Winter Summoner's Rift hits the PBE![NOTE: Map is currently ENABLED in Normal Blind, Draft, and One for All game modes on PBE! This map will not go live in 6.24]
The cool new Winter Summoner's Rift map is now enabled for PBE testing, packed full of poros, snow, Baron Santa hats, and more!
Riot Aeon with more information:
"Heya guys, coming soon we're going to be enabling the winter version of Summoner's Rift on PBE for testing.
When developing the map we wanted to deliver the mood and atmosphere of Summoner's Rift during the winter holidays, while maintaining as much gameplay clarity as possible.
We added snow, ice, and holiday cheer.
Even some fluffy friends from the Freljord have vacationed over for a visit.
We even updated a bunch of in-game abilities to have clearer visual effects so that you can still see them in the cold of winter.
We'll be keeping an eye on this thread, so please report any bugs you find here.
Here's a gallery of Winter Summoner's Rift screenshots:
[video coming soon!]
Look for more on this chilly version of Summoner's Rift as we near Snowdown & the winter holidays!
- Warring Kingdoms Katarina's R vfx have been tweaked, including size/opacity of new R decal added earlier in the cycle.
