Three upcoming League of Legends (LoL): Wild Rift champions have been uncovered by data miners. These were found in the Wild Rift China beta files, revealing in-game assets for the marksman Caitlyn, the fighter Jayce, and the mage Veigar. In the Wild Rift China beta game files Caitlyn’s in-game splash art received slight changes compared to the LoL PC version. The rest of the two champions stayed true to their LoL PC counterparts. The data miners speculated that these champions will be released in Wild Rift patch 2.5. However, Riot Games is yet to confirm whether the three leaked champions will be arriving soon.

Wild Rift may be releasing Caitlyn, Jayce, and Veigar soon

A lot has transpired during the previous patches. Players dove into one of the biggest crossover events, the Sentinel of Light which was ongoing simultaneously throughout Riot Game’s video game franchises such as Valorant, Team Fight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra, LoL PC, and Wild Rift. The event introduced a ton of new champions and in-game rewards for players to collect.

The Wild Rift Patch 2.4 cycle is almost at its end with Patch 2.4c being the most recent patch update. Fans are eagerly awaiting the upcoming Dev Diary video which will provide players a glimpse into what they can expect to arrive soon within the game. However, data miners have already started digging inside the game files to see what can potentially be the content for the upcoming patch update.

According to data miner, Chowz, three new champions may be arriving in the game soon. The data miner revealed a screenshot of in-game assets for Caitlyn, Jayce, and Veigar. However, Caitlyn’s splash art received a slight change, showing less skin by covering some parts of her body.

In the LoL PC version, Caitlyn is a marksman champion who may be easy to use but hard to master. She can place traps around the map that can stun enemies for a short duration and can also increase her range and damage towards the enemies affected.

Jayce is a flexible fighter champion in Lol PC. He can switch his weapon from melee to ranged attacks that also change his abilities depending on what his weapon transforms into, allowing him to have multiple combos and playstyles.

The mage champion, Viegar, is widely known in the LoL PC version to be a late-game monster. His damage can infinitely scale as he gains bonus ability power (AP) each time he hits a champion with his abilities. He gains even more stacks if he can kill enemies with his skills. This makes him quite dangerous during the late game if he manages to acquire a lot of stacks.

Riot Games is yet to confirm the release of these three new champions in Wild Rift.

It will be interesting to see how these champions will be able to shake up the meta in Wild Rift if they ever get released in the upcoming Wild Rift 2.5 patch update. For now, fans will have to keep their eyes peeled for the official announcement from Riot Games.
