League of Legends” today shared the planning of the new season 2023, introducing information about the heroes, backstory, and mode.
Fist said it will increase the frequency of updates to older heroes and game modes, so it may slow down the release of new heroes. It is also trying to speed up the Art and Sustainability Update (ASU), which is currently underway for Li Qing and Timo.
In terms of game modes, Fist says it is fully engaged in the development of new modes and needs to suspend support for existing rotation modes (Infinite Firepower, Infinite Chaos, Ultimate Magic Code, Clone Battle). In other words, there will be no other rotation modes until the new mode goes live in the summer. These modes will also return as soon as the 2v2v2v2 mode goes live later this year.
The 2v2v2v2 mode features four two-person teams, each picking their heroes and then going two-by-two against other teams through several rounds of competition. During the matchups, the heroes gradually increase in strength, gaining equipment, levels and a special ability called Hero Enhancement between rounds. After losing a certain number of rounds, the team is eliminated so you can immediately start lining up again.
Finally, Fist says it will update some of the old original artwork, starting with Lone Ranger Galen.
