Battlecast Vel'Koz teased for League of Legends
League of Legends newly revealed champion Vel'Koz will be getting a Battlecast skin, courtesy of Creator Victor. Following yesterday's reveal of the new champion's abilities, Riot Games posted a message teasing the new skin.
Captured subject suspends itself in mid-air with no apparent wings or jet propulsion. Point lasers and other Void armaments show Battlecast potential. Subject demonstrates high levels of intelligence, but will be bent to my will.
Replacing the organic carapace of Void creatures is quotidian science for me, but the shift to gunmetal and red armor never fails to please my inner aesthete. The creature’s intelligence quotient has been retained, but restrained. The creature only interprets data in terms of how to destroy a target. Any other form of expression has been disabled. I reverse-engineered its armaments, significantly upgrading them to high-intensity lasers and advanced rocketry.
The Infiltrator’s first field test will be to recon a Resistance cell, collect information on the wider network of Resistance members and dispose of the camp’s troublesome leader. Upgraded, evolved and mine, Battlecast Vel’Koz will not fail me.
Vel'Koz is currently playable on the Public Beta Environment, though he's missing some sound effects. We're currently testing him -- and his Battlecast skin -- now and will provide a video of it later today. In the meantime, check out his abilities and playstyle here.
