New FREE Legendary! S1MPLE joins Raid Shadow Legends


Today, it was announced by Natus Vincere (NaVi) that Oleksandr “S1mple” Kostyliev, a notorious CSGO player will be joining Raid: Shadow Legends as a new legendary champion!

Much like Ninja, s1mples character ‘Aleksander the Sharpshooter’ will be completely free to both new and existing players on the 7th day of gameplay in a 2 month period.

S1mple has led his CSGO squad NaVi to victory many times and is second to none in terms of his skill and precision, to celebrate this, S1mple has worked closely with Plarium to bring the NaVi sharpshooter to life within Raid: Shadow Legends.

Sergey Bragilevskiy, Plarium’s director of growth spoke out about the announcement saying:

“we are thrilled to have one of the greatest CS:GO players of all time become his own Legendary Champion in RAID shadow legends. We spent significant time with S1mple to determine how he envisions himself in the world of RAID and we cannot wait for fans to get a chance to add him to their roster.”

S1mple will be a legendary High Elves champion with a lot of his abilities created very similar to his CSGO gameplay. From tomorrow the 1st of December, all you will have to do Is play for 7 Days across 2 months, so realistically the earliest you can obtain him is the 8th December, and that’s all, just like Ninja he is completely free for all players to obtain.

This is what S1mple has to say about becoming a new legendary champion in Riad: Shadow Legends;

“It’s been an incredible experience seeing myself become a RAID: Shadow Legends champion, especially one that is built to symbolize my talents in CS:GO. I can’t wait for my fans to get a chance to add this character to their team and always hit their marks!”

I know we’re very excited to see how S1mple has been implemented into the game, what about you? Do you like that Plarium has been introducing real-life gamers into the game? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

    seems dumb to add people that have nothing to do with the game or genre. free lego.’s is great but how about something relevant the game like HH or ash. or maybe slipknot,gwar or the misfits. some characters ya know.

      and some ppl must complain, no matter what

      They obviously want his fan base to check out the game….it’s extremely obvious.

      How many more players will raid get from getting a hellhades champion? Zero because everyone who watched hellhades plays the game.

      I would absolutely love to see the members of Gwar in the game. Over 30 years of characters to choose from, heck they could form their own faction!

    its to widen there player base giving CSGO players a reason to look at raid thats it

      Exactly! it’s a very good thing for the community! Ninja brought a lot of new players to the game and we got an amazing champion! win win!

    I look forward to his stream where he has no idea how to play Raid.

  6. DeaKoN December 1, 2021 at 10:03 am

    his gearset is a little mixed, he needs to hit hard to make any real sense i reckon

  7. Bies December 1, 2021 at 10:04 am

    I missed Ninja event(started playing recently), and he is so good that most f2p guides recommend and/or use him as f2p character. I hope he will be useful as Ninja :)

    Is anyone else amused by a character with the word Sharpshooter in its name, with zero base accuracy?

  9. DeaKoN December 6, 2021 at 8:04 am

    if Accuracy determined whether you would hit your target or not maybe. in raids case its just for debuffs not hitting your target

    My F2P account is not getting any S1MPLE login rewards. Only my older main account?
