Are you ready to take part in Operation: Songbird? The League of Legends PsyOps event is here, with new skins for Sona, Ezreal, the unreleased Samira, and more. There’s also a host of missions you can play with tons of rewards ⁠— including a Prestige skin.

It’s pretty hard to top an event like Spirit Blossom. 11 new skins, a visual novel-esque in-client experience, and a boatload of rewards? It was a truly special event. However, Riot aren’t slouching off with PsyOps.

With 11 skins in the all-new PsyOps collection on their way across patches 10.18 and 10.19, and a host of rewards and missions to play through, Operation: Songbird could live up to the lofty standards of the previous event.

Here’s everything you need to know about the PsyOps event.

League PsyOps skins for Samira, Ezreal, more

There will be 11 PsyOps skins total, making it one of the biggest event drops in Season 10. Much like the Spirit Blossom event, the content will be dropped over two patches ⁠— Patch 10.18 and 10.19.

In Patch 10.18, the first six skins will be released. They’ll be for Sona, Vi, Shen, Master Yi, and Ezreal ⁠— the latter of which is getting a Prestige skin. The skin set definitely has a feel like some Project skins from years gone by, but they’ve also got some distinctive features about them.

Most of the skins will cost 1350 RP, except for Ezreal’s Prestige skin. That’ll set you back 100 Prestige points, or 2000 PsyOps points in the event shop.

There are also skins for Kayle, Pyke, Viktor, Zed, and the unreleased Samira coming on Patch 10.19. That’s set to drop on September 16, so be sure to save your RP if you want to pick those up.

League PsyOps event pass

Like all other League events, the PsyOps event will come with a pass. This pass will give you access to a lot more content than just the free track. Extra missions, event orbs, hextech chests and keys, Prestige points: These passes are loaded with value.

The PsyOps event pass will set you back 1650 RP, just a smidge over $10 USD. The bundle will include four PsyOps orbs, worth 1000 RP, and 200 event tokens on top, so it’s good value regardless.

If you want to gun for the Prestige Ezreal skin, or farming banners for your favorite champions, you’ll need to buy the pass to make sure you can get enough tokens.

One For All will be live for new event

Nexus Blitz has departed with the end of the Spirit Blossom event, but a new rotating game mode is back. Fan-favorite One For All will be live for the PsyOps event, and there’s going to be some special pass missions for you to complete.

One For All presents the perfect opportunity to play some of League’s newest champions. With Lillia, Yone, and now Samira coming out in quick succession, you might not have had the chance to play them. In One For All, you won’t have to worry about someone instalocking it away, so go wild!

The PsyOps event will kick off on September 3. It will run all the way through to Patch 10.20 on September 30. You’ll have until then to complete your missions, but you’ll have some time after to spend your tokens.

The reason why PsyOps is being cut a bit short is to make way for the Worlds 2020 event starting October 1, and that’s something you won’t want to miss.

Cosplay

League cosplayer comes out from the shadows as amazing Akali

Ever seen a League of Legends cosplay so good that Riot can’t help but share it with the world? Well, now you have, with Sweet Angel’s take on Akali taking League players by storm.

Akali is one of League of Legends’ most popular characters to cosplay. Whether it be her default skin, or the mega-popular K/DA variant, people love to show off as the Ionian assassin.

However, few manage to grab the eyes of Riot as much as Sweet Angel. The talented Italian cosplayer decided to take on Akali as her most recent project, and while the costume looks simple, it was anything but.

Akali is one of the most popular League champions to cosplay, but few catch the eyes of Riot.

“I thought it was a simple costume, but it required a lot more attention and time than I thought,” she told fans on her website.

It took Sweet Angel about 100 hours all up to create the Akali cosplay ⁠— and you can see every bit of hard work and time that went into it. From the handmade wig, to the dress, and even Akali’s smoke bombs, Sweet Angel didn’t miss a beat.

Everything that you see was basically handmade. Sweet Angel sewed all of the fabrics together, stitched everything up, and made it tailored not only to herself, but true to life to Akali’s design.

She even designed Akali’s signature Kana, using EVA foam so she can carry it around without too much hassle.

She added every detail to the weapon like she did the costume too, from the leather handle all the way down to the marks and blemishes on the battle-worn blade.

The cosplay is so good that even the official League of Legends account couldn’t help but react. Sweet Angel got a retweet on the cosplay from the near five million follower account, and they don’t hand those out lightly.

As for her next cosplay, Sweet Angel hasn’t revealed her plans just yet. However, she’s got a few more shoots on the way, and if they’re anything like this Akali cosplay, they’ll be worth a gander.
