League of Legends has been going strong for more than ten years. Launching in 2009, the MOBA has certified itself as one of the giants in the video games industry. One of the reasons this is the case is that the Riot Games' title is always updated with new content via its preseasons and subsequently, seasons.

Prior to seasons getting underway, the developers take the time to implement preseasons. Here, players can begin getting acclimated to everything that's new for the upcoming year. Some of these preseasons tend to be drastic, introducing a wide array of changes that take some time to get used to. However, for Season 13, players won't have to worry about relearning the game completely, although it'll still be a major change.


That being said, here's when the League of Legends Preseason 2023 starts.
