A new League of Legends login screen will soon grace players' clients with High Noon Lucian itching to draw his weapons in a Wild West showdown.

The High Noon skin for the dual-wielding marksman that's showcased in the new login cinematic uploaded to YouTube by frostyNinja is just one of the three High Noon skins that was unveiled not long ago. After teasing the skins with emails that were sent out to players and previewed cosmetics for Lucian, Thresh, and Urgot, Riot Games fully unveiled the three new skins that join Yasuo in the High Noon set. The reveal trailer for the High Noon 2018 skins showed both Lucian's and Thresh's, two champions that are rivals in the League of Legends universe, but Urgot's wasn't anywhere to be seen at the time.

Since they were unveiled, the skins have been added to the PBE servers for testing before they become available for everyone to purchase. High Noon Lucian's is the most expensive of the three, something that players might've expected seeing how his was more prominently shown during the reveal trailer and now through the login animation. His skin is 1820 RP while the other two skins for Thresh and Urgot are 1350 RP each, though those numbers are subject to change.

PBE posts for each of the skins were shared alongside the turnarounds to see what the skins look like, all of those seen below. The login theme is expected to go live on players' clients in the coming weeks.
