League of Legends champions throwdown in ‘A New Dawn’ cinematic short

Posted on July 24, 2014 AT 12:45pm

Riot Games released a six-minute CG video titled “A New Dawn” that imagines the League of Legends world and champions in a much more fleshed-out, cinematic way.

In the video (seen above), the champions do what they’re pretty much best as, and made to do by millions of LoL players daily: brutally fight each other.

According to studio co-founder Brandon Beck, speaking in a behind-scenes video released alongside “A New Dawn” (and embedded below), part of the exercise was for the studio itself—as well as players—to form a deeper connection with League of Legends’ multitude of warriors by imagining them in a more detailed, more animated light.

Champions seen in the short include Ahri, Darius, Draven, Graves, Rengar, and Zyra.
