Yordles are coming to the Rift.

19:00, 07 Jan 2021

League of Legends: Wild Rift 2.0 patch update has been officially released on the open beta testing servers and has added a bunch of new champions, skins, and exciting new features like Party Finder, Latency Indicators, Social Sharing, Map Description, Tutorial Optimisation, and Champion Mastery Emotes, along with some balance changes and improvements. Now with this update, a total of five yordle champions were announced that will be added soon to the game and are listed below. However, the abilities for the mobile version, cost, and exact release date of these champions are yet to be announced.

Corki, The Daring Bombardier

League of Legends: Wild Rift 2.0 Update New Champions

Don’t be fooled by appearances because Corki is much more than just a magnificent moustache. Enamoured with all things aircraft, the Daring Bombardier often ventures beyond Bandle City in pursuit of aerospace innovation found only in the inventive city of Piltover. He keeps a watchful eye on the sky for enemy bogies as the head of the Screaming Yipsnakes.

Kennen, The Heart Of The Tempest

League of Legends: Wild Rift 2.0 Update New Champions

In the space between a lightning flash and a thunderboom, one yordle stands as the most senior member of the Kinkou Order. Dedicated to preserving the sacred balance that surges through Ionia, Kennen uses his centuries of knowledge to protect the world he’s come to love. But as the Heart of the Tempest, he also possesses the devastating power of the storm—and he’s not afraid to use it.

Tristana, The Yordle Gunner

League of Legends: Wild Rift 2.0 Update New Champions

The inhabitants of Bandle City are curious by nature, but few are lured by the promise of adventure in Runeterra, quite like Tristana. Inspired by tales of epic battles and brave fighters, Tristana knew she was destined for a life of explosive action (often literally). With plenty of firepower in tow thanks to her trusty cannon Boomer, the Yordle Gunner seeks to become the stuff of legends.

Lulu, The Fae Sorceress

League of Legends: Wild Rift 2.0 Update New Champions

Reality is what you make of it—or at least what Lulu makes of it! The Fae Sorceress shapes the world to her whim as she travels Runeterra with her fairy friend, Pix. Through her magic, Lulu enchants and fantasies everything around her, sometimes with disastrous, if well-meaning, consequences.

Teemo, The Swift Scout

League of Legends: Wild Rift 2.0 Update New Champions

Never underestimate the power of the Scout’s code! Anyone who makes that mistake (and many who don’t) must contend with Teemo, one of Bandle City’s most formidable protectors. Though small in stature, the Swift Scout does not shrink in the face of danger. Instead, he travels the world with boundless optimism and courage, seeking to earn every merit badge (and causing a little bit of mayhem on the way).
