One of the most popular skins last year in League of Legends was PROJECT: Yasuo, a special outfit that made the samurai warrior look like an extra from Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Shocking as it might sound, Riot saw how much fans liked this new robo-Yasuo and decided to make five more PROJECT skins this year.
The new skins, which will be released during the 5.17 patch that goes live this week, allow you to (potentially) assemble an entire futuristic-robot-ninja-looking team. And based on the screenshots that've been meticulously assembled by the popular League of Legends news site Surrender at 20, that team would look pretty darn cool.
There's Fiora the deadly fencer:
Zed the ninja, who now looks like a... robotic bird of some sort?
Master Yi, another Ninja character:
Leona, a sword and shield-toting fighter:
And my personal favourite, the dual-pistol-wielding marksmen Lucian, who now wields two laser pistols instead of light-powered pistols (ask the lore writers):
I swear that I've played a game with this guy in it before.
Here's the whole gang together:
You can also get a new PROJECT-themed ward:
A final neat little detail is: if you play with another PROJECT skins on one team, you'll get a cool extra effect where the minions adopt a sleek robotic look as well:
Man. Why do all these things have to cost so much friggin' money? I'm going to be so very broke so very soon.
