League of Legends is to receive another new update from Riot Games, dubbed ‘The preseason update’, which looks to tweak the game’s champions, jungle, items and areas. Get the details below.

Destructoid reports that Riot Games announced the updated and then took to Reddit to participate in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session to answer any questions fans had about the new changes.

The main aim of the update is to add more variety to the game via new items, which in turn will lead to varying play styles. Items will also transform once players fulfil set criteria, giving rise to even more expansion. For example, spending mana on weapons will make them evolve into new, more powerful versions.

There is a massive list of updates included, and you can check them all out over at Destructoid’s handy overview.

What do you make of these changes? Will they make you keep coming back for more League of Legends fun? Let us know below.

    Correction. You do not expend mana, but instead, the Archangel Staff item has it so that every time you use an ability or expend mana, your maximum mana pool increases by 4 to a cap of 750 maximum mana gained for this one item. Once maximum mana gain is achieved, then it will upgrade. This is the only instance in which an item does this. Not all items have dynamic upgrades. Most item upgrades are bought, not upgraded automatically via met criteria.
