3.7 million viewers can’t be wrong: this LoL cinematic is the shit

Wednesday, 23rd July 2014 06:12 GMT By Brenna Hillier

League of Legends boasts a colourful cast of characters, all of whom are admirably well-equipped to beat the living shit out of each other – which is what they do in this new cinematic.

Called A New Dawn, LoL’s latest cinematic trailer gets you closer to the action than the usual MOBA perspective allows.

Fans have strong opinions as to which of these champions would really win in a battle like this, but regardless of how this match line-up would fare, it’s super cool to see powers and abilities you recognise being used.

MOBAs are kind of hard to sell just with gameplay footage, because it doesn’t convey the intricate strategic dance behind all the explosions and what not. Cinematic trailers like thislure newbies in with characters they’d like to play as; that’s probably why Gearbox produced a similar trailer for Battleborn.

    Wow yeah, look at that. All those… cool… character designs just fighting for no apparent reason. If this was released ten years ago I would probably think this was the best thing ever. Or, well, at least one of the best videos that week. Maybe.

    @Calistarius There is a reason. They are fighting for Summoner’s Rift. (You can see it at the end too)

    @Erthazus They fight for their own reasons. Not for Summoner’s Rift.
