Although most League of Legends players have one eye on the 2021 World Championship and the next big update, it's hard to ignore that there's a certain chill in the air; and that means Halloween events!

Since the first League Harrowing event in 2010, Riot Games has ensured to provide LOL players with an updated version of the event every year during Halloween. Harrowing introduces various new skins, game modes, and more with every new iteration of this event.

As such, it's expected that the Halloween event will return to League of Legends in 2021 too. With October starting this week, hopefully, we'll see some spooky teasers soon for this year's event, and here's everything we know about the event so far.

Considering the fact that Riot Games hasn't revealed any information about Harrowing 2021 with less than a week to go for Halloween, it seems like there might not be a season event after all. However, the introduction of the Dragonmancer skin series does have a spooky aura about it.

Having said that, the community can only wait for an official release from the developers at this point. Nevertheless, we all hope that there will be a Harrowing in-game event in 2021 as well.

With just a few days to go before Halloween 2021, the entire League of Legends community is still waiting for the release of Harrowing 2021. Given that LoL Worlds 2021 is still underway, the developers could be delaying the seasonal event by a few days.

However, this delay is extremely agonising for the entire community that has been waiting for a very long time now.

Even though we are deep in the spooky season, League of Legends fans are still waiting eagerly for the release of Harrowing 2021. Having said that, it is expected that the seasonal event will be going live on the main game client very soon.

Apart from that, it is also being speculated that Riot Games might have some big plans for the upcoming in-game event. This speculation has been fueled mostly by the delay in the event's release in 2021.

While there has been no official announcement from Riot Games regarding Harrowing 2021, there have been heavy speculations that the seasonal event will release later today.

This speculation has been based on the fact that update 11.21 is expected to release today and it is also supposed to be the last patch scheduled for release before Halloween 2021.

Hopefully we could see the launch of The Harrowing event this week, with the launch of patch 11.21. If it does arrive we could see some early news ahead of the launch of the new update on Wednesday.

11 October 2021 -

There's still a while to go before Harrowing returns to League of Legends, but hopefully, we'll see or hear more about the event this week before the mode (theoretically) launches on October 20 along with the launch of Patch 11.21.

League of Legends Patch 11.20 is set for release this week and hopefully, with it we'll get more info on what to expect when it comes to Halloween events in LoL. We suspect the Harrowing won't arrive until the next update, Patch 11.30 released on October 20.

21 September 2021 -

League of Legends Spanish Twitter account appears to have shared our first look at the next new skins and splash art coming to the game, potentially in Patch 11.20.

As you can see (below), there's a certain Halloween flair to the skins and art, which suggests we might not have long to wait until League's spooky event returns.

The skins appear to be part of a new skin series called "Tales from Rift 2021" and includes new skins for Poppy, Fiora, Yuumi, Syndra, Nami, as well as a new prestige Bewitching Morgana skin.

Harrowing Game Modes

There have been two custom game modes for Harrowing in League of Legends. Considering the release of the Ultimate Spellbook game mode with update 11.14, it seems highly unlikely for Riot Games to introduce another game mode for the Halloween-themed event in League of Legends.

However, considering "The Teemoing" and "Doom Bots of Doom" game modes from previous iterations of the Halloween event, it wouldn't entirely be a surprise if Riot Games does introduce a new game mode for Harrowing 2021.
