Star Guardians Is Here For A Magical Summer Event

The Star Guardians event is here, courtesy of Riot Games, who are delivering a host of characters from League of Legends, Wild Rift, and Legends of Runeterra as skins and cosmetics. The Star Guardians subculture is a popular one in the LoL community, one which the team at Riot recognized, and wanted to do something cool with.  

“The last time we revisited Star Guardian, we really saw that our players loved it and engaged with it,” said Stephanie Bedford, Narrative Producer at Riot Games. “So we just really wanted to deliver on that…This is one of our most popular thematics that we have as an alt universe. Riot really views our alt universes as a really amazing medium for narrative expression and storytelling. So it’s not just cosmetics or a skin line to us, and we’re trying to create something that has depth, breadth, and player appeal.”

The Star Guardians are high school students entrusted with cosmic powers to defend their homes from terrifying threats. Riot released a “The Story So Far” timeline which tells the story of these girls, and the force known as the First Star picking guardians to defend humanity against the cosmos.

Currently, there are two legendary skins available, Kai’Sa and Akali, as well as some villainous additions to the cast in Star Nemesis Morgana and Fiddlesticks. Riot plans to introduce more in the coming days.
