From the appearance of the glowing weapon, fans presume that the mysterious character in the clip could either be Mordekaiser or Aatrox. The excitement and speculation heighten as the splash art for the champion is already floating about the Internet.

A few days ago, Riot Games also teased potential PROJECT splash art for Varus. While I can appreciate the slick but sinister futuristic presentation of the PROJECT: Mordekaiser/Aatrox, you just can’t beat the sick, sleek Metal Gear Raiden look of PROJECT: Varus.
Excited fans have even started “memeing” in the comment sections:
“Imagine being turned into Machine, but ur hair still silky smooth.”
“DOKTOR, TURN OFF MY ATTACK SPEED INHIBITORS!”
Compared with other skin productions in League of Legends, the PROJECT skins lines, in particular, have always been highly anticipated by the playerbase, with PROJECT: Vayne being one of the most popular skins of all time. As for a champion like Varus, he does see a high pick/ban rate in professional tournaments, but much less so in casual and ranked play. Hopefully, this upcoming PROJECT skin line will give him some love to have a go in the spotlight, at least for some time.
Any other news regarding other potential champions included in this skin line has yet to be announced by Riot. So far, it has certainly been an active year for League of Legends, with tons of exciting in-game events, new champions and skin lines, and even a Netflix series on the horizon. There’s no doubt that this upcoming PROJECT skin line won’t disappoint.
