Update (February 1st 2022): Riot KDan, skins sound designer on League of Legends at Riot Games, posted an update on Twitter showing off Firelight Ekko’s new features including fresh sound effects:
Firelight Ekko is now on the PBE (Public Beta Environment) for players to test out.
Update (December 15th 2021): Riot has delayed the recently announced Firelight Ekko skin following criticism from parts of the League of Legends community.
Riot Katana said in an update on Reddit: “We completely agree that SFX are a standard and expected part of an Epic (1350) skin, and leaving them out was an unfortunate mistake on our part due to a miscommunication internally. While we do everything we can to avoid delaying content, we’re going to hold off from shipping this skin for a few patches to work on adding new SFX. This also means the skin will come off of PBE for now.”
Riot will also be including a hoverboard and mask Homeguard animation to go live with the new SFX when it’s ready.
