League of Legends: Wild Rift Patch 5.0 Is Out!

League of Legends: Wild Rift, the 5v5 MOBA title by Riot Games is dropping update 5.0 and the patch for the same is out. Three new champions are making their debut, while some old ones are getting a massive makeover. Also, there are new game modes and a bunch of skins to look out for. Follow along as we list out the details!

What’s New?

Syndra, Talon, and Kindred are the new champions. Syndra, the Dark Sovereign, is all about long-range combat with her dark spheres. Talon, the agile assassin, has speedy attacks and stealth moves. Kindred comes with dual abilities Lamb and Wolf, bringing quick movements with basic attacks and unique abilities to the gameplay.

Among the existing ones, Aurelion Sol, the Star Forger, is getting a major upgrade with new skills and a killer passive that turns him into the Star Destroyer.  Gragas, Yuumi and Wukong are also getting minor upgrades.

Get ready for some major gameplay changes (or upgrades) as well. First up is the addition of an Alcove to the top lane, aiming to reduce the isolation top-laners from the rest of the map. The popular ARAM mode’s Heart Steel item can now be found in the Rift. Also, there’s a bump in the Health Pool with items like Titanic Hydra and Spear of Shojin.

Rift Herald is changing its route and heading straight for the enemy turret, simplifying things on the mini-map. Two new game modes Arena and Double Cast are set to enhance your experience. Arena has 20 New Year’s Dragons-themed augments, NPC opponents and AI hosts. Double Cast, a hybrid mode, lets your auto-attacks be counted as a double hit in subsequent attacks.
