League of Legends Patch Adds New Champion, Game Mode & More

Leauge of Legend‘s update 7.23 adds new Champion Zoe to the game, as well as a new game mode, and more.

Here’s Zoe’s character description:

Don’t be fooled by her childish appearance—Zoe is an ancient being, a cosmic messenger of Targon. When the Aspect of Twilight appears, she warps reality. Despite all this power, she often shirks her duties in favor of blowing bubbles and playing tricks on unsuspecting mortals. One can never be sure of what she’s really aiming for… other than her own amusement.

The new Overcharge mode is a 3v3 “marksman-only deathmatch,” which the aim of the game being to destroy “charge bots” in an attempt to overcharge your team, issuing higher movement, increased invulnerability and additional points for killing champions.

For the full list of bug fixes, see below:

– Made several fixes for issues that occurred if players left their client open for extremely long periods of time
