Gangplank will return as the Bilgewater event comes close to ending. Many players believed that Gangplank would never return but as Riot says “what is dread may never die and Gangplank returns to reclaim what he believes to be rightfully his” this is wonderful news the only thing that has changed, is Gangplank had one limb replaced because he lost one when his ship went down.
Riot has also stated that you can unlock a free Gangplank skin depicting the pirate from before the Bilgewater events and all you need to do is own the champion, and play a full matchmade game with him and if you have already done so, during the event and you will also receive the free skin.
The base Gangplank skin has been changed to reflect the aftermath of Miss Fortune’s scheme the Captain Gangplank skin is the perfect way to commemorate the way our captain looked before Bilgewater.
With Gangplank returning and the conclusion of the Bilgewater drawing closer the end of the in-game event also draws closer to an end. Make sure to login and play to get your free Captain Gangplank skin and to acquire all of your Bilgewater spoils before August 10th, at 2:00 AM PDT.
