Riot Blitzcrank and Arcade Hecarim at gamescom

By RiotWenceslaus

We're kicking off the new convention circuit at gamescom in Cologne, Germany. That means another year of Riot Games antics at venues across the globe, and a brand new run of convention skins.

This year, gamescom attendees will be the first to get their hands on the latest additions to the Riot and Arcade skin lines: Riot Blitzcrank and Arcade Hecarim. Free codes are available at the booth, so be sure to stop by and pay us a visit if you're in the neighborhood. If you can't make it to Germany you can also snag both skins in the League of Legends store.


Arcade Hecarim, the latest and 8-bittiest of the digitally reduxed champions, will be a permanent addition to the League of Legends store. Featuring new sounds, an arcade-inspired recall animation, some electric VO processing, and new spell effects including a color-draining Spirit of Dread, Hecarim's decked out in our most ambitious arcade attire to date. He'll debut at 1350 RP, but you can pick him up on sale for 975 RP if you buy before we leave gamescom on August 25th.


Riot Blitzcrank, a riotous reimagining of your favorite steam golem, is only available while we're on location at one of our convention stops. If you don’t pick him up for 975 RP before we hit the road on August 25th, you'll have to wait ‘til we set up shop at PAX. Riot Blitzcrank and Riot Graves are available in the store until after we leave PAX Prime on September 3rd.


Riot Graves from last year's convention lineup will also make one final appearance for 975 RP while we're at gamescom. Once we pack up and hit the road on August 25th September 3rd, he's retiring to the Legacy Skins Vault, so be sure to snag the outlaw in full riot gear while you've got the chance.
