New assets added to League’s PBE server suggest that Pulsefire 2020 will be the next in-game event, coming shortly after the conclusion of the current Galaxies event.

League of Legends players have been treated to events galore in the last couple of seasons, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping. With Galaxies still kicking on, rumors about what the next one could be have been circulating.

All fingers are pointing towards a new Pulsefire event, with new assets in one of League’s most prestigious skin lines being added to the PBE server during the Patch 10.9 cycle.

According to [email protected], mission assets relating to Pulsefire 2020 were added to the test server on April 16. These include a small missions banner, and two icons ⁠— presumably for two different questlines.

This follows on from Galaxies, which was the first event in Season 10 to feature factions. Players could choose Duty or Ambition, with the winner at the end of the event receiving additional cosmetics for either Cosmic Lux or Dark Cosmic Lux respectively.

Something similar could be teed up for Pulsefire 2020 ⁠— if it’s next in line.

Speaking of Galaxies, however ⁠— it has been the most widely-criticized event in some time. After Riot increased the grind and cut the rewards on offer, while not changing the price of the pass, some players have voiced their concern.

Given how well received the Mecha Kingdoms event was at the start of the year, the Galaxies event has failed to attract the same kind of fanfare.

Players will be hoping that Riot reverts some of the changes for the rumoured Pulsefire event to make the grind a bit easier, as well as reward players fairly for devoting their time into the game.

Nothing else known about the Pulsefire event, but if it’s to be believed, players can expect a few new skins, and chromas for the existing Pulsefire Caitlyn, Ezreal, Riven, Shen, Thresh, and Twisted Fate cosmetics.

The Pulsefire storyline is one that’s been explored in-depth in League of Legends lore, so we can possibly expect Graves and Fiddlesticks to make appearances in this year’s rendition. Lucian is also set for an event-based Prestige skin, and this might just be the one.
