The new League of Legends character trailer for Briar
The latest League of Legends Briar trailer has us eagerly anticipating the arrival of Arcane season 2, Riot Games’ Netflix-esque anime series and the next step in the world’s biggest esports game’s expanding foray into high-quality competitive content. The support character’s potential is immediately apparent in this stunning trailer, which showcases Briar herself alongside the gorgeous, overgrown world she inhabits.
Arcane season 2 looks every bit as visually stunning as the first, and Riot’s ongoing collaboration with animation studio Fortiche looks to be paying dividends. The animation style used in the trailer, with its paper cut-outs giving it almost a look reminiscent of Into the Spiderverse, adds to the overall appeal.
We’ve already seen a glimpse of Briar’s support kit in the Runes Reforged 5.22 update, but the new character trailer dives into her design, courtesy of a blog by lead concept artist Sunny Pandita. It also serves as a sterling advertisement for the upcoming second season of Arcane, which you’ll be able to start watching in early September.
League of Legends is definitely back on track after the disappointing season cinematic released in early January. In-client teasers and the ongoing point-and-click minigame have both served to further pique my interest in Briar’s character.
It’s clear that the ongoing support given to the game’s creative teams is paying off in exceptional content. Arcane season 1 was a visual feast, and it looks like season 2 will follow suit. Whether or not it’ll reignite my desire to play the game remains to be seen, but I’ll certainly be eager to see what the Arcane crew cooks up next.
