League of Legends: Hotfix Update 10.25b Patch Notes - Release Date And Time

A new update is coming to League of Legends, just one week after the big 10.25 update landed.

This update is a far smaller one, coming in the form of a Hotfix, but has some significant changes to both items and Champions.

Riot were being truthful when they said that 10.25 would be the final update of 2020.

Here's what's being changed in LoL.

LoL Patch 10.25b Release Date

There's no exact date other than Mark Yetter, Riot's Gameplay Design Director for League of Legends, saying that it is coming "next week".

In a more recent tweet, he has acknowledged the update is coming in the afternoon of the 16th December.

These updates are already on the PBE for players to try out.
