Riot Games has confirmed that after years of user requests, exclusive Wild Rift skins will be made available for the famous MOBA game’s PC edition
Riot’s League Executive Producer, Jeremy “Brightmoon” Lee, and League Studio Head, Andrei “Meddler” van Roon, followed up on their previous month’s video to talk Riot Games’ future plans for League of Legends skins.
Exclusive League of Legends: Wild Rift skins will be published on the PC edition of the game, according to the developers. The developers disclosed that the first three Wild Rift skins to be presented in League of Legends will be Star Guardian Seraphine, Redeemed Star Guardian Xayah, and Redeemed Star Guardian Rakan.
“We are going to start by looking at porting over some of the most commonly requested skins, with Star Guardian Seraphine, Redeemed Xayah and Rakan, and hopefully more in the future depending on how those go.”
Riot also revealed that some of the mobile-only themes will be accessible on the Desktop client, three years after the introduction of the first Wild Rift exclusive skin, Glorious Tryndamere.
Brightmoon and Meddler’s comments have undoubtedly uplifted the community, though they did not provide fans with a precise timeline for when these skins will be available in the game’s PC edition.
Since the release of the mobile edition of League, players have requested that Wild Rift skins be made available on PC as well. The detailed models of the champions and exclusive skins, as well as the various themes unique to Wild Rift, have made PC players jealous, as they are sometimes trapped with old and outdated models.
Furthermore, Riot has stated that they are thinking about upgrading some of the older cosmetics, such as Rugged Garen, which were introduced long before the idea of Wild Rift itself.
“In terms of Splash-Art, we are also still working, of course, to update some of League’s older Splash-Art; in some cases porting over Wild Rift’s Splashes, in other cases doing some new ones inspired by some of the Wild Rift Splashes.”
While there are currently no dates for when new cosmetics and modifications to existing skins will be accessible, League of Legends players can expect to see more updated models on the Rift in the near future. Riot has promised to keep players in the know about future developments.
