The new trailer released today features Jinx, and explores her backstory with fellow champion and sister Vi, hinting at a deeper trauma between the pair.

According to the developers, the show is set to focus on the two cities featured prominently in League of Legends, the advanced and prosperous Piltover, and the desolate and despairing Zaun, and the conflicts between these two cities and their inhabitants.
