Riot Games has officially revealed the long-awaited remake of League of Legends champion Udyr the Spirit Walker. The Udyr remake is the latest in a series of visual gameplay updates, known as VGU, to hit the popular online multiplayer arena.
While the new trailer doesn’t cover all of the changes coming to Udyr, it does offer a pretty impressive first look as well as a pretty comprehensive overview. According to Riot Games, Udyr is now capable of communicating with “any and all spirits of the Freljord,” the harsh and oppressive cold land that Udyr and many champions – such as Ashe, Lissandra and Sejuani – call home. Udyr can also channel the ethereal energies of these spirits and use them in his own “wild fighting style”.
Based on the trailer, it looks like Udyr will still be in a pose with the Bear and the Phoenix. However, his Tortoise and Tiger poses appear to have been switched to accommodate the Freljord’s two new creatures: Ram and Boar. Notably, all of this stance’s proper names now refer to the Freljord gods Anivia, Ornn, Iron Boar, and Volibear, adding continuity to the character.
“With the ability to communicate with any and all Freljord, Udyr channel spirits and transform their ethereal energy into their own wild physical fighting style,” Riot Games wrote in the press release. rework, do it again. “Through mastering this dynamic and inspiring force more and more, Udyr seeks to maintain the balance of the Freljord’s mystical landscape, where conflict and struggle are its lifeblood… and where sacrifices must be made to keep the peace.”
In addition to his new gameplay, the trailer also shows off Udyr’s newly improved interface. Assuming his ax and glowing eyes don’t scare off the opposing player, his skeleton will do the trick.
Currently, Riot Games has not announced the official update time. However, fans can expect the Udyr remake to hit the servers in the next few months.
