Odyssey: Extraction

Here's Bilby with a primer on the Odyssey: Extraction PvE gamemode:
Remote alien worlds can be difficult to navigate. Use this friendly guide to get all the details on Odyssey: Extraction before you go in.

Characters 
Pick from Yasuo, Jinx, Sona, Malphite, and Ziggs. Each has different augment paths and strengthened passive abilities. 
Augments
This is the best part. 
Each time you play the mode, you can earn augments for the characters. You keep these for the duration of the event and equip them between games. They’re super powerful and let you do crazy stuff.
You unlock extra augment slots as you complete missions over time. You can get up to 5 slots and 15 augments per character. There are some crazy builds, so experiment with the augments you find. 
*There will be a “catch-up” augment bundle available from September 17 – October 8. The bundle will include ALL augments for either 600 RP or 10,000 BE, but each augment owned will reduce the RP price by 8, down to a minimum price of 215 RP. 
Summoner Spells 
Only choice here is which key you’re putting them on. Here’s what you get to work with: 
Keep your arms and legs inside the wormhole.

Wake up, dummy!
Friendlies 
Little buddies. 
Powerups and Collectibles 
This is the stuff you want to see. 
Hazards 
This planet isn’t the most stable thing in the universe. Here’s what can go wrong on the surface:
Enemies
You didn’t come here to just walk around. Here’s who you’re up against. 
Aaaaand that’s it! For more information on the event itself (including all the missions and earnable rewards for playing this mode), head to our Learn More article. Good luck out there, space ace!"

Odyssey Kayn Short Story - The Lure

A new short story set in the Odyssey universe is also featured on the Odyssey hub - The Lure:
Keelo always cried “Surprise!” when he attacked. 
Kayn supposed it was the equivalent of Keelo pulling his punches out of respect, or perhaps some artifact of his ancient, preset protocols. 
The warning cry was never necessary, nor was it especially amusing after all this time. 
And a three-quarter ton fightmek shouting “Surprise!” as it swung a hook-handled titanium halberd with a fifty centimeter blade edge at your head was still a three-quarter ton fightmek swinging a hook-handled titanium halberd with a fifty centimeter blade edge at your head. 
“Not now,” Kayn sighed."

Odyssey Merch 

With the Odyssey event comes tons of new merch! Check out the Riot Games merch store  Odyssey Hub for a look at everything new!
"The pilot of the Morning Star is your guide to the galaxy as a Special Edition Series 3 figure. She may be a bit eccentric...but only slightly. Don't worry - we peg her not crashing the ship at a solid 20%."
"Good job, recruit. You've unlocked the Limited Edition Morning Star Crew Jacket for purchase online until 10/08/18!

Of course..you have to rep your crew as well. You will find a commemorative patch of your new home - the Morning Star on one sleeve and the official Odyssey emblem on the front."
