League of Legends Vex Release Date Announced For New Champion

Riot Games

League of Legends' newest champion, Akshan, has hardly marvelled in the limelight, having suffered greatly in the current meta and has been ridiculed in every lane. The developers have since had to roll out a number of buffs to the ranged marksman who was quickly submerged to become the worst champion in the game.

Despite adapting his kit tentatively, Riot Games is now looking to move on from Akshan, and will be bringing in a "gloomy mage", sooner rather than later. 

League of Legends' Vex is set to be the newest champion to run riot on Summoners Rift, continuing the Rise of the Sentinels' story, which has seen the introduction of the ruination skin lines.

Now, Riot Games have teased when League of Legends' Vex is coming.

League of Legends: Vex Release Date

According to the developers, Vex is set to come in September, barring any major delays - with hope, the Akshan re-developing won't take too much of an effort.

In a blog post, Riot said: "As long as everything goes as planned, Vex should be coming out in September. We're working on getting her source of power (aka her shadow) just right in-game, which is why she's releasing a bit after the Sentinels of Light event.

"In the meantime, we hope you enjoy getting to know the gloomy yordle who holds a special place in our goth kid hearts."

What Abilities Will Vex Have In League of Legends?

Whilst nothing concrete has been released about Vex's abilities, Riot Games have hinted at the mage being capable of shutting down the more frantic champions.

Riot Games previously said: "She gets annoyed as hell with hyperactive champions dashing all around her. It’s enough to make her get serious and start clobbering all lifeforms full of irritating happiness dashing around her like pesky flies.”

This could mean Vex, on quite a juxtaposition from Akshan, can cancel dashes and speed buffs within an area, potentially with a movement stun. It appears her abilities will be focused on a short-range, meaning players up-close and personal will struggle to overcome Vex.

Either way, we're set to see her add a shadow over Summoners Rift in September, finishing off the doom and gloom Ruination range that has cast darkness over the summer.
