Super Evil Megacorp released Update 2.9 for Vainglory, the world’s leading mobile esport. Update 2.9 ushers in Churnwalker, a mysterious new hero whose ranged attacks keep opponents vulnerable throughout the match. Through abilities like Torment and Trespass, the new hero can also move towards unsuspecting victims and yank them towards him with ease.
Also, to celebrate the kick-off of Autumn season, a spooky “Scarecrow” Baptiste skin, as well as a “Fly or Die” Baron skin have arrived to the fold. Lyra celebrates the Autumn Moon festival in this update with three new skins: “Moon Queen,” “Moon Empress” and “Moon Goddess,” each with a unique robe and distinctive antlers.
