The a work-in-progress version of the Summoner's Rift update is now on the PBE for testing! To access the map on the PBE, you will need to either join a BLIND PICK SUMMONER'S RIFT queue or create a custom game and select "SUMMONER'S RIFT ( UPDATE ) " as your map. These are the only two ways to get on the map at this stage of testing.

Map Tour

First up is an OK tour of the updated map featuring a quick drive by of each lane and camp.

Map Comparison

Here's a comparison video with a comprehensive look at the differences between the current and updated Summoner's Rift!


Jungle Camps

All of the neutral jungle camps have been converted into new creatures more fitting for the Rift. Each camp has a new spawn animation, reacts to players approaching it, and more!

Double Golems -> Ancient Krug + Krug

Ancient Golem -> Blue Sentinel  + Sentry

Lizard Elder -> Red Brambleback + Cinderling

Wraiths -> Crimson Razorbeak + Razorbeak

Wight -> Gromp

Wolves -> Greater Murk Wolf + Murk Wolf

Epic Monsters

Baron and Dragon remain the same namewise but have had makeovers and have new abilities ( which trigger after every three basic attacks ) .





Each side now has a unique shopkeeper. They will both have oodles of unique VO lines but those were not included in this initial build.
Blue Side
Red Side


Both red and blue side minions now have distinct appearances.

While normally model viewer shots are pretty gross, this is a good way to demonstrate the differences between the red and blue minions.
