From the creator:
What’s a king to a god?
Riot Games introduce a brand new playable character into their hugely popular League of Legends online community last week and we had the pleasure of working with them to create an animation showcasing the release of the mighty God Mode Lee Sin.
We decided that the only opponent worthy of Lee Sin’s god-like powers would be nature itself, here embodied by fearsome elemental rock adversaries. Set against a desolate, primitive environment, Lee will crush all that cross his path.
