Wild Rift Upcoming Champions in April and May 2021
The 5 new Wild Rift champions are expected to arrive sometime in April and May along with various events themed around these champions. Here is the list of champions and their release dates.
Galio - April 1, 2021
Galio is a tank/mage that is well suited in the mid-lane. He is exceptionally good at initiating team fights and serves as the team’s tank while also dealing a ton of AoE (Area of Effect) damage.
Rammus - April 22, 2021
Kha’Zix - May 6, 2021
Kha’Zix is a champion well suited in the Jungle Lane that gains power through evolution. As he levels up, he gains unique abilities that allow him to be even deadlier on the battlefield. He can also turn invisible at will which makes him very good at ganking lanes.
Rengar - May 6, 2021
Rengar is an assassin better suited in the Jungle Lane. He is a hunter that collects trophies from his prey, allowing him to gain extra abilities. He can also pounce onto enemies whenever he is inside the brushes or invisible, allowing him to catch enemies off guard. If Rengar is on the enemy team, it is best to place as many wards in brushes as you can.
Renekton - May 12, 2021
Renekton is a fighter best suited in the Baron Lane. Renekton gains fury for each attack he makes, which keeps increasing the lower his HP becomes. Gaining enough fury empowers his abilities, making him even deadlier. He also has the ability to shred enemy armor making them receive even more damage.
Keep in mind that the released dates for the upcoming champions in Wild Rift, with the exception of Galio, are still subject to change depending on the developers. However, we can expect these champions to arrive within the month of April and May 2021.
