Preseason is the time when Riot Games implements some of their bigger changes to the game. Here is an overview of all the new, old and returning, and updated items coming to League of Legends for preseason 2023.

Once again, we are nearing the League of Legends Preseason, and we are more than ready to see what Riot has in store for us in 2023.  One of the major changes going into next season will be for the jungler, but we are also seeing some new items being added to the game.

Not only will we be spoiled with new items this preseason, but we will also see the return of old beloved items and items already in the game getting an update. So without further ado, let's dive into it.

LoL Preseason 2023: All Item Updates

Before looking more closely at every item that will be added, changed, or returned to the game, it is important to note that the item stats are not final and could be changed depending on the results shown in PBE and players' feedback.
