Champion Skins

Six new skins hit the PBE this cycle:

PROJECT: Pyke

1820 RP
"An early PROJECT prototype, Pyke's untested upgrades left him violently unstable—too much so for his handlers, who junked him and threw his remains outside the walls of the City. Yet his cybernetic brain survived, rebuilding Pyke with salvaged scrap parts from all around him, and now their fragmented, overlapping memories mix with his own as they scream out for revenge."


Here's Riot 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread on PROJECT: Pyke:
A broken prototype left to die, Pyke is a tortured soul created by the PROJECT Corporation. Fueled by revenge, he’ll stop at nothing to destroy the company that created him.

Project Pyke is ready to execute his enemies on PBE. He has:

New model and textures - Featuring a mesmerizing new take on Pyke!
New ability VFX - Hard light weapons and abilities.
New SFX - A cybernetic edge to his kit.
New VO- Get a glimpse into the mind of a man driven by revenge.
New recall animation - Summon your cybernetic serpent and port home.
New emotes- Featuring snakes! Lots of snakes!

Project Pyke is now leading the rebellion on PBE! Report back here with any bugs, feedback or questions that you have.

Project Pyke is currently set at 1820 RP (subject to change).

PROJECT: Warwick

1350 RP
 "Plucked from the wastelands by a PROJECT research cell, Warwick has been irrevocably transformed into a horrifying new stage of transhuman evolution⁠—a weaponized monster stripped of all remorse, and programmed solely for violent suppression. Through the meddling of the ragtag outsiders, he escaped before being completed, and now rampages indiscriminately across the City."



Here's Riot 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread on PROJECT: Warwick:
A living weapon created by the PROJECT Corporation, the man once known as Warwick is no more. Driven mad and violent beyond reason, Warwick has escaped and is on the rampage. Afraid? You should be! We know what hunts you!

Project Warwick has been set loose in PBE. He has:

New model and textures - Featuring Warwick’s horrifying new stage of evolution!
New VFX - Futuristic VFX showcasing Warwicks ferocity.
New SFX - The sounds of cybernetic hacking and slashing.

New recall animation - Port home and get a glimpse of the man behind the beast!
Project Warwick is now on the hunt on PBE. Report back here with any bugs that occur or feedback that you have. If you’ve got any questions, post ‘em here as well!

Project Warwick is currently set at 1350 RP (subject to change).

PROJECT: Jinx

1350 RP
 "Jinx volunteered for PROJECT conversion, never expecting that a critical power failure would scramble her memory core, leaving her a psychopath driven by the manic voices in her head. Seemingly obsessed with destruction for its own sake, she has begun to show signs of something far more sinister than mere memory fragmentation: the cold, calculating influence of Program."


Here's Riot 6armedrobot with a bugs & feedback thread on PROJECT: Jinx:
A volunteer for PROJECT conversion, Jinx has been upgraded! Unfortunately, an accident during the process has left her totally psychotic. Driven by the voices in her head and her obsession for mass destruction, she’s joined Pyke in his quest to take down the PROJECT Corporation. Things are gonna get blown up!

PROJECT: Jinx is on the rampage in PBE. She has:

New model and textures - Featuring the best guns and hair on the Rift!
New VFX - New VFX! So many purple polygons!
New SFX - Fishbones and Pow-Pow have never sounded so futuristic.
New recall animation - Have a little fun and destroy some drones before porting home!

PROJECT: Jinx is now sowing chaos on PBE. Report back here with any bugs that occur or feedback that you have. If you’ve got any questions, post ‘em here as well!

PROJECT: Jinx is currently set at 1350 RP (subject to change).

PROJECT: Akali

1350 RP
"A cutting-edge PROJECT subject who somehow escaped the City's boundaries, Akali brings dire warnings of an untested superweapon to those living in the wasteland beyond. With time running out and no other options, these outcasts join her in an attempt to take the mega-corporation down... suspicious that their newfound ally might in fact be a double agent."


Here's Riot grumbojr with a bugs & feedback thread on PROJECT: Akali:
PROJECT: Akali is joining forces to fight PROJECT. She's armed and ready to deploy. Keep your eyes peeled or you may end up with a kama in your back.

PROJECT: Akali is sneaking her way onto the Rift, featuring:

New model and texture! - Countless upgrades and shiny new tech.
New particles! - See the neon of the city!
New SFX! - You’ll only hear her when she wants you to.
New recall animation! - Hmm, these drones look familiar...

PROJECT: Akali is live on PBE! If you’ve got feedback, we’d love to hear it. Bugs? Send them our way and we’ll take care of them. We’ll do our best to answer your questions!

PROJECT: Akali is set to be 1350 RP.*

PROJECT: Irelia

1350 RP
"A PROJECT castoff who found sanctuary in the lawless wastes, Irelia has led other outcasts like her as they attempt to survive corporate assassins, murderous old-world technology, and widespread ecological collapse. Knowing Warwick could destroy everything she holds dear, she joins the attack on the City to end PROJECT once and for all."


Here's Riot grumbojr with a bugs & feedback thread on PROJECT: Irelia:
PROJECT: Irelia is leading the charge against PROJECT, and is willing to work with the likes of Pyke, Warwick, Jinx, and Akali to bring them down.

PROJECT: Irelia and her blades are dancing their way to the Rift, featuring: 

New model and texture! - Brand new armor and blades for her many battles to come.
New particles! - Pink and yellow effects will be sure to catch your eye.
New SFX! - Hear her blades cut through her enemies!
New recall animation! - Those drones never stood a chance.

PROJECT: Irelia is live on PBE! If you’ve got feedback, we’d love to hear it. Bugs? Send them our way and we’ll take care of them. We’ll do our best to answer your questions!

PROJECT: Irelia is set to be 1350 RP.*
*Prices on PBE are subject to change.

PROJECT: Irelia - Prestige Edition

[Availability TBD]
 "There are moments when Irelia and the other outcasts remember who they once were, before PROJECT exiled them into a wasteland filled with sand-blasted monuments to corporate greed. These memories are fleeting, the last flickering images of a long-compromised humanity."
