Table of Contents


New Champion Skins

Several skins are now on the PBE, including the new mythic essence Ashen Knight Pyke and the Anima Squad skins - Battle Bat Vayne, Battle Bunny Miss Fortune (legendary!), Battle Bunny Prime Riven, Battle Cat Jinx (+ Prestige edition!) and Battle Wolf Sylas:

Ashen Knight Pyke


Battle Bat Vayne

1350 RP
Vayne is Anima Squad's premiere intel expert, infiltrating enemy strongholds to strike first, strike fast, and strike hard. She's willing to do anything it takes to ensure humanity's survival, even if sometimes that means butting heads with the leadership of Commander Fortune.

Here's RiotLavenderKira with a bugs & feedback thread for Battle Bat Vayne:
"Let us hunt those who have fallen to darkness." 
Battle Bat Vayne is heading onto the Rift with: 
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall Animation! 
We are aware of a bug with Vayne's ult VFX in the PBE preview video. It should not occur in game, so please let us know if it does. Please give feedback from your experience playing it on PBE rather than from viewing videos, thank you! 
Battle Bat Vayne is set to be 1350 RP. 
Battle Bat Vayne is available soon on PBE! As players who get a first-hand look at this upcoming content, we want to hear your thoughts. Drop your feedback in the thread below!"

Battle Cat Jinx

1350 RP
Jinx is a one-cat demolitions squad, her natural destructive impulses turned toward more productive ends: fighting off the Primordians. She's not really a soldier, doesn't seem to care about humanity's cause, and doesn't follow orders -- but there's no arguing with Jinx's results.

Here's RiotLavenderKira with a bugs & feedback thread for Battle Cat Jinx:
"I really need a new gun. But don't tell my other guns." 
Battle Cat Jinx is heading onto the Rift with:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New SFX!
  • New recall Animation!
Battle Cat Jinx is set to be 1350 RP. 
Battle Cat Jinx is available soon on PBE! As players who get a first-hand look at this upcoming content, we want to hear your thoughts. Drop your feedback in the thread below!"

 

Battle Cat Jinx Prestige Edition

x RP
Unleashed and brandishing an arsenal of squid-stomping explosives strong enough to knock over a Primordian warship, Jinx has the enemy right in her claws. With this Battle Cat on the prowl? The war is as good as over.

Battle Bunny Miss Fortune 

1820 RP / Legendary
"Sarah Fortune is the second to take on the title of Anima Squad Commander, after her predecessor Riven's mysterious disappearance. They're big leporine shoes to fill, considering Riven's status as a war hero, but Sarah is smart, skilled, and courageous enough to forge her own legend in the fight for humanity."
[Splash is not yet on the PBE, but it has been previewed on social media!]

As a legendary skin, Battle Bunny Miss Fortune has a new voiceover:

Here's RiotLavenderKira with a bugs & feedback thread for Battle Bunny Miss Fortune :
"Suit up, hop out, and cover each other's tails."

Legendary skin, Battle Bunny Miss Fortune, is heading onto the Rift, featuring:
  • New models and textures!
  • New VFX!
  • New VFX overlay that triggers during her ult (R). Please let us know if you see any bugs as it should scale for different screen sizes.
  • New SFX!
  • New animations and recall!
  • New VO!
Battle Bunny Miss Fortune is set to be 1820 RP. 
Battle Bunny Miss Fortune will be available to play soon on PBE. As players who get a first hand look at this upcoming content, we want to hear your thoughts. Drop your feedback in the thread below!"

Battle Bunny Prime Riven

x RP
Riven volunteered for what would eventually become Anima Squad after losing many comrades in the early days of the Primordian invasion. A string of victories later, she is famous: a war hero looked up to by all. ...So why has she suddenly vanished when the world needs her most?

Battle Wolf Sylas

x RP
Sylas is the leader of Wolf Team: a daring, ruthless strike force under the banner of Anima Squad. Though he rejects anyone claiming authority over him (Commander Fortune included), Sylas knows that if humanity falls, there will be nothing left to fight for.

Chromas

In addition to the new skins, several sets of chromas are now on the PBE:

Battle Wolf Sylas
[8 Chromas]

Battle Bat Vayne
[8 Chromas]

Battle Bunny Prime Riven
[8 Chromas]

Battle Cat Jinx
[8 Chromas]

Battle Bunny Miss Fortune
[5 Chromas]
