RUMOR: League of Legends Next Champ to be African American?


Over the past few days, some concept art has surfaced for a new champion for Riot Games’ League of Legends.

However, what’s significant about this champion is that it might be League’s first true “African American” (equivalent in League Lore) champion. Often, Riot gets a few nudges and elbows because it hasn’t really implemented the African American race at all, but supports a variety of Asian, Caucasian, and Islander, type of races. Although he is currently un-named, there are a couple threads on general discussion giving speculation to what it might be (amusingly).

This “Gun Templar” seems to be a very interesting concept, and it looks like we’ll have to wait to see where his alliances align!
