Riven and Irelia will be the first set of champions to arrive in Wild Rift through an event called 'Broken Blades'. In order to unlock them for free players will have to complete missions related to the two champions.

Rune System Changes

The rune system in Wild Rift Patch 2.3 will also undergo massive changes, replacing some of the runes while balancing the ones that still remain in the game. Riot Games’ goal is to make every rune usable with clear strengths and weaknesses. 

The objective of the new rune system is to add diversity to every match instead of just using the same rune setup for every champion. The upcoming update will also make it easy for new players to build their rune setup, as the effects are much easier to understand and less complicated. A complete rundown of the Rune System changes can be found here.

Close Friends Feature

Players who enjoy playing Wild Rift with their friends will soon have access to a new system that will allow them to flex their friendship in-game. As part of the Close Friends feature, by playing together and gifting each other in-game goodies players will be able to level up their friendship and gain rewards.
