We counted down all skins in 2021, and we are doing the same once again this year. Riot has some insane plans for skins in Season 12. We will get new skin lines, refreshers of old ones and completely new concepts.

So let's check out everything we know about skins in 2022 and what plans Riot has for their cash cow. Which skins are you most excited about this year?

Which Skins Have Been Released In 2022?

Starting 2022, we know that there are around 1.290 unique skins in League of Legends. This year, more skins will be added to the repertoire and many more champions will be receiving new and unique looks for League of Legends.

In 2021, the Arcana, Crystal and Withered Rose, as well as the Café Cuties skins were brand new. What fun and interesting thematics will we be receiving in 2022?

How Many Skins Will Riot Release in 2022?

In 2021, we received almost 140 skins, the same as in 2020, which is why we believe that in 2022, we will once again be getting around 130 or 140 skins! With each patch being released almost every 2 weeks and there being at least 2 or more skins added each patch, we can hope for a lot of new looks.

From the Riot Season 2022 event, we know that there will be returning skin lines, as well as whole new thematics which will hit the rift this year, so what are you most excited about?

Which Prestige Skins Have Been Released in 2022?

Prestige skins will once again be making a comeback in 2022. Riot has stated that they will be buffing their time and effort into making these skins more than fancy gold chroma's with special VFX and animations. These are the prestige skins of 2022:

How Will Prestige Skins Change in 2022?

Prestige Skins are going to be a bit different in 2022 and onward. During the Season 2022 live stream, Belissimoh, Product Lead of Personalization and Events in League of Legends, explained that they will be working to create a better experience for players.

In 2022, prestige points will be retired, as well as gemstones – another currency used to buy/craft rare skins and cosmetics in League of Legends. Both currencies will be shifting to mythic essence.

With this mythic essence, players will be able to purchase rare cosmetics in the new mythic shop which will have rotating goods. Oh, and two different types of skins.

What Are the Two Types of Skins Available in the New Mythic Shop?

Since players did not think that Hextech skins were that special or unique, Riot has decided to create 'seasonal mythics' which will have a rotating thematic for unique skins in the mythic shop each year. In 2022, Riot will develop Ashen Knights skins for the mythic shop.

You'll also be able to pick up older prestige skins, so if you forgot to play during a specific time period and missed your chance to pick up a prestige Arcade Caitlyn, you'll be able to get it through the mythic shop which will have a monthly rotation of prestige skins available.


What Skins Will We Receive in 2022?

In 2021, we received so many new skins, but we're expecting to get a lot more in 2022. New thematics will hit the rift, as well as the return of old ones. Some champions are also in desperate need of skins and Riot is going to give them some new skins in 2022.

Which Champions Will Receive Skins in 2022?

The champions receiving skins in 2022 are:

  • Gangplank
  • Fiddlesticks
  • Rek'Sai
  • Trundle
  • Rell
  • Orianna
  • Heimderdinger

Fiddlesticks was supposed to get a skin in 2021, but Riot had to push his new skin back, which is why he is on the list once again this year.

Which Thematics Will Riot Make Skins for in 2022?

Riot has stated that they will be revisiting some of the more popular skin lines this year:

  • Bee Skins
  • Star Guardian
  • High Noon

But Riot is also going to take a look at an old stand-alone skin and re-imagine it and revamp it as a whole new skin line. The Battle Bunny skin, which was previously a Riven-only skin, will be getting some love this year and Riot will release the Anima Squad skins. Those aren't the only new skin themes they're working on though. Monster Tamers, which won third place in the vote for new skin thematics in 2021, will also hit the Rift in 2022.

Riot also stated that they want to revamp an old skin thematic to bring it up to par with skins in 2022. These are the choices for updated skin thematics:

  • Gothic
  • Infernal
  • Arclight

Players can vote in the League of Legends client for which skin thematic they want revamped in 2022. If the thematic you voted for doesn't win, it could still be revamped at a later date.

That's everything about upcoming skins in 2022. We will continue to update this article, so you know which skins have been released thus far, which themes have been chosen and what champions received skins throughout the year!
