May and June will bring two more expansions that are similar to Shurima themes. In May we will see Guardians of the Ancient, along with some new skins and a themed event. Then, in June, Shurima moves a little more into the limelight with Rise of the Underworlds. July will bring another Champion Expansion and themed event, along with “More to Come”. We’ll likely hear more about July and the rest of 2021 as we get closer to that date.
Legends of Runeterra is updated regularly, with balance patches and tweaks running alongside the major expansions and additions. For example, following feedback from the game’s beta, the team adjusted the timing of the animations and made things run a little faster.
