In a minute and about a half's worth of video clip, everyone witnessed and heard the voice of the imprisoned Sylas, a Demacian who has been imprisoned for 15 years. From his tone alone, we can already tell that this champion's drive to join the League is mainly from hatred and revenge.

The reveal shows Sylas in action on the rift, highlighting the champion's ultimate ability.

Hijack lets you imitate an enemy's ultimate for your own use. Now that's like giving your foes a taste of their own medicine!

We've already had enough of physical imitation with the very bubbly Neeko which was released a few months ago, but Sylas' Hijack might just be the game changer we all need.

Sylas' other abilities include a chained passive (Petricite Burst), a basic attack using his shackles with an added slow effect (Chain Lash), a powerful strike with a slight heal (Kingslayer), and a dash and shield skill (Abscond / Abduct).

By the late game you can seize multiple ultimates in quick succession, using the enemy team’s own strength against them and bringing your revolution to a violent conclusion. In the end, they will be the ones who kneel.

Is this new champion broken or what? Tell us what you think!
