After several months of waiting and two preview patches, Legends of Runeterra will be once again available on January 24th. All players will then have access to the game's open beta. New keepers, classified mode, exclusive rewards and more — everything you need to know is in this article!

The news has been long-awaited and the time has been long! Riot Games announced dates for Legends of Runeterra, and especially for its open beta. This will finally be on 24th January 2020 for absolutely everyone, although many will have access to it from the 23rd. Some new content is also mentioned...

New content: ranked games, social panel', challenge your friends' feature, three new boards, and three new guardians.

  • Season 0: all Open Beta players take part in building the meta and can improve until reaching the Master level.
  • Exclusive gift: All players who have tested the Beta will receive as a bonus an exclusive Lunar Poro Sentinel at the launch of the full game. To retrieve this version of the Poro Guardian, simply log in once during the beta (but only after the full game has been released) or within seven days of LoR's release.

Please note that all existing accounts created during the previous preview patches have been reset. In-game progressions will be kept between the Open Beta and the official release.

Guardians and boards

As Legends of Runeterra is intended to be free-to-play, players will have the opportunity to improve/modify their gaming experience by investing real money, but only to play as a new Guardian or have the opportunity to play on a new board in the colours of their favourite faction. As of January 24th, three new Guardians and three new boards will be available.
