So far, there has been no information about specific changes that will occur on the map. Furthermore, Kingdom Laboratories warns that details may still change and official confirmation is scheduled for January 9th.
As of April 2023, Icebox has been missing from the rotation and Bind has returned to the game. Icebox has always been known for its unique and well-spaced horizontal locations, a complex center including pipe, kitchen, boiler and ramps. It is also the only map that presents “nests” which you can reach by using ziplines and planting the Spike.
Riot’s position on Icebox’s return
It is worth noting that, so far, Riot Games has not commented on the information. The absence of an official position increases speculation surrounding the veracity of these rumors.
