League of Legends Patch 11.2 is scheduled to release on Jan. 21, 2021. The update appears to add a brand new champion to the lineup, along with a few minor changes to items and other champions.

The newest champion addition to the League of Legends cast is Viego-The Ruined King. Viego appears to be a sword-wielding jungler. He has abilities that stun opponents that pair well with his ability to camouflage himself. His most notable trait is his passive, which allows Viego to possess enemy champions that Viego has helped defeat.

In terms of champions, a few are receiving small changes. As far as buffs go, Azir, LeBlanc, Nocturne, Shaco, Trundle, and Varus all appear to be getting slight improvements. Darius and Nunu however appear to be receiving nerfs. Champions such as Maokai, Olaf, and Aatrox also received some changes.

On top of all the character changes, there were some minor changes to items. Shurelya's Battlesong received plenty of changes. Sunfire Aegis, Essence Reaver, Hextech Rocketbelt, Galeforce, and Gargoyle Stoneplate all received one minor change. Numerous items such as Umbral Glaive and Runaan's Hurricane will have their price decreased, making them easier to purchase in-game.

With all of these new changes, players eagerly await Jan. 21.
