Riot Games has released a video trailer for its new League of Legends champion, Zeri, giving an insight into her abilities and gameplay.
In the 2-minute trailer, Zeri attempts to stop a gang from hurting an innocent bystander. However, when she tries to discharge electricity from her fingertips, she struggles to generate a charge, pausing for a few moments to calm herself before manifesting her electricity around her body. Interestingly, Zeri and the upcoming Valorant agent, Neon, look strikingly similar. Both are also voiced by Vanille Velasquez, a Filipino voice actress.
The latest ADC (Attack Damage Carry) type champion, Zeri, is a Zaunite vigilante and freedom fighter who channels her emotions through magical lightning bursts that she uses in conjunction with a gun crafted by her mother.
What are the abilities of the new LoL champion Zeri?
Based on the video trailer, Zeri’s abilities will include:
- Firing off a linear skill shot of lightning
- Jumping over terrain
- Blasting with electricity (probably her ultimate)
- Some sort of shield (probaly her passive skill)
It can also be seen in the champion reveal trailer that her normal attack goes through the target’s body slightly, which seems to be an AOE auto-attack.
When is the release date of Zeri?
Zeri’s release will likely arrive in LoL patch 12.2 later in January 2022.
