It looks like Riot chose to go as early into February as they could and update the game tomorrow ( February 1st ) starting at 1:00 am PST. RiotRara estimates the downtime will last six hours, at which point you will be able to enjoy all the yordlexplosions you want. Be sure to keep an eye on the Service Status forum's post for the most accurate information as the patching process is underway.

Ninja Edit: Not sure what exactly is going on, it looks like New Page link to the notes was taken down, but the forum post with the notes remains up. Maybe it's just a hiccup?
Edit 2: In addition to granting vision, Ez, Ashe, and Ziggs ults are now visible on the mini map with little icons for the whole team to see. Neato! Thanks reddit!
