Release AnnouncementFrom the official release announcement - A blood moon is rising:
"BLOOD IN THE HEAVENS. BLOOD ON THE EARTH.
To the Cult of the Blood Moon, the sign is clear. The heavens call for brutal sacrifice, and the cultists will take the night to slaughter anyone foolish enough to be caught beneath the looming orb.
GAME MODE: THE HUNT OF THE BLOOD MOON
Available from 2/10/17 - 2/14/17 and 2/17/17 - 2/21/17
Slayers stalk the night, hunting demons, spirits, and each other to appease the blood moon in this murderous 5-on-5 mode.
ITEMS & CHAMPS
The blood moon's curse has removed all defensive items from the shop, and only 20 of the most vicious champions are available for the Hunt (10 of which will be lurking in the free champ rotation).
DEMONS & SPIRITS
Demons and Spirits rule the night. The Demon Herald takes the places of the Rift Herald and the Dragon, and Spirits wander the ominous Rift. Performing a killing spree (counting champions or spirits) grants you the Demon Brand, turning you invisible to hunt down your enemies.
OBJECTIVES & WINNING
Each team earns points by killing the Demon Herald, roaming Spirits, and other players. The first team to 350 points wins the game.
BLOOD MOON JHIN
The Blood Calligrapher’s masterpieces are as beautiful as they are horrific. For him, each victim represents a new inkwell, and his canvas will be as broad as that ink will allow. The sanguine marks on the ground signify the Cult’s power and deepen the artist’s connection to the spirit world.
BLOOD MOON DIANA
The moon shines most vividly as the Blood Priestess approaches. Scarlet rays from the night sky beam down on her victims, and the lunar assassin is never far behind. Her ritual slaughter is done swiftly, her arcing blade glinting in the dark moonlight.
BLOOD MOON TWISTED FATE
Few agree on the true nature of the Trickster Demon, who deals death from his deck of afflictions. Whether he is a demon from the spirit world or a mortal in a mask, quiet whispers spread conflicting rumors of his whereabouts. The truth belongs only to him—and the spirits trapped in his cards.
BLOOD MOON TALON
As precise as he is patient, the Blade Demon is thought to be the result of a broken symmetry between the blood moon and the earth, sent down from the deathly sky itself to collect its due. Silhouetted against the crimson moon, he descends on his victims from the canopy above.

Hunt of the Blood Moon
While some information is repeated from above, here's a bit more on Hunt of the Blood Moon from the OCE post:
"Hunt of the Blood Moon is our take on the classic Assassin Power Fantasy. Two teams of Assassins compete, sacrificing the opposition in an attempt to secure the Blood Moon’s blessing and briefly gain the power of a demon. The team most successful in gaining said favour wins!
Map: Summoner’s Rift
Mode Type: Blind Pick with Champion Restrictions.
- First team to obtain 350 points wins.
- Earn points in 3 ways: Sacrificing Enemy Champions, Enemy Spirits, and Demon Heralds.
- Spirits of the Blood Moon will passively filter into both teams jungles. Hunt down the enemy team’s spirits and sacrifice them for 3 pointts.
- Demon Heralds will periodically spawn in both Baron and Dragon pit. Sacrifice these suckers for a total of 30 points.
- If you are able to defeat 3 enemies without returning to base (read: “Wussing out”) or dying you’ll briefly gain the power of a demon, turning invisible and running very (very) fast for the duration.
- The demon brand will break when you deal damage (or after 45 seconds), instantly doing 20% of the first target’s maximum health in true damage.
Other Gameplay Notes
- Minimap indicators in both teams’ jungles will light up to indicate the number of spirits in that half of the jungle.
- A maximum of 8 will spawn at a time, so hunt them down aggressively!
- Gold and Experience are flatlined, and Respawn Timers are reduced across the board.
- Lane minion spawns have been disabled, and turrets are invulnerable.
- At the start of the game, outer turrets are removed. 6 minutes in, the second row will collapse as well, giving you a bit more space to play around in.
- We’ve removed a… not insignificant… number of items from the shop (Basically, if it’s mostly defensive, you probably can’t buy it)
Restricted Champ Pool
For the first time in a game mode, we’re going to be using a limited pool of champions. We’ll be restricting you to a pool of 20 Assassins and Aggressive Divers;
- Lee Sin
In celebration of the blood moon event, we’ve added 10 of these champions to the Free to Play rotation for all players."
During the match player's passively have the BLOOD PACT buff:
These champions are f2p during the week of February 10th while the first weekend of Hunt of the Blood Moon is active,
