Riot Games has released a League of Legends cinematic titled A New Dawn which is already receiving a great reaction by fans. While the imagining of the teamfight is as creative as the past cinematics, the depicted combat is uncharacteristically brutal. League of Legends is a multiplayer online battle area type game from Riot Games, though that description hardly encapsules the design and complexity of the gameplay.

Day breaks over a landscape consecrated by blood and steel. A battle begins as a new dawn rises.

A behind the scenes video also gives more insight into the making of A New Dawn.

Following A Twist of Fate, we created A New Dawn to explore fleshed-out champion interpretations and brutal team fights in ways they’ve never been seen before.

Check out the behind-the-scenes video below for a look at how we tapped into character design, music, animation, and even classic Foley techniques to showcase some of your favorite champions slugging it out for blood, guts, and glory.

League of Legends is free to download though champion characters are locked behind a paywall/grindwall. Each week for one week, 10 champions enter free rotation during which players can use any of those characters for free.
