maybe he will tie in with pulsefire ez and be released together
Sounds Thor-ish ...
What's the worst that can happen to you ...
Someone found some links on a chinese website and translated it roughly into English, one of the links contained Jayce's abilities, but nothing of this is official and might very well be fake.
Passive (both modes): Jayce gains 40 bonus MS and ignores unit collision for 1.25 seconds after each transformation.
Hammer mode (melee)
Q (Thunderstrike): Does magic damage based on X% of target's max hp and knocks away the target.
W (Thunderleap): Jumps to target area, dealing physical damage and applying a slow to all surrounding enemies.
E (Mordin cannon): Transforms into cannon form, gaining increased range and new abilities.
Cannon mode (ranged)
Q (Gate of Speed): Jayce summons a gate boosting the MS of all friendly champions passing through the gate. If Jayce's ranged autoattacks pass through this gate, the projectiles gain increased damage/range/speed.
W (Energy Charge): Jayce overcharges, gaining attack speed for a few attacks.
E (Mordin Hammer): Transforms into hammer form, gaining passive armor and magic resist and new abilities.
R (both modes): Passive mana gain on autoattack, active point blank AoE damage over time.

Well I've seen that around on the official LoL forums, so I'll assume its legit. If it is, seems like my guess was mostly correct. Seems like you'll either build glass cannon and make him a ranged AD carry or build the typical AD Bruiser build and be solo top.
Although I feel like he's missing something to preform either role at the fullest potential.
I'm not sure if I like... rather not.
However, if that is all correct, he does seem kinda Support-viable. So I'm ok with that.
[e]: Another poster's opinion on skill setup (Since the original doesn't state what skill is on what key.)
Although, if he is right, we're missing a skill I think? Shock Blast does sound like a skillshot though, so that would make sense.In sound files weapon changing states as champion ultimate. Basically this kit fits to my speculations. Probably he will have level 1 ultimate, like Karma. I think that is most probable because of his passive.
If this skills are real so his kit should look:
Q - Thundering Blow / Shock Blast
W - To the Skies / Acceleration Gate
E - Static Field / Hyper Charge
R - Deformation: Mercury (?) Hammer/Cannon
Skill names based on sound files.
[e2]: Also, there's files in the client called "ShockBlastMis" and ShockBlastWallMis" which would be the files for the missles of Shock Blast, and whether it went through the Gate or not.
Yeah. That gate thing has me slightly confused as to exactly how it would work off auto-attacks. And if it is his AA that gets affected, why not just go foward an make it all ranged AA, so he can be played as support. I honestly do not see him being good in both forms or people will cry OP, so support would be perfect.
Gate of Speed doesn't really sound like a Q ability. I think there's some confusion over the abilities.
He looks like Darius with a ridiculous get up and a big hammer. The abilities are cool, but he seems a bit underwhelming for the 100th champion.
