PROJECT is a set of skins from an alternate universe in the future of Piltover and Zuan. It heavily leans on a cyberpunk theme of a dystopian society riddled with cyborgs and body modifications - the perfect setup for some amazing cosmetics.
Riot Games teased their next lineup for the skins recently, and now the wait is finally over as the company dropped an official teaser trailer showcasing the upcoming content.
In the teaser, fans are treated with an intense cinematic of Pyke ripping off a cyborg's head before destroying it with his hand. It then shows four heroes in their new skins - Pyke, Akali, Irelia, and Jinx - standing before the futuristic world that PROJECT takes place in.
“A band of cybernetic castoffs plans to infiltrate The City to destroy the entity that created—and then abandoned—them: the PROJECT Corporation,” the trailer description reads.
In a surprise that will delight fans, Riot employee 'RiotEarthSlug' posted on Reddit that there was actually a fifth hero skin teased in the trailer, and told people to be on the lookout for it. Unsurprisingly, dedicated supporters discovered the tease almost instantly.
One eagle-eyed fan on Twitter spotted the video tags for the trailer, which suggests that Warwick will be getting a skin with a "PROJECT: Warwick" tag.
Another sleuth thought they'd found a symbol relating to Warwick in the video itself, and tweeted a screenshot to share their thoughts.

While not a lot is shown in the trailer, it does give players a brief taste of what to expect with what is gearing up to be a lineup of incredible skins for the heroes.
