A new form of expansion will be rolled out in Legends of Runeterra

In this early 2022 Roadmap map, Riot Games are changing the definition of “expansions” in Legends of Runeterra. There will be no grouping releases by “sets” like previous releases – i.e. Call of the Mountain, Empires of the Ascended, and Beyond the Bandlewood were all “sets” broken into 3 “expansion” releases revolving primarily around the newest region added to the game.

Expansions will be now standalone releases that expand content for both PvP and PvE. They believe that this allows more freedom to explore adding new champions and Storyful PvE adventures on a more regular basis.

Another major update is coming to the game which will allow champions to have skills from all other regions. For example, adding Jhin to your deck allows you to add cards with skills from all other regions. Jhin has been teased as the first Runeterra champion.
