Riot is teasing the release of a new card expansion in Legends of Runeterra! Here's everything we know so far from the cards, leaks, release date, and more!
Things will be getting dark in Legends of Runeterra! Less than a month after the release of the last expansion, Forces From Beyond, Riot has already started teasing the next expansion. This will be a tall order to live up to as the last expansion saw the introduction of three champions: Kai'Sa, Evelynn, and Gwen. However, the promotional content has already driven up the anticipation levels as we could be seeing a new champion that looks to tear up the meta.
Additionally, Riot has revealed that:
The new expansion introduces a darker side to the land of Runeterra and includes five new champions, as well as a new card type and over 65 collectible cards!
Here are all the details about the new expansion's release date, how to watch the announcement live stream, and cards leaked from the new expansion!

Many players have brightened the image that Riot posted with the live stream details and it looks like the Shadow Reaper, Kayn, will be one of the new champions joining Legends of Runeterra!
Several cards have been leaked from the new Legends of Runeterra expansion. They appear to confirm Kayn's addition as the new champion in the game. These leaked cards come courtesy of a Reddit post from u/AngelTheTaco. Let's take a look at all of them in detail!
These are the descriptions of all the ten cards mentioned in the picture above (from left to right):

Of course, there can be some doubt over the accuracy of these cards as they are leaks. However, they seem rather accurate!
