CS: GO star Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev has already achieved the status of a legend in Counter-Strike with his audacious AWPing skills and his innate clutch ability. Raid: Shadow Legends, a free-to-play turn-based RPG, is set to adapt the young athlete into a playable in-game Legendary Champion.

As a result of a collaboration between Natus Vincere and Raid: Shadow Legends, a High Elf legendary champion based on s1mple will be available to the entire player base for free, starting December 1 2021. Players can avail the character on the 7th day of consecutive gameplay, within two months of release.
