a more frightening look and set of abilities. Volibear is leaving his armor behind and will be more true to his savage nature.
The development team has been going back and forth with fans about the final Volibear design. As a compromise, Riot Games will be creating a demonic concept skin. Players that own Volibear or buy it during the patch of its release are receiving this new skin for free. Players that acquire Volibear later can purchase the skin on the store.
Riot is opening the polls one more time and players can vote for the champions they want to see updated in 2021.
New champions and more events for LoL Season 10
In 2020, Riot Games is making an effort to link up the new champions with in-game events. This summer, two champions will be released during a special event, including a “blossoming” jungler and one masked stranger.
These are not the only champions coming to the game. One of the champions joining the game has already been seen in the lore. This familiar face joins Senna as one of the established characters from the League of Legends universe that will come to life.
Riot Games released five champions during 2019 and the company is ready to release even more in 2020. And as more champions are coming to the game, the developer will share more details later in the year.
