Riot has surprised us with a good chunk of skins coming to live servers that didn’t appear at all on the Public Beta Environment. Odyssey Kayn, Sona, Jinx, Yasuo, Ziggs and Malphite are launching directly into patch 8.18, Riot Games confirmed in an e-mail release. (Ziggs was nowhere to be seen in the announcement cinematic, however.)
These Odyssey skins are part of a special event, including a new PvE rotating game mode. All five skins are unlocked in the game mode.
Kayn’s skin is Legendary at 1820 RP, while the rest of the skins are Epic and worth 1350 RP.
These skins are not part of any skin line we’ve seen before and clearly take on a very diverse sci-fi theme. Most of the characters look like they could be a rag-tag group of travelers from different planets who just so happened to get together, like out of Guardians of the Galaxy. Sona’s look is definitely something refreshing and new that we haven’t seen for her before.
Kayn does look extremely evil in the trailer, though. He’s staying pretty in-character.
Jinx is rocking a mechanical arm and even more of an extreme look than usual! It suits her, of course.
This post will be updated as that information becomes available.
