Vel'Koz will be joining League of Legends soon, and today, Riot has released a trailer for the Void creature, showing off his voice and giving us a glimpse of his demeanor. Yes, a tentacle creature can have a demeanor. Overall, he's kind of evil, and kills people in his pursuit of knowledge.
Dubbed "First Contact," this teaser, Vel'Koz comments on his thirst for knowledge as he approaches an unsuspecting man and a relic. Rather than take the relic, however, he seems to absorb the man -- take his mind, even. Sounds like an overall nice Void monster, right?
The music in the background isn't really what we're used to hearing as far as champ themes go, but it is somewhat reminiscent of Crystal Method's Lucian theme. Anyway, take a look and have a listen.
Previously, Riot also released the splash art for Battlecast Vel'Kos, the alternate release skin. It looks pretty great, but many League players have been more distracted by a possible mystery figure being teased in the background.
Earlier today, the new Featured Gameplay Mode "Hexakill" also went live.
