League of Legends Wild Rift will soon be heading into its Patch 2.3 update, its first big version update since releasing in the Americas, which many players are excited for.

The last small patch, Patch 2.2c, brought a number of balance changes as well as the new champion Renekton to the game. There were also new skins released, and the announcement of the 2021 Pride event spanning all of Riot Games' titles. This patch will be lasting about a week longer than usual, in preparation for Patch 2.3 coming soon.

In the Wild Rift Patch Schedule posted in January, Riot provided an overview of the expected release dates of Patches 2.1-2.6. Patch 2.3 is slated to release on June 1, 2021.

Riot stated that the Patch Schedule is not set in stone, and unexpected occurrences may cause the plan to change, but that they'll make an announcement if that is the case. So far, there's no reason to believe the date would be delayed in any way.

There are plenty of things players can look forward to in Patch 2.3. The first is the addition of new champions, and a list of upcoming champions to be added throughout the patch. Patch 2.2 added Galio, Rammus, Rengar, Kha'zix, and Renekton to the game. When it comes to Patch 2.3, Riot has already announced the arrival of Irelia in a recent tweet, which means a collection of new Ionian champions is likely.

Patch 2.3 will also likely see the return of ARAM, a much-loved mode that had recently ended its first testing phase. In a recent /dev blog post, Riot announced that ARAM will be returning in early June for another four-week run, so players can look out for that as well.
