With Wild Rift releasing their new champion, Wukong, the champion pool for Wild Rift is slowly starting to grow as time goes on. Riot Games has said that they intend to release a lot more champions in the coming days. It looks like they are set to deliver on their promises. Recent leaks from data miners have revealed a ton of information about the upcoming champions for Wild Rift.
According to Chowz_Channel, a Wild Rift data miner, These character models were found in the game files of the Alpha version of the game currently present in China & Brazil. This means that these champions are already being worked on by the Wild Rift team and could be added to the game in 2021.
Most of these champions have their character models in the game files, while other champions only have their skin and hero descriptions.
Here is the list of Champions found in the game files of Wild Rift during the Alpha Testing phase;
Supports are enchanters that can disrupt enemy team fights or help teammates by giving them heals and shields.
Marksmen will deal damage from a distance and are usually partnered with supports or tanks who can protect them during a fight.
Mages deal a tremendous amount of damage for a short time. Their role is usually to take down the back lane champions in a team fight as fast as possible before they get killed.
Fighters are in charge of initiating a team fight. They can deal a fair amount of damage and have a wide range of options to escape when the fight goes against their favor.
Tanks protect the team with their massive armor and HP. They are usually hard to kill and will protect their allies at all costs.
Riot Games did confirm that Teemo is coming soon and his friends will be joining him. Fans speculate that the Yordle race might be next in line to be released. These champions include Teemo, Lulu, Tristana, Corki, Poppy, and Kennen.
Riot Games has yet to announce more information regarding Teemo’s release. Perhaps we’ll hear from the devs after Wukong’s event, which will be ending on December 31, 2020. Until then, take this information with a grain of salt.
Riot Games have been very tight-lipped about their upcoming champion releases. In an interview with Wild Rift’s lead designer, they revealed that they plan to release champions in a regular interval. They don’t want to rush in releasing all 153 champions currently present in the PC version of League of Legends.
