The League of Legends Season 7 Championship skin was revealed in Tuesday’s Public Beta Environment update, which will be Championship Ashe.

A new summoner icon for the Championship Ashe skin has been added to the PBE. Championship skins are yearly releases by Riot Games, which are available for purchase through the Riot Store in the League of Legends client. Each year, Riot chooses one champion to get the Championship skin treatment, which becomes available for purchase around the time frame of the League of Legends World Championship. So far there have been five other championship skins: Riven for Season 2, Thresh for Season 3, Shyvana for Season 4, Kalista for Season 5, and Zed for Season 6.

For those players who have not been able to buy the previous Championship skins, all of the previous seasons’ skins will soon be available for purchase. Championship skins have so far come with custom recall animations, new models, spell, visual, and sound effects, and have been available for 975 RP ($5).

Starting last year, 25 percent of the revenue generated by the Championship skins have been added to the total prize pool for worlds. The prize pool more than doubled last year as a result, to more than $5 million.

A brand new chroma pack for the Primetime Draven skin has also been added to the PBE. With five new palette swaps available for owners of the skin, players can expect to buy the bundle of all five at a discount or a select number of them for 290 RP ($2).
