Summer’s officially here, League of Legends fans. To beat the heat, Riot Games is preparing to drop five new skins from the game’s summer-themed skin line, Pool Party, following the release of Patch 10.13.

Heimerdinger, Syndra, Jarvan IV, Taliyah, and Orianna are all getting new beach attire when the skins go live on July 2. Each of the skins will become available in the client store for 1,350 RP and will release with their own set of chromas for additional purchase.

Pool Party Taliyah will be the Stoneweaver’s first skin since her release in 2016—excluding her Samsung Galaxy skin, which was chosen by Lee “Crown” Min-ho in honor of his team’s World Championship victory in 2017. For her new look, Taliyah wears a two-piece wet suit and travels around the Rift on a surfboard in place of her usual rock.

Both Syndra and Orianna don one-piece swimsuits and beach props in place of their usual Summoner’s Rift attire. Syndra circles herself with purple volleyballs while Orianna’s Orb has been replaced by a blow-up whale floatie.

Heimerdinger and Jarvan IV sport orange arm floaties, swim trunks, and sandals. The Revered Inventor throws out beach balls for his stun and builds a sandcastle before returning to base, while Jarvan IV attacks with a beach umbrella and summons a castle wall of sand for his ultimate.

Patch 10.13 drops early tomorrow morning, but the new batch of Pool Party skins won’t become available until Thursday.

Riot Games has revealed another set of skins headed to the League of Legends PBE that will fire up some fans in the coming weeks. Karthus, Vel’Koz, and Kennen are all joining the Infernal skin line soon.

The Infernal skin line is home to some of the oldest cosmetics in the game, reaching back to 2010 with the addition of Infernal Mordekaiser. Since then, however, over 19 other champions have joined the skin line’s fiery ranks.

These new skins are all visually impressive—as most new League skins are these days. Karthus, for example, summons a firestorm around himself with his Defile ability and raises a wall of fire for his W. Kennen has a similar firestorm effect during his ultimate. He also sets himself ablaze during his Lightning Rush ability.

The best skin of the bunch, however, has to be Vel’Koz. His tentacles have been replaced with red-hot chains. He splits open the ground with his Void Rift and becomes a deadly geyser of molten flame when he uses his ultimate.

These skins were all officially revealed alongside the game’s upcoming Conqueror Nautilus skin, which is a cosmetic to help celebrate the 2020 Spring Split champions of the world. A Conqueror skin is supposed to be released each year for the Mid-Season Invitational, but the tournament was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can try out all of these new skins when they hit the PBE.
