League of Legends is crossing over into PUBG Mobile. To celebrate the release of Riot Games and Netflix’s League of Legends animated series, Arcane, various characters and items from the Runeterra universe are making their way to the mobile battle royale game. The companies announced the crossover on Tuesday, with a trailer that showed PUBG Mobile characters with Arcane-style animation.

The collaboration will introduce characters, items, game modes, and locations from the Arcane and League of Legends universe into PUBG Mobile as part of the game’s next big content update. PUBG Mobile’s announcement doesn’t specify what these additions to the game will be, but based on the art it seems that Jinx, Vi, Jayce, and Caitlyn — who all seem to play important roles in Arcane — are headed to Erangel.

PUBG Mobile has seen many collaborations and crossovers in the past several years, from anime to K-Pop stars. However, League of Legends crossovers with other games are a little more rare. Riot’s games have crossed over with each other, but they haven’t moved into new gaming worlds for the most part before now.

All of this new Arcane content should arrive in PUBG Mobile with the game’s patch 1.7, and will begin on Nov. 16.
