Explore Vi’s backstory through the Council Archives
Nov 15, 2021
As Arcane’s third and final act approaches, fans are getting yet another chance to dip their toes into the vast world of Runeterra by exploring the Piltover Council Archives once more to uncover Vi’s criminal records.
Previously, fans were able to leaf through Jayce’s diary and find out details of Arcane’s story in the week between acts. RiotX Arcane is running through its last couple of events in this week’s Undercity Nights, which will touch all of their properties.
Riot’s browser-based Council Archives game has been letting fans click their way through rewards, lore easter eggs, and more as Arcane’s release has rolled out following the 2021 World Championship finals on November 6. The Council Archives has been an interactive experience meant to immerse fans into the city of Piltover and sate their hunger for more League of Legends storytelling in between three-episode long acts every week.
This week, Violet is taking center stage after her wild adventures through Zaun with Caitlyn in the second act. Vi’s criminal records and transcripts can be investigated for new clues about her time in prison. The four focal champions, Jayce, Vi, Caitlyn, and Jinx, will each get their own interactive experience where curious fans can expand the world of Arcane and glean new details about their favorite characters.
When do Caitlyn and Jinx Council Archives release?
Caitlyn and Jinx have yet to receive their Council Archive experiences, but each will be unlocked in the coming weeks. Caitlyn’s Council Archives will be released on November 22, while Jinx mains will have to wait until November 24 to check out Powder’s records.
The RiotX Arcane event has been an unprecedented publicity effort on Riot’s part, with collaborations, cosmetics, and player involvements aplenty throughout the month-long celebration. Arcane’s success means fans of these immersive narrative moments can be expecting more down the line, even if it does take a few years.
