The Ruined King has lurked upon League of Legends' Summoner Rift last night.

it has been a day since Patch 11.12 of League of Legends came out. Aphelios mains are logging into the game, and Udyr players are in pain. On the backside, PBE has already been actively making changes including the Tahm Kench rework.

A new patch for PBE 11.13 was updated June 9. This is another patch after the Tahm Kench patch that happened on the day before. This update included balance changes, chromas for the new Astronaut skins, and more.

The biggest change is a new look for Summoner's Rift. What has happened? It has literally become "ruined."

Ruined King League of Legends: Everything You Need to Know

It has been a while since we have been given a map skin in League of Legends. We are finally getting a new one themed as the Ruined King. Below we can get a full view at the new look of the Summoner's Rift.

New visual updates including baron. dragon and more have been made, and new background music will be coming too. The full list of close-up images can be found at the PBE website, Surrender at 20, and here are just a few for you to take a look at.

The visuals show a dark grey and green theme, as it reminds us Shadow Isles champions such as Threash, Mordekaiser, and of course, Viego.

If you like the original look of the Summoner's Rift, there is always a check box in Settings where you can take it off. Do not worry that you will be forced to use this map theme during 11.13.

According to the patch schedule released by Riot Games, 11.13 will be coming out June 23.
