The rumours that had been spreading for a few months now have been confirmed! League of Legends, the massively popular MOBA from Riot Games, is coming to mobiles and consoles!
During the special edition of Riot Please to celebrate the game's 10th anniversary, the US-based developer unveiled this mobile version.
It'll be slightly different from the core League of Legends we know on PC, adapted to be playable on mobile and consoles with a dual-joystick control system. It'll also be reworked to make games more bite-sized, coming in at 10-15 minutes.
To mark the difference, this new game will be called League of Legends: Wild Rift.
The official release date has not yet been revealed, but the game will be available in 2020. Pre-registration is now possible on the Google Play Store.
At launch, only 40 champions will be available, but others will be added later. Here is the list of confirmed champions so far:
- Twisted Fate
- Miss Fortune
The game will be free-to-play, ranked matches will be available, and PC League of Legends players will be able to link their accounts to gain rewards!
In the latest Ask Riot, topics covered include the end of the ranked League of Legends season, the return of URF, champions without mana, and match history in Teamfight Tactics.
