After a break for the holidays, League of Legends is back on track with Season 12.
The first batch of skins for the new year have already landed on the PBE, and Riot is kicking right into high gear, releasing 15 new skins with several designed to celebrate the New Lunar Year (Chinese New Year).
These 15 skins will be divided into new additions for three series. First, Firecracker and Porcelain skins will celebrate the Lunar Year. Then Crystal Rose/Withered Rose skins will celebrate an annual festival in Runeterra.
Here are the new skins coming to League of Legends soon, skins that may just make the cut for LoL patch 12.2.
Firecrackers and Porcelain skins are most likely to be part of the League of Legends 12.2 patch, which will go live on Wednesday, January 19th.
League of Legends servers will go down for maintenance for LoL 12.2 around 6 am EST, with release time expected around 9 am EST.
New Lunar Year Celebration
The Chinese New Year or Lunar Year celebration is a big deal in video games.
Nowadays, the world is familiar with some of these traditions. Firecrackers and Porcelain Skin Series are dedicated to honoring these days and bringing the celebration onto Summoner’s Rift in League of Legends.
