Riot Games has revealed the next champion that will be added to League of Legends, Braum, the Heart of the Freljord.

“Braum is a strong and resilient melee support capable of making game-changing plays while saving his team from a barrage of enemy attacks,” Riot explains. “He forms symbiotic bonds with the marksman he fights alongside, forming a wall between the two teams and leaping to the aid of his allies as he transitions into a late game tank.

“In lane, Braum functions most effectively as a reactionary or opportunistic support, constantly on the lookout for chances to apply Concussive Blows to the enemy duo. Accurate use of Winter’s Bite triggers the mark on targets who’ve wandered from their minion wave, while Braum can tag aggressive enemies with basic attacks before leaping back to the ranged safety of his marksman with Stand Behind Me.

“After applying Concussive Blows, Braum and his marksman have two solid options: either follow up hard and try to activate the stun, or zone the enemy and take up aggressive positioning.”

Braum has access to “Winter’s Bite,” which propels a line of freezing ice from his shield, “Stand Behind Me,” which sees him leap to an ally shielding them from attacks, and “Unbreakable,” where he uses his shield to negate one attack and reduce damage from subsequent attacks. Finally, Braum has access to “Glacial Fissure”: “Braum slams his shield into the ground, sending out a huge long-range skillshot that knocks up and damages all enemies caught before leaving behind a strong slow field.”

No release date for this new character was offered. You can find more information about him here.
