Special PROJECT Loading Screens

Similar to the exclusive FIRST STRIKE loading screens for the 2015 PROJECT skins, new special edition loading screens for PROJECT: Ashe, Ekko, and Katarina have been added in today's update - the raw assets with an open space for other loading screen bits are shown below, remember the loading screen includes several decorations!


A special loadscreen in this style has also been added for PROJECT: Yasuo, who did not have one as he was released solo prior to 2015's PROJECT skins. Again, no availability details.

Small changes have been made to the PROJECT: Yi, Fiora, Leona, Lucian, & Zed first strike borders to match the designs above - corners in/changed, slightly smaller, etc

Skin Updates

PROJECT: Katarina has a few VFX related changes in today's update - making her Q and W easier to see.

Riot Aotus on PROJECT: Katarina -
"We've heard your concerns about the spell effects on Kat's Q and W. We will be making them louder to help them read better in game. When Kat get's a speed burst from W, she now has a trail to indicate the buff. Let us know what you think!"

PROJECT: Katarina's Q mark and W now have a darker effect on the ground which makes  them stand out more!

PROJECT: Katarina's W's movespeed bonus also now has a unique visual! 
Here's a short video of the Q and W changes from today's update:
