Riot Games Announces Sentinels Of Light Summer Blockbuster Event

Riot Games has officially kicked off their multi-game summer blockbuster event, Sentinels Of Light, with a brand new cinematic. Building on the success of 2020’s Spirit Blossom, each of Riot’s five games (League Of Legends, League Of Legends Wild Rift, Legends Of Runeterra, Teamfight Tactics, and VALORANT) will offer thematically-linked experiences so every Riot fan can join in, regardless of which game they play.

Riot has provided details for each game’s biggest additions to look forward to:

Akshan, the Rogue Sentinel

Akshan, the Rogue Sentinel, is Riot’s first champion releasing across all League-universe games during the same event! He swings into the fight against Ruination with a sacred relic weapon, exacting vengeance on enemies and redeeming fallen allies.

Akshan releases on the following dates (PT):

  • Legends of Runeterra on 14 July 2021.
  • Teamfight Tactics on 21 July 2021.
  • League of Legends on 22 July 2021 (including a Cyber Pop Akshan skin).
  • League of Legends: Wild Rift on 27 July 2021 (including a Battle Academia Akshan skin).

League Of Legends (8 July to 10 Aug 2021)

An in-client story experience, “Rise of the Sentinels”, gives players a way to experience League’s story through the eyes of a rookie member of the Sentinels as lasting change comes to the world of Runeterra. 

  • Players will travel across Runeterra to recruit new allies and battle against Viego. 
  • Rise of the Sentinels releases in weekly chapters and players complete in-game missions to progress through it.
  • Rise of the Sentinels is free to play, so players can fully experience the story without having to pay.

11 new, in-canon skins showcase champions as they appear in Rise of the Sentinels:

  • 8 July 2021: 
    • Sentinel Vayne (Legendary), Sentinel Olaf, Sentinel Irelia, Sentinel Riven, and Sentinel Diana.
    • Ruined Pantheon.
  • 22 July 2021:
    • Sentinel Graves (Legendary), Sentinel Pyke, and Sentinel Rengar.
    • Ruined Miss Fortune.
  • 29 July 2021:
    • Unbound Thresh (Event shop exclusive for initial launch).

An event-exclusive Ascended Pantheon Prestige Edition skin depicts an alternate timeline where the human spirit inside Pantheon overcomes Ruination.

Ultimate Spellbook, League’s first new event game mode since 2018, releases during Sentinels of Light! Each player gains a second champion’s Ultimate ability to use throughout the game in addition to their own.

League of Legends: Wild Rift (8 July to 10 Aug 2021)

Sentinels of Light is Wild Rift’s most ambitious event so far, featuring an in-game narrative experience where players can meet and bond with our heroes: Lucian, Senna, Riven, Irelia, Vayne, and Akshan.

  • Starting with Lucian and Senna, new characters will join the HQ experience over the course of the event (Vayne – 13 July 2021; Riven and Irelia – 19 July 2021; Akshan – 27 July 2021)
  • By playing matches, players will increase their Sentinel Bonds, learning more about each champ’s backstory and motivations to join the cause.
  • The stronger the Bonds players forge, the higher their overall Sentinel HQ level becomes. Strengthening Bonds and increasing the HQ level award themed items: featuring baubles, spawn tags, and one of the 6 featured champs for free.

Throughout the Wild Rift ecosystem, players can learn more and get involved in the overall story:

  • Sentinels of Light: Steadfast Heart, a series of comics featuring the Sentinels of Light joining forces to fight against the Ruined King and the Black Mist, will be released throughout the event, available to read every week in the Wild Rift app or on universe.leagueoflegends.com.
  • A unique AR experience invites players to explore a Sentinel Outpost and take the Oath of Light to become Sentinels themselves, available online now.
  • More surprises await amid the Black Mist…

A host of new in-game canon content will be released throughout July and August:

  • 8 July 2021: 
    • Lucian, Senna
  • 27 July 2021:
    • Akshan
    • New skins: Sentinel Irelia, Sentinel Riven, Sentinel Vayne, Ruined Draven, Ruined Miss Fortune, Ruined Shyvana

    • Wild Rift’s event reaches its thrilling conclusion. No spoilers!

Legends of Runeterra (14 July to 10 Aug 2021)

    • LoR’s second Champion Expansion:
      • In the vein of the Aphelios Champion Expansion released in February, a mini expansion featuring Viego & Akshan, along with 21 other new collectible cards featuring followers, spells, and landmarks focused around the Ruination and the Sentinels of Light.
  • “Declare Your Allegiance” Event Pass:
      • Players will choose between either the Ruined or Sentinels Event Pass, earning thematic rewards for their side based on who they ally with.
        • Players can’t switch sides once they’ve made a choice, but after collecting all of their side’s rewards, players will then start to collect rewards from the opposing side (with the exception of a few exclusive items).
      • A non-canon metagame event will also track how much support each side has. At the end of the Sentinels of Light event, all participating players will receive an in-game reward based on the winning side (regardless of which one they allied with).
  • New personalization items:
