Super Evil Megacorp has released the latest major update for Vainglory on Wednesday October 11th.
The world’s leading mobile MOBA is approaching the Vainglory World Championships, taking place at the Kallang Theatre in Singapore, December 14th-17th.
To celebrate the kick-off of the Autumn season, Update 2.9 brings in festive skins and a brand-new hero.
The latest addition to the Vainglory roster, Churnwalker is a ranged hero with a hook skill-shot that can drag enemies towards him and an ultimate that can take him closer to opponents and stun chained enemies.
On the aesthetic side of things, Baptiste is getting a “Scarecrow” skin, and a Baron is receiving a “Fly or Die” Baron skin that sees the hero converting into a helicopter while sprinting and Jump Jetting.
Meanwhile, a trio of Autumn Moon festival-themed skins are arriving for Lyra, “Moon Queen”, “Moon Empress” and “Moon Goddess”.
Update 2.9 also includes a range of hero and item balancing, changes to vision, two new items and various bug fixes. Full patch notes can be found on the Vainglory blog.
