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.
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!
League PsyOps missions
The PsyOps event features both weekly missions, as well as checkpoints you’ll have to clear to keep progressing.
Every week, you can earn points towards your missions just by playing games. After you hit 35 points, you’ll get 215 tokens. In Week 4 though, there’ll be a bonus 150 on offer. You get 5 points for a win, and 2 points for a loss.

When does the PsyOps event finish?
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.
