Pride Month has become an annual tradition for Riot Games and this is also reflected in their games. This year, Riot Games is going to release a bunch of Pride themed or coloured cosmetics in support of the LGBTQIA+ community. A lot of the cosmetics were revealed in a trailer they released yesterday, you can check that out here.
League of Legends LGBTQIA+ Cosmetics
In 2018, Riot Games created the Rainbow Fluft, so all the Pride people can show their support all year long in their icons. This year, the Fluft is going to be joined by a Penguin, who will be carrying a Pride coloured ball. This icon will probably be available via challenges or in the shop. Not as cute as the Fluft, but definitely up there on the cuteness scale.
Other than the icons, we can also look forward to several different emotes. One of them will be of our new favourite couple, Graves and Twisted Fate. I mean, who knew they'd make such a great pair? The probably coolest cosmetic will be the rainbow trail, available for all champions. I mean, running around and leaving a rainbow trail behind is such a cool idea. Something straight out of a Skittles advert, am I right?
Pride Content Coming For Other Games
If you're not a LoL player and still want to support the LGBTQIA+ community, then don't worry, Riot has you covered. They will be releasing content for all of their games. So, what can we expect?
League of Legends Wild Rift: Wild Rift players will be getting the same content as the LoL players, so Icons, Emotes and the rainbow trail
Teamfight Tactics: TFT players will be getting a new rainbow boom, on top of a new victory cheer, when you finish in 1st place.
Valorant: Valorant will get a weapon charm, in the rainbow colours. The charm will be the Valorant V-logo. A new player banner will also be available.
Legends of Runeterra: All you card game nerds, can look forward to a new card back, displaying the new happy Graves and TF couple and some new animations.
And that's all the Pride content Riot is blessing us with. A great opportunity to come together as one and support a great cause. I'm glad that Riot takes this so serious.
