The arrival of the Episode 3 is imminent and with it, a brand new Agent. Riot Games' YouTube channel has unveiled a video of KAY/O, a new robotic initiator.
According to the video and the developers' description, KAY/O excels at hunting Radiants. The video shows us some of his abilities without explaining their functions. The video shows KAY/O throwing a combat knife and various grenade-like projectiles.
In terms of lore, the Agent seems to have a grudge against all radiants, but has a special relationship with Reyna. We also see a world in ruins, in a way reminiscent of Terminator. Did the Radiants destroy the world and KAY/O wants to destroy them? Does he go back in time to prevent this from happening, or does he travel between dimensions as we saw in the previous cinematic?
[UPDATE] We have tested KAY/O and been able to use all his abilities in combat. Read our guide to master KAY/O.
As for the Agent's abilities, we already have descriptions, although we will have to wait until we play KAY/O to understand the full implications:
Mandatory has been invited to try out KAY/O as a preview. We'll tell you much more as soon as tomorrow, in the afternoon!
