League Of Legends Card Game ‘Legends Of Runeterra’ Announced (VIDEO)
League of Legends developer Riot Games has been revealing new projects left-and-right as of late as part of the series’ 10th-anniversary celebration. More than just a look back at the last decade of LoL, the event also marked an occasion to showcase a bit of what the next ten years have to offer–namely, an all-new card game by the name of Legends of Runeterra.
Clearly League of Legends’ answer to Blizzard’s Hearthstone, Legends of Runeterra appears to be a pretty fitting alternative, offering variations based on Champions and regions of Runeterra, as well as sporting some seriously dazzling art and card animations. A full breakdown video was recently shown off by Riot, giving players the basics of regular gameplay, how to build decks, and going over a number of strategic ways to gain the upper hand in battle. Check out the video below.
As of now, Legends Of Runeterra has no specific release date but is eventually scheduled to launch sometime in early 2020. Those who’d prefer to start throwing down cards immediately can participate in the game’s beta, which is currently live for PC and available for pre-registration on Android and iOS devices. Of course, this only accounts for one of Riot’s newly-revealed projects over the last 24 hours, including the likes of a console/mobile experience called Wild Rift, in addition to an eye-popping new anime series.
