Riot Games has posted a new blog to lay out details of a new game mode called Nexus Blitz. Nexus Blitz will be part of the new Experimental Modes program that will see various new ways to play crop up a couple times per year. Experimental Modes program allows players to test new ways to play and allows devs a chance to "aggressively patch" before bringing it into the full game.

Nexus Blitz matches last about 15 minutes "that emphasizes exciting and surprising moments over intense competition, while still rewarding the skills you've learned from other League modes".

In Nexus Blitz, each team consists of a duo jungle in close proximity to three laners. The compact map makes for constant action, and a roulette of new, unexpected events amplifies the frenzy even more.

Events are map-wide, mayhem-inducing scenarios that kick off every few minutes, granting powerful rewards to the team that wins. Some events draw from familiar game experiences that many players will instantly get, and others are more unexpected. Both kinds should make for unpredictable and memorable plays and fights: examples include King of the Hill, Push the Payload, the closing circle of death from Battle Royale games, and so on. If we take Nexus Blitz past alpha, we’ll expand the possible events and explore different versions (we’d love to start hearing your ideas!).
