What To Expect

Riot has confirmed that it will feature content from League of Legends, Legends of Runeterra, Teamfight Tactics and League of Legends Wild Rift.

Interestingly, Riot hasn't mentioned Valorant, nor hinted at The Ruined King being part of the event.

League of Legends

As the biggest game on show, expect League of Legends to get a fair amount of time to shine.

With patch 11.1 expected to go live on January 6th and bringing huge changes to Champions, it's very likely that Riot will be showcasing the tweaks.

Legends of Runeterra

Riot's endlessly addictive card game had a great 2020 follow its launch in April, and subsequent expansions have added the regions of Bilgewater and Targon.

Could it be time for a new region, with new champions, too? Here's hoping.

Teamfight Tactics

Riot's auto-battler is close to kicking off its Festival of Beasts event, so expect some footage of new champions and skins to be found in the Battle Pass.

League of Legends: Wild Rift

Wild Rift's 2.0 patch is here and it'll add new Champions, but it'll be interesting to see who else is coming down the pike in 2021 for the mobile MOBA.

The roster of over 40 characters pales in comparison to League of Legends' over 100 – could we see some fan-favourites announced?
