League of Legends patch 8.16: Nexus Blitz and Cosmic Skins

League of Legends’ next big content patch is 8.16, introducing Nexus Blitz. Patch 8.16 is a smaller update, part of Riot’s bi-monthly alternating patch schedule, so at the moment we’re a little light on balance changes, although there’s plenty of new skins to take a look at, as well as that fancy new “experimental” game mode. 

Nexus Blitz is a brand new League of Legends game mode. It’s still early in development, so could be subject to a lot of change, but at the moment it seems that it’s a fast-paced mode that promotes aggressive play around important in-game events (and the rewards they offer).

Want in? You’ll need the best League of Legends champions.

This patch also contains five brand-new skins. There’s the Cosmic line, with Ashe, Lulu, and Xin Zhao all looking to the heavens, but also a new Mecha skin for Aurelion Sol (that looks a lot like Pokémon’s Rayquaza). Elsewhere, Braum goes bad, with a new Mafia skin. Have a look below for all the information we’ve got, straight from the PBE.

LoL Patch 8.16 Release Date And Downtime

We don’t know the exact release date for patch 8.16 yet, but the schedule is bi-weekly so expect it on Wednesday August 15. We’ll update when Riot do, but keep an eye on the server maintenance page for the latest updates.
