A League of Legends leaker with a reliable track record has potentially revealed that Isolde, Viego’s wife, will be the next champion added to Summoner’s Rift.

League of Legends’ ever-expanding roster of champions has now reached over 150 in total and it doesn’t look like Riot is planning on slowing down anytime soon.

Although it hasn’t even been a month since the release of the Ruined King himself, players are already beginning to speculate on who will be arriving on Summoner’s Rift next.

Well, a reliable leaker may have just confirmed exactly who the new champion will be and she definitely has close ties to Viego.

Leaker suggests Isolde will be the next new champion

The reliable leaker and Brazilian streamer Camilla “Streamiebr” Falk has potentially leaked that Isolde will be the next champion arriving in League of Legends.

In a recent tweet, the streamer revealed that her source told her that players can expect to see the skins Battle Academia Caitlyn and Blitzcrank added to the game soon. Despite that being a big leak in itself, it’s her reply to the original tweet that’s had League fans incredibly excited: “Isolde Academia de Batalha… (especulando).”

Translated into English, Streamiebr is simply speculating that Riot may be planning on making a Battle Academia Isolde skin. Although the skin idea is just a speculation, the fact that she’s acknowledged Isolde as a champion has suggested to fans that her source has told her that she is the new upcoming champion.

Despite this potential leak being incredibly exciting for players, it’s fair to say a lot of League of Legends fans had already predicted that Viego’s wife would be the next champion. In a Dev video back in January, Riot gave players a number of hints about the upcoming champion, linking them to sewing and suggesting they had a direct tie to Viego.

Of course, players immediately made the connection between these hints and Viego’s Wife Isolde, who is described as a seamstress in the lore.

Although the evidence is mounting up for Isolde, it’s important that leaks like this should be taken with a pinch of salt. In the meantime, we’ll just have to keep an eye out for any more clues and hope Riot releases an official reveal as soon as possible.

Sony’s next major State of Play event is on the horizon as the PlayStation nation is in store for “deep dives” on a wide array of upcoming titles. From when it all kicks off to what we can expect, here’s everything there is to know.

With a lack of physical events in 2021, gaming industry juggernauts have turned to online events to break the latest news. Hot off the heels of Nintendo’s latest Direct event, Sony is next in line for a huge showcase.

State of Play broadcasts have ranged from smaller indie events to blockbuster hardware reveals. This time around, Sony appears set to focus on upcoming PS4 and PS5 titles.

There were just four State of Play events through 2020 and each focused on major developments for the PlayStation brand. You won’t want to miss the next livestream; here’s how you can tune in.

When is Sony’s next State of Play event?

Sony locked in dates for the next State of Play event in a February 23 announcement. It’s all set to go live on Thursday, February 25 at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 10 PM GMT.

While no exact duration was announced, Sony expects the upcoming broadcast to run for roughly “30 minutes or so.”

No different from previous events, this State of Play will be streamed live across the official PlayStation YouTube and Twitch channels. We’ve embedded the stream below for your convenience.

Sony confirms State of Play details

While no specific titles were mentioned, Sony confirmed that 10 games will be in focus throughout the upcoming stream. These games will range from indie titles, to third-party developments, and even brand new game announcements.

The event won’t fixate solely on PS5 releases either. A number of the titles on display are coming to both PS4 & PS5, they confirmed in a recent blog post.

There also won’t be an emphasis on “PlayStation hardware or business-focused updates” throughout the stream; this State of Play is about upcoming games.

What to expect from the next State of Play event?

Almost a quarter of the way through the year already, Sony still has a long list of titles set for the coming nine months. It’s safe to assume this State of Play could provide new looks at Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Deathloop, and even Returnal.

It’s likely too early for any considerable updates on the likes of Horizon Forbidden West or the God of War sequel, however. 

With new games set to be revealed though, anything is possible.

We’re yet to hear from Bend Studio, Santa Monica Studio is rumored to be working on a second project, and of course, Naughty Dog has been relatively quiet since the release of The Last of Us Part II. It’s possible we finally see the multiplayer update in action, along with a potential PS5 port.
