With the League of Legends TV show Arcane hitting screens in November, four of its main characters are getting skins in-game to celebrate. New crossover looks for Caitlyn, Jayce, Jinx, and Vi have been revealed as hype grows around the Netflix show

The hype around League of Legends’ first major cinematic project, Arcane, is real.

The nine-episode TV show, based in Piltover and Zaun, features some of the game’s most iconic characters ⁠— including sisters Jinx and Vi as the main stars.

However, the show won’t be the end of the content coming out of Arcane. In fact, League of Legends players can look forward to skins inspired by the looks of their favorite characters in Arcane.

Four League of Legends Arcane skins were “leaked” for Caitlyn, Jayce, Jinx, and Vi.

Splash arts for their new cosmetics were added as part of TFT Set 6, named Gizmos & Gadgets, which officially launches on the PBE on October 20.

Caitlyn, Jayce, Jinx, and Vi all feature in the Piltover and Zaun-themed set, which is heavily inspired by Arcane.

Two of the skins — Jayce and Vi’s — have since been added to the League of Legends PBE as “reward” skins, implying they could be a part of a wider crossover event between the TV show and the game.

Their models look slightly different to their base skins, which the Arcane splash arts are very heavily based on.

While Caitlyn is getting a visual upgrade, the other three champions have no such plans for League of Legends Season 12 and beyond.

With the show’s premiere just around the corner, a set of League of Legends Arcane skins will be much-loved by the game’s fandom.

League of Legends Arcane skins release date

With the Arcane skins entering testing on League of Legends patch 11.22, a release date of November 3 seems like the logical answer.

The next Teamfight Tactics set releases on the same update too, while Arcane will be hitting Netflix on November 6.

Keep your eyes peeled for a bigger in-game event too where the full Arcane cast might feature.
