Riot Games announced Bel'Veth as the newest champion coming to League of Legends through a series of vignettes and a Champion Premiere in collaboration with DIGIC Pictures.

Bel'Veth has been rumored to be the next champion following the release of Renata Glasc. The Champion Cinematic is centered around Void lore featuring Kai'Sa facing off against Bel'Veth. "I am not some mindless Void spawn. I am so much more. I am end of your world and the beginning of mine," Bel'Veth says in a haunting tone.

There are other vignettes around Void champions Malzahar and Vel'Koz. In a message to Malzahar, Bel'Veth says, "My prophet, your empress has arrived."

Not much else has been confirmed regarding Bel'Veth, but leaks suggest she'll be a jungler akin to something like Rek'Sai. As Riot Games confirms Bel'Veth's abilities, fans of the game will start to theorize where she'll best fit and what champions will pair best with her and counter her in-game. Champion popularity inherently spikes when a new one is released, so expect to see her a ton on the Rift after release.

Plus, Patch 12.10 will introduce the Durability Update so she might be a mainstay early on based on her kit and build path.
