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.


s1mple collected a plethora of accolades with NAVI in 2021, winning several S-tier tournaments, notably Blast Premier: Fall Finals 2021, ESL Pro League Season 14, IEM XVI - Cologne, and CS: GO's prestigious PGL Major Stockholm 2021.

Keeping up with his reputation as one of the best AWPers in CS: GO's history, s1mple's High Elf champion also stands out as a sharp-shooter. On his feature in the game, s1mple commented,

"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," said S1mple. "I can't wait for my fans to get a chance to add this character to their team and always hit their marks!"

NaVi's collaboration with Raid: Shadow Legends extends beyond s1mple's feature in the game. Earlier in January 2021, NaVi signed on a jersey sponsorship deal with Raid: Shadow Legends to support the organization in their tournament runs across various eSports titles.
