This is Ground Control to Major Molediver! Leave behind Rise of the Elements if you dare, and get ready to float, fly, and battle in a totally awesome way, because a new set is touching down today. Want to hear the thoughts behind this galactic takeover? Don't miss the /dev post over here!
Galaxies lands in TFT on March 17th at 11:00 AM (PT), and will be around to explore the cosmos until July 7th at 11:00 AM (PT). The start of a new set means the beginning of a new season, and with it comes all the Little Legends, Arena Skins, and Battle Pass shenanigans your star-crossed heart could want. Get ready to blast off head first, because it's time to head into the deep space of Galaxies 2020.
A Whole New Battle Pass
What's better than exploring the mysteries of the universe? Getting rewarded for it, of course! There's so much changing we had to make a whole other article for it! If you're wondering what happened to the Orb of Enlightenment or what's new in the Hub, be sure to check out the Battle Pass FAQ for Galaxies 2020.
The Galaxies Mechanic
You didn't think the name was just for show did you? When we say Galaxies, we mean it. Plural. Putting the "s" right there in the cosmos. As you play, you may notice the carousel looks a little different. Whether it's a realm full of Neeko's Help or some planet-sized Little Legends, the universe is in a constant state of flux. Want to know what star systems you could encounter? Keep a careful watch on the Patch Notes.
Origins and Classes
Origins and Classes represent all the wonder (and chaos) the universe has to offer, and Set 3 is bursting at the constellations with unique champion interactions. From Major and Minor Origins and three distinct Classes, to some champs in a galaxy all their own, we've made a quick and easy reference guide if you're ever at a loss when planning your team compositions, and be sure to watch the video above for the tl;dr on everything coming with this star-studded Set.
All allies heal for 10% (2) / 20% (4) / 40% (6) of the damage they deal.
All allies gain 10% (2) / 35% (4) / 75% (6) attack speed every 4 seconds.
|Cybernetics||Cybernetic champs with an item gain 30 attack damage and 300 HP (3) / 75 AD and 750 HP (6).|

|Star Guardians||Whenever a Star Guardian casts a spell, they distribute 20 (3) / 30 (6) mana among all other Star Guardians.|
|Mech Pilots*||At the start of combat, three random Mech Pilots are merged into a Super-Mech until it dies (3).|
Space Pirates have a 50% chance to drop 1G (2), and 10% chance to drop an item (4), whenever a Space Pirate lands a killing blow.
Valkyrie attacks and spells always crit targets below 50% health (2).
|Void||Champions of the Void deal True Damage (2).|
There's a 25% (3) / 50% (6) chance for Blademasters to attack two extra times.
Every fourth Blaster attack fires two (2) / five (4) additional attacks.
Infiltrators gain 60% Attack Speed for the first 8 seconds of combat (2) and are refreshed on takedown (4).

Giant. Robots. What more is there to say?! Well, a lot, actually! Mech Pilots bring a whole new mechanic to TFT. When you have 3 of Mech Pilots in play, they're bonus allows them to fuse into one super robot, combining the Health, Attack Damage, and bonus Spell Power of all its pilots. Other factors, like Attack Speed and Magic Resistance, copy the highest stat from whichever champion excels in that area. This mecha marvel even has its own special ability (besides being a big ol' robot of course).
This unique Utility Class is out for one thing: cold, hard coins. Even in space money talks, and yours can say some pretty game-changing things to Gangplank and Miss Fortune. So long as you have a Mercenary on the Bench, your shop has a 10% chance of the 5th slot holding an upgrade for your Mercenary! Once you've shelled out the 6G needed to purchase the upgrade for a given Merc, all future copies of that champion will also be upgraded. Let's face it! Some extra firepower? Totally worth the gold.
Starship: A Class All Its Own
Okay, so sometimes a champion is in a class all their own, and Aurelion Sol just so happens to be a first-class Starship (as well as being a bit of a Rebel). This stardust crusader doesn't join the fray, but rather he flies around the battlefield launching smaller fighters at his enemies so long as he remains in play. What'd you expect from the Star Forger himself, am I right?
You didn't think we'd forgotten about these little space-age cuties, did you? Three new Little Legends are taking the stellar spotlight. You can purchase a Cosmic Companions Egg for 490 RP, or select a bundle with your favorite Cosmic Companion and an Icon for 790 RP. Remember, you can bundle up as well (5 Cosmic Companion Eggs for 2450 RP or get 10 for 4900 RP and you'll get an extra Egg for free).
|Cosmic Squink||Cosmic Abyssia||Cosmic Starmaw|
|Odyssey Squink||Darkin Abyssia||Dreadnova Starmaw|
|Dreadnova Squink||Galaxy Slater Abyssia||Galaxy Slayer Starmaw|
|Fruity Tooty Squink||Willowbark Abyssia||Goo Starmaw|
|Sugarcone Squink||Calcite Abyssia||Orcus Starmaw|
When you're journeying into the cosmic unknown, you might as well do so in style. Little Legends have been an integral part of TFT from the beginning, and now you can customize the damage they deal to your opponent. Much like the Little Legends themselves, they come in tiers of increasing awesomeness, so put those particles to good use! Booms are currently only available through the Battle Pass, so click to see what levels will grant you some explosive effects!
From Black Holes to Supernovas, now even your Arena can rock some cosmic customization. You can buy these 3 for 1380 RP each, but you can also earn some unique skins through the Battle Pass as well.
