On February 2nd, League of Legends released a cinematic announcing the event’s release just ahead of the Chinese Lunar New Year which is officially on February 12 this year. The video is set in a futuristic cyberpunk-meets-oriental 2057, where a special team is chosen every year to defend the town from a ‘lunar beast’ that comes to wreak havoc on the celebration.
This year, the team which will flaunt Lunar New Year skins is composed of Darius, Jarvan IV, Annie, Alistar and Fiora. League of Legends will also have a special skin for the newest champion, Viego, as well as Aphelios.
Wild Rift also released their very own Lunar Beast event trailer the following day on February 3. With the same setting, the Wild Rift differs with the showcase of a Wild Rift-exclusive Miss Fortune skin. After the conclusion of the Yordle Expedition event, Lunar Beast will be running from February 4 to March 3.
Players will have the opportunity to choose a relic to power up. And as they complete missions and earn tokens, they will be able to spend them on items in the event shop. Receive exclusives when you empower all relics.
Wild Rift also noted a Lunar Lovers event towards the end of Lunar Beast, which will feature duo Xayah and Rakan. Will you participate in the Lunar Beast Event?
