Brace yourselves, summoners, as Riot Games is about to ignite the world of Runeterra with a brand new event: Soul Fighter. Inspired by the intense emotional resonance and unique character moments of fighting games and anime tournament arcs, Soul Fighter is set to revolutionize the gaming landscape of League of Legends. This six-week event, running from July 20 through August 28, promises an exciting blend of new game modes, champions, skins, and more, across different Riot Games platforms, including League of Legends, Wild Rift, Teamfight Tactics, and Legends of Runeterra.

Overview of the Soul Fighter Event

The Soul Fighter event takes place in a vibrant and diverse world, where competitors strive to establish their supremacy through combat on the world’s biggest stage, the "Tournament of Souls". Hosted by the enigmatic God’s Eye, the tournament will see fighters with extraordinary abilities engage in fierce battles until only one champion remains. This thrilling competition forms the centerpiece of the Soul Fighter event, captivating players with its high-octane battles and unexpected twists.

New Additions in League of Legends

In League of Legends, Soul Fighter is introducing a bevy of new content. This includes a fresh game mode dubbed "Arena", the launch of a new champion, Naafiri the Hound of a Hundred Bites, and a treasure trove of skins, including an Ultimate skin. The event will also feature an in-client metagame experience, the "Tournament of Souls", where players will have the chance to assume the role of Samira and fight through the tournament.

Details of the New Arena Game Mode

In the newly introduced Arena game mode, four teams of two players each will battle it out in rotating combat rounds. After each round, the teams will power up with unique Augments until only one team is left standing. Combat will take place across four distinct battlefields, each varying in size, terrain density, and theme. To add an extra layer of excitement, champions from the Soul Fighter universe will make occasional cameo appearances in matches, sometimes aiding the teams and at other times proving to be a hindrance.

Tournament of Souls

The "Tournament of Souls" is a style-rating-focused combo-battler that unfolds within the client. As Samira, players will accrue a Reputation by playing games of League, which will enable them to face new opponents and unlock new abilities. The goal of the tournament is to emerge as the champion by defeating all ten opponents. Players can claim rewards after each victory and take on new challenges after unlocking the Story and Expert difficulty levels.


The upcoming Soul Fighter event is a testament to Riot Games' commitment to keeping the League of Legends experience fresh and engaging for its players. With its unique mix of new game modes, characters, and skins, it's set to provide players with countless hours of thrilling gameplay.
