Meet 2XKO’s newest champion Braum, plus first details on PS5 demo starting August 8 – PlayStation.Blog

Hello everyone! I’m Shaun “Unconkable” Rivera, Game Director of 2XKO. 2XKO is our new free-to-play team-based battle royale featuring champions from League of Legends, launching in 2025. Battle solo or with friends in intense 2v2 battles and master powerful abilities, supports, and combos to defeat your enemies.

Our team is led by Evolution Founders Tom and Tony Cannon at Riot Games—the studio behind League of Legends and Valorant—and includes developers with deep ties to the fighting game community, including former pro players, creators, and tournament organizers.

2XKO is currently in development. We’ve just revealed a new champion and announced Alpha Lab, the game’s first home play test. Register for a chance to play starting August 8.

Meet Braum, the Heart of the Freljord

2XKO’s newest playable character is Braum, a beloved hero with big biceps and an even bigger heart. He joins a roster of previously reimagined League of Legends champions, including Ahri, Yasuo, Ekko, Darius, and Illaoi.

Since 2v2 combat and playing with friends is at the core of 2XKO gameplay, the development team really wanted to design a champion that could thrive as a support character. Braum’s protective abilities make any pairing shine.

Braum’s design focuses on his massive shield, which was once an unbreakable door to an ancient treasure. With it, he protects his allies from damage. Braum excels at disrupting opponents and blocking their attacks, creating space for his teammates to unleash devastating combos.

Defense is key to Braum’s gameplay design, but he still has strong offensive options. He gains a unique buff called Unbreakable when he lands certain abilities, which coats Braum’s shield with ice and makes his special attacks deal more damage.

His kit also introduces a unique freeze mechanic to 2XKO. By activating the shield spell, Braum can gain additional armor and prevent opponents from being frozen.

Braum’s warm and infectious personality fosters friendships with poros – magical creatures from the frozen Freljord, Braum’s homeland.

Braum’s little friends are always ready to support him in any way they can, be it flying in the air to stop enemies from running away, or grouping together to form a giant furball that deals tons of damage.
