This year, Riot is partnering with NewJeans to bring "GODS" to the public, which will tell the story of the 2022 League of Legends World Champion Kim "Deft" Hyuk-kyu, who managed to defy all odds and finally win his first World Championship.
The song is set to release on October 4, 2023 and according to the official YouTube video it should make its premiere at 6:57 am CEST / 0:57 am EST. There will likely be a 3-minute countdown, hence why the video is set to debut at such a precise time.
The time is also pretty early in the morning, or late at night, due to the World Championship taking place in South Korea this year, which is also where NewJeans is from. So if you're impatient you can already check out the video and wait for it to premiere... but you'll be waiting for quite some time until it actually releases.
