Riot is introducing a sixth player to League of Legends and the Hexakill along with it.

Previously matches have featured five players. The new update will go live on February 20th.

“For the next upcoming Featured Gameplay Mode, five to a team just wasn’t enough. We’re adding a sixth champ to each side on Summoner’s Rift. Same rules, same map, more champions,” said Riot in a blog post.

“Double junglers, roaming supports and six man wombo combos are all on the table for this new mode. Experiment with team comps and discover new metas as you seek to hear the ultimate announcement, “Hexakill.””
