League of Legends Patch 12.13 official release date has been announced.

League of Legends Patch 12.12 has been out since June 22, and has brought several adjustments to the game, including many aimed at fixing problems caused by the durability update from a few patches ago. Now as Patch 12.13 approaches, players are going to want to know its official release date.

League of Legends Patch 12.13 Release Date

According to League designer Matt Leung-Harrison (or @RiotPhroxzon on Twitter), Patch 12.13 is expected to come out around July 12, 2022. The patch will be following a micropatch for 12.12 coming on June 30, which seeks to nerf a lot of the Champions who were adjusted during the release of Patch 12.12, such as Seraphine and Yuumi, alongside other strong Champions like Zeri and Bel'Veth.

While most details are still unavailable, the announcement Tweet shows several burst Champions getting buffs. As of now, the only Champions getting nerfed in Patch 12.13 (besides the ones getting nerfed in the micropatch) are Corki and Volibear. The Tweet also shows very few System changes, making it a much smaller patch than the changes made previously during Patches 12.10, 12.11, and 12.12.

Another Tweet by @RiotPhroxzon further details the buffs and nerfs coming in Patch 12.12b and Patch 12.13, including all the specific numbers for each Champions' changes. The Patch is still a few weeks away, meaning more changes could be added or removed before the Patch. More information will likely be released as an official Riot Games blog post closer to July 12.
