LoL creative directors share ‘timeless truths’ behind ‘Still Here’ cinematic

The long-awaited League of Legends 2024 Season cinematic is finally here, and it’s nothing short of spectacular. Titled “Still Here” after its accompanying song, the cinematic is a visual masterpiece that explores the rich lore of the League universe through three distinct periods, offering players a glimpse into the past, present, and potential future of Runeterra.

The film is divided into three scenes, each set in different eras of Runeterra, as the  creative directors of the video, Matt Costa and Anton Borkel, confirmed to Dot Esports during a recent interview. The first scene features Aatrox, Morgana, and her sister Kayle battling in Demacia’s past, approximately 1,000 years before the present. The second scene unfolds in the Freljord, showcasing Kindred, Tryndamere, and, in the last few seconds, Ashe, who joins the Barbarian King “shortly after they became Oathsworn.” The final scene propels us into a potential future in Ionia, where Yasuo is forced to confront his destiny through a vision sent to him by Kindred, who represents the twin essences of death.
