League of Legends Zeri Champion – Release Date, Abilities and Lane & Everything We Have So Far
League of Legends released their 2022 patch earlier this week. But, fans were treated to a pleasant surprise when the next champion was revealed.
“Zeri, the Spark of Zaun“, is League of Legends’ 158th playable champion. Although she has been teased for some while, her official reveal seems to have been made slightly too early, after a significant biography leak from Riot Games’ website. It seems like the next champion will be announced soon, regardless of what.
Please continue reading to learn everything we know about Riot Game’s next League of Legends champion. This includes when she will be released from Riot Game, her potential abilities and more.
The official trailer for League of Legends’ new champion, Zeri, Spark of Zaun, has been released. Zeri’s release date and when she will be added to the PBE are still unknown.
Let’s take a moment to enjoy the new trailer below.
Zero is voiced in Filipino by Vanille Velasquez (voice actor from the Philippines), who is also, curiously, the voice actor for Neon, Valorent’s new agent.
Who is Zeri, Spark of Zaun?
Here’s a little bit of information courtesy of Zeri’s leaked biography:
Zero is a strong, determined young woman hailing from Zaun’s working class. She uses her electric magic to recharge her gun and herself. Her volatile power mirrors her emotions, and her sparks reflect her lightning-fast approach. Zero is deeply compassionate and brings the love of her family to every fight. Zero is not always able to help everyone, but she believes that if you stand up for your community, it will support you.
Zeri’s bio also suggests Ekko as a similar champion, although it is unclear how they are connected. It would be fascinating to see Zeri in Arcane Season 2 later on.
LoL Zeri Release Date
Riot developers have teased Zeri’s release for some time, but her official announcement seems a little premature. The team accidentally published Zeri’s champion biography.
Anyone trying to access Zeri’s bio via the League of Legends website will be presented with a 404. It remains to be seen if she will be released earlier.
What time does Zeri become available in League?
We cannot give an exact date, but we know that Zeri is not available on the game’s PBE testing servers using the LoL 12.2 patch. You can therefore rule out Zeri’s launch before Thursday, 20 January.
Zero could launch with the next update to the game, Patch 12.3, which is currently scheduled to release on February 1, 2022, according to Riot’s League of Legends 2022 Patch Schedule.
