With the big Rise of the Sentinels event behind us, Riot Games will soon be releasing brand new cosmetics including the long-awaited Crime City Nightmare skin line and Phoenix cosmetics.
The two new skin lines will likely hit the Public Beta Environment (PBE) soon, having fans playing as some of the baddest criminals in Runeterra or take on one of the new and unexpected Phoenix skins. The Crime City Nightmare skin line has been known to happen for months now and will include the likes of Akali, Shaco, Darius, Twisted Fate, Graves, and Zyra in the first rotation. The Phoenix skin line will start out a bit smaller by including Xayah, Seraphine, and of course Anivia.

The new skin splash arts were originally discovered on the Chinese LoL Weibo earlier today but didn’t include any video footage just yet. Instead, it showed some amazing splash arts of all the champions which all look very promising.
Some of the most significant ones look to be the Crime City Nightmare ones, which definitely seems to be exactly how fans imagined when voting for this exact skin line earlier this year. With a smooth criminal theme for all champions, the six nightmares will be presented in a white and purple theme. All will be wearing stylish clothes but there is no doubt that these skins will still haunt Summoner’s Rift.
The Phoenix skins will be in a completely different theme, with colorful appearances for Xayah and Seraphine who both look incredibly majestic. All this while Anivia has turned into a true Phoenix in white and golden colors. This will likely be a dream skin for most Anivia mains, which fits the overall theme perfectly.
Crime City Zyra
Crime City Shaco
Crime City Twisted Fate
Crime City Akali
Crime City Darius
Crime City Graves
With these splash arts still being very recently discovered, it’s unknown when these skins will be up for purchase. Currently, it’s very likely that all skins will hit the PBE very soon and officially release to the live servers with patch 11.17 on August 25.
