What you need to know
- League of Legends is a massively popular MOBA on PC.
- Riot Games has just announced a new game called League of Legends: Wild Rift
- This game is designed to bring League of Legends to mobile devices and consoles
- You can pre-register on the Google Play Store right now.
Update: Oct. 16, 2019: As a part of their 10th anniversary livestream, Riot has also announced multiple other games. There's a tactical FPS currently called Project A, a management sim, a card game, a (long-rumored) fighting game, and even a hint that an MMO could be coming.
Riot Games has just announced League of Legends: Wild Rift. This new game is not a port of the incredibly popular PC title but is instead an entirely new game, aimed to bring the experience of League of Legends to mobile devices and consoles. You can take a look at the announcement trailer for League of Legends: Wild Rift below.
The gameplay has been completely redesigned around twin sticks and it is different enough that cross-play between this and the PC title won't be possible. Riot is however exploring the possibility of cross-platform play between the mobile versions and the console versions of the game. There'll also be rewards for PC players who try it out, with unspecified bonuses based on the time invested in the PC game.
There will be "around" 40 champions at launch, with more coming later. Riot Games states that much like the original game on PC, this title will be free-to-play and never pay-to-win, so you can likely expect microtransactions to be limited to cosmetic items like skins. More information on console platforms is coming at a later date.
