A new Legends of Runeterra Midset Video Update dropped yesterday, offering players a brief look at what's coming to the game in the near future. The seven-minute video offers information on the game's expansion system -- which changed back in August, reveals a new card type, and discusses events and seasonal tournaments. It also offers a brief roadmap near the end.

The next expansion, Monuments of Power, arrives in just two weeks and introduces the new Landmark card type. The cards, inspired by the landmarks in League of Legends, will introduce new mechanics and focus on lore. The game's first landmark will be Vaults of Helia which sacrifices the strongest unit in a hand to pull another from the deck that costs one more. Since landmarks aren't normal unit cards and simply hang out with the hand generating effects, only certain cards will be able to attack them.

A completely new event is being introduced as well. This event will improve on the Sprit Blossom event, fixing some of the things that players found difficulty with in the previous iteration. Unfortunately, the dev team didn't feel ready to announce the new event's theme or arrival date. We just know it's coming "soon".

Other important topics covered in the video include the arrival of spectator mode, card cosmetics, as well as seasonal tournaments. Watch the video below for more information on all of that, plus the roadmap at the end.
