League of Legends has always created a cinematic anthem to usher in the beginning of the new ranked season, and 2023 is no exception. After the popularity and adoration created for the 2022 anthem, "The Call," there were a lot of expectations for the 2023 season.

The 2023 anthem is called the "Brink of Infinity," signaling the new season as a chance to break beyond where you have been on the ranked ladder and progress further.
Who does it feature?
Interestingly, the new anthem does not feature any in-game champions or characters. There is a voice over throughout the video, but neither a song nor the suggestion of champions. There are soundbites of Europe’s caster Quickshot calling matches, but no imagery of these matches.

For many fans, this is going to come as a huge surprise. Many fans speculated about an appearance from Qiyana, Aatrox, and others. However, the art style is as beautiful as ever. The assumed character voice over is powerful when stating, "I will become what I must… because I can," and it's exciting for opening the new season.

What should you look out for?
The cinematics are breathtaking. Every little detail for each scene was clearly thought about as the imagery moves between scenes from following a small butterfly across aspects of the Rift. These include the red team’s Nexus, the river, and parts of the jungle.

So with a lack of champions present, what should you look out for? Well, you can enjoy the art style of Riot Games. The artists clearly put a lot of thought into the smaller details. There is also the slogan at the end to pay attention to. It states, "Make your mark," which is something we have been seeing across socials with the start of the 2023 season.
