Earlier this year, Riot let fans vote on various skin concepts and which they would like to see on the rift and finally, we get to see the end product. We've only knew of the concept art behind the Akali and Twisted Fate Crime City Nightmare skins. Now we have the whole set and more on PBE!

League of Legends is diversifying their skin game. We’ve gotten the same Pool Party and PROJECT skins year and year again, so now it’s time for something new. The best skin line thus far had to have been Space Groove, which was another brand new concept for skins.

This time we’re going into the underbelly with Crime City Nightmare skins!

Which Champions are Getting Crime City Nightmare Skins?

A total of five Crime City Nightmare skins will be released. As mentioned above, Twisted Fate and Akali are on the receiving end of new skins, but here is the list of all champions getting new skins:

  • Twisted Fate
  • Akali
  • Zyra
  • Darius
  • Shaco
Debonair 20 skin concept

Is Crime City Nightmare Related to Debonair 2.0?

Crime City Nightmare resembles the Debonair skins. This could also be a merge between the two universes, since the skin line bio states that “backroom black markets have given rise to elixirs, a valuable magical export whose production spells money and influence should any gang find a way to corner the market.

Since Elixirs also played a part in the Debonair 2.0 skin line – which is also set to be released this year – this could be an indication that these series play in the same universe. Maybe we will see an epic battle between Debonair 2.0 Malzahar and Crime City Nightmare Twisted Fate?

What Other Skins Have Hit the PBE Server?

Crime City Nightmare aren't the only skins that have hit the PBE server. Three more skins are also being tested currently in the Phoenix skin line. Xayah, Anivia and Seraphine will be donning the golden and bright Phoenix skins in LoL Patch 11.17.

Brave Phoenix Xayah molds perfectly into her look and is a skin that fits Xayah’s champion concept, while Divine Phoenix Anivia is another great looking skin. Hopefully, Anivia’s old champion model is able to make this skin shine. Graceful Phoenix Seraphine is probably the worst of the bunch. Seraphine has no bird traits, like Xayah and Anivia, which make her questionable.

When Will the Phoenix and Crime City Nightmare Skins be Released?

These skins are currently being tested on the PBE server but should be coming in LoL Patch 11.17. According to the LoL patch schedule, the patch drops on August 25th, which means the skins will be available a day or so later.
