The last time fans got a taste for the hectic Nexus Blitz game mode was back in December of 2020. Players could access the game through the holidays, from December to January of 2021. This will be the third time the event has appeared in the game, its first back in 2018.

Nexus Blitz is a game mode with a whole new map and events that create constant battles on the field of play. Jungle camps are scattered in the small playing field and there are cannons that transport champions to different locations in a flash. The events include minigames like Scuttle Racing and King of the Hill. Many force opposing teams to fight and gain advantages in a short amount of time. King of the Hill creates a point on the map where players must stand, and keep the enemy from standing on, to generate points for their team. The winning team of these minigames gain buffs that increase combat statistics or add gold to their pockets.

The game mode even forces teams to end that game in a timely fashion. After a certain time in-game, both team’s Nexuses (Nexi?) leave their base and attack the other.

The limited-time event and more will be available with Patch 11.11 and end on June 28.
