The next League of Legends champion is going to be released much sooner than many would have thought, especially with Naafiri just having come onto the live servers. So, when can we expect this brand-new jungle champion on Summoner's Rift? 

Thankfully we don't have to look too hard, because Riot themselves, gave us some key information on the upcoming jungler, Briar and when we can expect her on the Rift. So let's go over the key information right now so you'll be prepared when she is going to be released. 

LoL: Briar Release Window Revealed By Devs

Briar is going to be a vampiric jungler who is being designed by none other than Riot August, who is known for his champions like Jinx, Jhin and Zeri. Now the question most people have is whether Briar will take the Zeri route and be un-balanceable or whether she is going to be like Jhin who is perfect (I am not biased...). 

In a recent dev vlog, Riot Brightmoon revealed that by the time they release their next update, players will already have seen Briar. So, what does this mean? She will likely be on the PBE by the time their next Dev blog is released. 

These Dev blogs usually come out every month or month-and-a-half so we can expect Briar to be released around LoL Patch 13.19 or LoL Patch 13.20, with her being on the PBE by the end of summer and beginning of Fall. 

LoL Patch 13.18 is set to release September 13, meaning the PBE for this patch is going to go live around August 29. 

Briar will not be played at the 2023 League of Legends World Championship, so we are going to have to wait until the start of the new professional LoL seasons (or the Demacia Cup) to see how she fares in pro-play but it's exciting to know and see what this champion is going to be up to and what her entire kit will entail once she is released.
