League of Legends 13.5 Patch Notes: Release Date, Champion Changes And New Skins

Out of this world

League of Legends fourth scheduled update of 2023 (and season 13) comes in the form of patch 13.5, which will arrive at the end of January.

In the last patch, update 13.4, a number of champions known for the tanky playstyle have received a buff, while some Junglers saw some nerfs.

After a number of radical changes in recent patches, we can expect this patch to continue the work to adjust and balance champions on the rift, including a few who have yet to be touched this season. We're also getting a new line of skins called 'Broken Convenant'!

Here’s what’s new in update 13.5 for LoL.

Release Date

Patch update 13.5 will arrive on Wednesday 8th of March 2023.

Here’s roughly when you can expect the update to roll out:

  • 3 am PT (NA servers)
  • 5 am GMT (EUW servers)
  • 3 am CET (EUNE servers)
