Riot surprises everyone today with the new League of Legends cinematic, A New Dawn. One without Ryze running away from everything, even. Instead, we now have Ahri, who spends most of the six-minute video running around while looking appropriately terrified of all the sharp objects being thrown around. Throughout her brief journey, a whole mess of champions join the fray, shooting and gutting each other in the name of glory.
With a title like A New Dawn, you can bet Leona makes an appearance, flexing her badass support muscles. Katarina seems to be the only recurring champ this time around, and she actually looks considerably more normal than when we last saw her in A Twist of Fate. The same can't really be said about Ahri's face and somewhat disproportionate head.
Draven finally gets the spotlight as well, alongside his brother Darius, but Rengar and Nautilus really steal the show. Actually, Graves is pretty awesome too.
Hell, I can't decide. Just watch the video and see for yourself.
Here are the champions shown, more or less in order:
I'm still hoping to see Thresh in one of these cinematics in the near future.
