New League of Legends Champion ‘Yasuo the Unforgiven’ Revealed

Developer Riot Games today revealed the next champion coming to their immensely popular multiplayer online battle arena game League of Legends: Yasuo, the Unforgiven.

Yasuo is described as “a sustained damage fighter with high mobility, strong utility, and damage output that ramps up the longer he survives in combat.” These abilities come at the expense of Yasuo’s early game, when the character has low damage output.

His abilities include a passive ability that doubles his critical strike chance, an attack that damages all enemies in a line, power that replenishes his Flow faster when in passive and creates a wall of wind that blocks projectiles when active, and attack that’s effective against Airborne enemies, and an attack that gains power with successive use.

“Yasuo dashes to solemn victory, harnessing the raw power of the wind to elevate his unmatched elemental swordsmanship,” reads the character description. “A former member of an Ionian martial school and the only student to have mastered a legendary wind technique. Yasuo now lies a tempestuous life, drifting through Runeterra as he hunts the true killer of the Ionian elder he was sworn to protect.”

No mention of when Yasuo will be added to League of Legends. The Champion is presumably in beta testing at the moment, so it shouldn’t be too long.
