Riot Games Launches Star Guardian Event Across League Games

Riot Games is bringing back the fourth iteration of its Star Guardians universe, an alternate reality where League Heroes are magical girls, for a 10-week event taking place across Riot’s League games. It kicks off on Thursday, July 14, and in-game activities will be accompanied by other multimedia content.

Star Guardian content like new skins, champions, and an event pass will appear in League of Legends, Wild Rift, and Legends of Runeterra. In out-of-game activities, Porter Robinson kicks off the Star Guardian event with an original song titled Everything Goes On. A Star Guardian merch line will also be available for purchase, and a new Sessions album–a line of streaming-friendly music Riot developed with musicians–called Star Guardian Taliyah will also be released.
