Aurelion Sol is the League of Legends champion who was nearly forgotten in time.
But, Riot never forgets. The champion will be receiving his very own CGU early in the 2023 season.
A CGU completely upgrades most elements of a champion and the upgrades to Aurelion Sol will once again make him a viable champion.
With new abilities, animations, and even some updated lore, the new Aurelion Sol is ready to traverse the stars.
So, let's look at what players should expect from the new Aurelion Sol CGU coming to League of Legends this year.
