Riot announced a new set of Star Guardian skins for Ezreal, Ahri, Syndra, and Soraka. To celebrate this occasion, a new game mode called Invasion will be heading to the League of Legends PBE and summoners can only play the champions that have a Star Guardian skin in their closet.
Invasion is a 5 player PvE mode on a brand new series of maps. Form a squad of your favorite Star Guardians and, alongside your friends, defend the city from a series of monster attacks.
Map: Valoran City Park
Mode type: 5 player co-op battle
Win Condition: Defeat a series of invading space monsters, culminating in a large Boss Fight.
Each game is made up of a series of 7 different encounters, followed by a final Boss Fight against “The Big One”. Between each encounter, you’ll be given a flat amount of Gold and a Level, and will have time to purchase items. Whenever you’re ready to move on, apply a channeling mechanic on the large star in the center of the area. Once everyone is ready, you’ll begin the next fight.
Encounters come in four major varieties:
Invasion is the second PvE game mode after Doombots was introduced many years back. According to the teaser video for the Star Guardian skins, it is stated that the skins will be coming to the League of Legends live servers on September 7. Hopefully, the Invasion game mode will be included in the game as well.
