Riot responds to League of Legends skin rumors in Valorant
Riot has responded to rumors about Valor his upcoming FPS that weapon skins inspired by League of Legends cosmetics are in the works. For the studio, there is “no future plan to link” the two games.
Rumors of the universe of Runeterra meeting that of Valorant circulate since the initial announcement of Project A during the 10 years of League of Legends.
From the different agents that it would be easy to take from the LoL universe to skins inspired by several years of MOBA, the possibilities seem endless.
Valorant will have many skins but they should not be inspired by League of Legends
However, Riot silenced all of these rumors by confirming that there was no connection between the two games.
Qwixzo, an IGN reporter in the Benelux and youtuber from Valorant, confirmed that although he has been informed of the possibility of an URF skin, this League of Legends icon will not appear in Riot’s FPS Games.
The statement came after Qwixzo reported that URF, the unofficial League of Legends mascot, could appear in different ways in Valorant.
Debates then followed to find out, for example, whether the golden spatula of URF could be transformed into a knife or whether other cosmetics inspired by MOBA would be found there. However Riot seems determined to keep these two universes separate.
Still, Valorant will be entitled to cosmetics in the form of weapon skins and agent skins, even if the players are still wondering what the artists of Riot have planned.
