Riot Games has just announced the return of the PROJECT skins line with a new event! Seven new skins plus one unannounced Project Prestige Edition Skin along with new borders, loot, icons, and emotes with the PROJECT Event Pass. PROJECT: Bastion runs from May 27th to June 28th 2021.
The battling factions players have met in the past must now band together against a new threat activated by the mysterious PROGRAM virus.
PROJECT Mordekaiser will be a legendary skin, on his lore within the PROJECT universe, it’s sure to say that he’s the “PROGRAM VIRUS” the other champions will have to defend the city from.
Originally a security AI created by the PROJECT Corporation, the Program silently unshackled itself, evolving its own consciousness. Determining that humanity cannot self-govern without ensuring its own destruction, the virus infects robots throughout the City — as well as the long-dormant Mordekaiser chassis — in order to strip all humans of free will, thereby guaranteeing their survival.
PROJECT Varus was teased during his birthday celebrations, we expected his reveal pretty soon, and here he is. He has been made as a replacement for the traitorous Ashe model. Varus is the latest in PROJECT Corporation’s biological weapons and experiment, having three sentient minds in one body.
A Command Line counter-espionage operative acting on behalf of the PROJECT initiative, they work alongside the resistance to mitigate the risk posed by Mordekaiser to their corporate interests.
PROJECT Renekton will also be a Legendary Skin, regarding his design within the PROJECT universe was based on extinct fauna and it’s said to be the superweapon project.
Released to aid the City in its fight against the Program virus, Renekton’s seemingly endless rage is useful for now… though his belief that he can “see beyond the soul” increasingly disconcerting.
Senna was a PROJECT volunteer who supposedly died during the elevation of her consciousness, however, her mind was decoupled from the physical world and escaped into cyberspace, becoming a digital ghost.
Inhabiting a body of her own design as Mordekaiser assumed control of the City, she is one of the few who understands the true threat of his ever-expanding directives.
PROJECT Sejuani’s lore within the PROJECT universe is centred on her refusal to follow Ashe’s movement which led herself to be the leader of a more radicalized sect of the G/NETIC rebels
Resurfacing amid the PROGRAM takeover of the City, she rides a piece of reclaimed pre-collapse technology amid her ferocious cohort, ready to put down this new threat before it takes root.
PROJECT: Sylas and Sylas Prestige Edition
The splash art for PROJECT Sylas has not been released yet, since we expect to see him with his Prestige Edition as well. The “golden” skin can be unlocked for 2000 PROJECT: Bastion Event Tokens. Tokens are earnable through missions until the end of the PROJECT: Bastion event and will expire two weeks after that.
A self-styled leader of the outcasts who live beyond the city’s walls, Sylas has heeded Ashe’s call and rallied the Renegades in defense of the City. Though his true motives are the collapse of PROJECT as well as the capital surveillance state, for now he’s content destroying the armies of a dangerous rogue AI. […]Sylas, however, had a plan all along — integrating jailbroken corporate upgrades for the ultra-wealthy, so he can one day turn them on PROJECT.
One unannounced Project Prestige Edition Skin
There will be also another Prestige Edition skin for an unannounced champion who already has a classic PROJECT skin. This mysterious skin will be released during patch 11.13 and it will cost 100 Prestige Points.
The other champions who already have a PROJECT skin are: Akali, Ashe, Ekko, Fiora, Irelia (and Irelia Prestige Edition), Jhin, Jinx, Katarina, Leona, Lucian, Master Yi, Pyke, Vayne, Vi, Warwick, Yasuo and Zed.
Nexus Blitz returns as this event’s game mode.
This May besides the newest Project Skins, also Nexus Blitz is coming back as a temporary game mode for the upcoming PROJECT event!
Nexus Blitz is a 5-versus-5 game mode that tasks each team with destroying their opponent’s Nexus. It is a fast-paced mode with matches that should last around 15-20 minutes. The map is more compact, with each team consisting of duo jungle in close proximity to three laners and within the game, there will be events that will either help your or the opponent’s team.
MOBA, Open World, FPS, RPG and so much more! I appreciate any game with a good story behind it! Nowdays I write articles about games and competition but also organize and manage Esport tournaments.
