League of Legends‘ new PROJECT skins have finally been initiated, bringing with them a tense trailer full of new animations, futuristic deception, and possibly a teaser for an upcoming champion.
PROJECT has been one of the more mysterious League of Legends promotions, beginning with a teaser website that has now evolved into a database centered around Master Yi’s painful and fragmented memories. The PROJECT: OVERDRIVE trailer deepens the intrigue, with the help of some cyborg tech and a 3v1 battle against Zed on a platform plummeting from a skyscraper. Just normal Zed things.
Glimpses into Yi’s past shed a new light on the Wuju master’s history. His Ionian home was once ruthlessly destroyed by a Noxian invasion, and his traumatic visions of a large enemy may just mean a new Noxian champion on the way. Though the dual swords resemble Shen or Olaf, the former’s ninja stature and the latter’s use of axes seems to suggest a new character altogether.
