League Of Legends Announces New Game For Console And Mobile (VIDEO)
Riot Games is currently celebrating the 10th anniversary League of Legends, with proceedings culminating in a big reveal regarding the popular MOBA franchise. While the event is surely a look back at an epic decade of fun, Riot has also taken this opportunity to announce several new projects set within the League of Legends universe, including a previously-rumored new console and mobile title called League of Legends: Wild Rift.
Shown off in a new announcement trailer, Riot’s Michael Chow premises Wild Rift as more than a simple port of the traditional LoL experience, but a completely bottom-to-top new game centered on the specific functionality of mobile and consoles. The title instead touts a streamlined design as well as “incredible depth” when it comes to gameplay, featuring an updated map, an “intuitive twin-stick control scheme,” and matches lasting between 15-20 minutes at a time. Check out the reveal footage below.
As of now, League of Legends: Wild Rift is still currently in the midst of development with a semi-global release planned for before the end of 2020. However, those curious about this new LoL experience won’t have to wait too long before getting the chance to give the console/mobile title a try. Riot has confirmed a series of alpha and beta sessions, each set to roll out in limited regions throughout the rest of 2019. Specific dates weren’t divulged, but more details are expected to come out soon.
