Check out the Patch 8.22 notes (be sure to check regional editions for slight variations!):
"Welcome to the last patch before preseason! It's been a relatively quiet couple of months, but 8.22 revs the gameplay engine back up with a few bigger changes (Pyke and Time Warp Tonic). Worlds has come to an end and the foundations for the next year of League are dropping in a few weeks, so gather your strength and make the final push toward your 2018 goals!"
Paul "Aether" Perscheid

Miscellaneous

  • Another handful of skin bios were added this cycle, including Ashen Lord Aurelion Sol, Shadowfire Kindred and more from the Infernal skin line, Praetorian Graves and Fiddlesticks, and more. Examples:

Praetorian Graves
"Unleashed upon the multiverse by imperfect Pulsefire technology, Graves is but one of a numberless horde of Praetorian marauders now plaguing spacetime. Its programming is unlike anything from any known past, present, or future-- each of its thoughts is so complex, it would take ten lifetimes for a human to comprehend.
Praetorian Fiddlesticks
"The Remembrancers' worst fears have been realized. Emerging from tears in the fabric of spacetime, hordes of faceless, robotic marauders appear across the multiverse, destroying everything in their path. Fiddlesticks is only a single unit in this endless invasion force, assimilating any technology it comes across, and eradicating all life."
