Valorant may be getting LoL crossover with Ruination skin line

League of Legends is about to begin its enormous Ruination event and it may appear in Valorant as well. 

A new skin line has been leaked, which hints that the League of Legends universe is officially coming to Valorant. The skin bundle was first teased in Kay/O reveal, in which the new agent was sporting a glowing, blue Guardian. 

League of Legends’ Sentinels of Light event will begin on July 8 with a number of features. While it’s already known that the event will extend to other games in the LoL franchise including LoL: Wild Rift, Teamfight Tactics, and Legends of Runeterra, leaks suggest it will spill out across all Riot Games titles, including Valorant. 

Valorant hasn’t yet had a formal crossover with any other game title, so this would be the first event to formally link the two games. A crossover between Valorant and League of Legends was always an inevitability, but it’s interesting that it’s coming this soon and in this way. 

Valorant’s crossover with League of Legends is coming soon

The central story of League of Legends’ Ruination event is the storyline of playable champion Viego, the ruler of a long-lost kingdom who triggered the ruination when trying to revive his departed wife. Similar cinematics and story hints were spotted in Valorant’s Kay/O teaser, as he handled a rifle that shared the color scheme of Viego. The agent shot down an enemy Reyna, who hovered in the air with a crown over her head. This was the finisher for the skin, which also tied into Viego’s abilities in LoL. 

Players speculated that this scene meant that Riot Games was finally doing a crossover between LoL and celebrated shooter. While it’s unknown how many weapons will be available in the ruination bundle, players should expect things to start with the Guardian that was shown. Many players also guessed that the collection might feature Viego’s Sword as the Melee weapon. 

When does the Rise of the Sentinels event start?

The Rise of the Sentinels event starts on July 8, with patch 11.14. Valorant players should expect a brand new skin bundle to enter the market around the same date. 

The developer hasn’t rolled out a new skin bundle in quite a while, so Valorant players like League of Legends should save up their cash. The new collection will be the first-ever crossover skins that will have a proper back story and history.
