New Teamfight Tactics Arena Skins Announced
If you’re a fan of cosmetic items, HUD skins, announcers and the like you’re probably not satisfied with what Riot currently offers in-game. Other than skins, emotes and chromas (the last of which is especially unappealing), there’s not much to get excited about. Riot has been fairly conservative over the years, but it seems like they’re finally listening to player feedback and are starting to create the content fans want — like Teamfight Tactics arena skins!
To give players more options when it comes to TFT-specific customization, Riot is releasing Freljord-themed skins, one to represent each faction from “the coldest region in Runeterra.”
These three Teamfight Tactics arena skins aren’t just cosmetic either as they come with unique models, colors, lighting, animations as well as sound effects. So you’re getting the full shebang for your money. This is just the beginning for map skins as they’re working on a lot of other (non-Freljord) skins that’ll be released in the future. You can take a closer look at Riot’s early concepts down below, but have in mind that things might change considerably over time.
The three initial Freljord arena skins will be available for 1380 RP once patch 9.22 rolls out, and if you’re really into Freljord you can snag all three for 2900 RP. Riot is even releasing arena chromas for 450 RP.
If you want to test them out before buying, you can hop on to the PBE (Public Beta Environment) and check them out without making the plunge.
Riot was unwilling to release such items for the longest time, and we’re ecstatic that they’re finally doing what players want the most: more ways to alter the game to their liking.
Changes like the ones mentioned above only add a layer of customization — you get a chance to personalize the game you love even further. DOTA 2 is the perfect example as it offers a staggering amount of content. Riot never wanted to go down that road, but we never got a good explanation as to why that was the case. After all, it’s a win-win situation. The players get what they want, and Riot gets more revenue. There’s really no downside.
We can only hope that they continue in such a direction, and release items for the Summoner’s Rift and ARAM as well!
