With the TFT Fates Mid-Set update, Festival of Beasts, now live, all eyes are turned towards what Set 5 could potentially bring. We’ve got all the latest news, including leaked champions and traits, as well as a release date, right here.

TFT is just about to hit its second anniversary, and the celebrations are expected to be massive. In fact, they’re going to be so big that players are going to be treated to a whole new set by the time June 26 comes around.

TFT Set 5 is expected to come a bit earlier than that 2 year marker, and we already know a few details about what to expect. Here’s what you need to know, from the champions and traits already teased, to the official release date, and more.

TFT Set 5: Reckoning champions & traits

TFT Set 5, named Reckoning, has been described as the “most dramatic set yet.” TFT designer TJ ‘GreenTeej’ Bourus really sold it that way at the “TFT in 2021” reveal early in January.

“Corruption is nigh, and the balance between good and evil has tilted. The rising tension could yield great consequence in the convergence, so we’ll need you to restore the balance,” he said.

Segment begins at 2:04.

There are some champions we know are coming though based on that reveal, as well as the March dev blog. These include:

  • Aatrox (Justicar skin)
  • Aurelion Sol
  • Ashe (Fae Dragon skin)
  • Darius (God King skin)
  • Garen (God King skin)
  • Gragas
  • Kayle (Viridian skin)
  • Lux
  • Morgana (Coven skin)
  • Nautilus (Warden skin)
  • Riven (Dawnbringer skin)
  • Shyvana
  • Teemo (Little Devil skin)
  • Udyr
  • Viego (base skin)
  • Volibear (The Thousand-Pierced Bear skin)
  • Yasuo (Nightbringer skin)

Darius and Garen are the two central units of the “Good vs Evil” set — fitting given they’re the poster boys for Demacia and Noxus. They’ll be extra powerful against opposing forces, so be sure to recruit one.

The addition of Viego could be primed for more characters in Ruined King ⁠— the first game developed under Riot Forge ⁠— to join the set too.

That’d mean the potential return of: Ahri, Braum, Pyke, Illaoi, Miss Fortune, Thresh, Yasuo, Gangplank, Maokai, Senna, Lucian, and Ryze. All of these champions feature in Ruined King, and have all been a part of the TFT roster in previous sets.

Riot have also revealed the first trait, Draconic. Each round with the trait active will add an egg to your bench, hatching into a Draconic champion to put on your board, or something else.

Viego’s addition in TFT Set 5 is a big hint towards what champions could be added, including Pyke, Illaoi, and Thresh.

When is TFT Set 5: Reckoning releasing?

TFT Set 5 is locked in to release on April 28, 2021. The Fates II Pass is set to expire at that time, and it lines up perfectly with the launch of TFT patch 11.9.

There’s still some time left to grind Fates, but once TFT patch 11.9 rolls around, the set will be retired for the time being. One can hope it may return in a new game mode ⁠— something Riot has planned for 2021 with Labs.
