Legends of Runeterra‘s Worldwalker expansion is now live. The expansion introduces four new champions, new keywords on cards, over 65 new cards, and The Path of Champions 2.0.
The flagship feature of Worldwalker is The Path of Champions 2.0, expanding the PvE mode that was originally released back in November. The Path of Champions 2.0 introduces new regions, including Noxus, Demacia, Piltover, Zaun, Ionia, and Bilgewater.
The Path of Champions 2.0 now also features permanent progression systems, including Legend Levels that power up a player’s entire champion roster, Champion Star Levels, which grant champions unique abilities and unlock new parts of their personal adventures, and revamped Champion Levels.
Worldwalker‘s new champions are Jhin, Annie, Bard, and Illaoi. Jhin is the game’s first Runeterran champion. Annie will be bringing her stuffed bear Tibbers along with her to Legends of Runeterra. Bard, the second Runeterran champion, uses musical allies to buff other cards. Illaoi is able to summon tentacles to smash the opponent’s Nexus.
The new keywords coming to Legends of Runeterra with Worldwalker are Spawn, and Boons. Cards with Spawn can grow tentacles to increase their power. Boons are essentially a new take on traps, but the press release essentially describes Boons as positive effects. Boons can be attached to cards in a deck, activating them when drawn.
Along with Worldwalker, Legends of Runeterra is also kicking off its Pulefire event, which comes with new high-tech emotes, guardians, and card backs, culminating in an exclusive Pulsefire Akshan skin.
