Earlier today at its 10th anniversary celebration, Riot Games has announced a brand new League of Legends game called Wild Rift that will be coming to both mobile devices and unspecified consoles.
Based on the announcement trailer, we know that this is a brand new LOL game that was developed from scratch and not just a direct port over from the PC version. Matches will be shorter lasting from 15 to 20 minutes per game. A responsive dual-stick control scheme, designed exclusively for new platforms, makes sure your skillshots on mobile feel as crisp as they do on PC.
At launch, there will be 40 champions for Players to try out with more favorites in the future.
THE LEAGUE YOU KNOW
Experience the thrills of League’s competitive and strategic 5v5 gameplay, rebuilt specifically for mobile and console. Choose your champion, take to the Rift, and destroy the enemy Nexus in 15-20 minute matches.
A NEW RIFT
Explore the Wild Rift, a new-yet-familiar 5v5 map based on Summoner’s Rift and streamlined for faster games. A responsive dual-stick control scheme, designed exclusively for new platforms, makes sure your skillshots on mobile feel as crisp as they do on PC.
Wild Rift will include a familiar cast of over 40 champions at launch, with more favorites on the way. Light the way with Lux, spin to win with Garen, or blow it all up with Jinx.
COMPETE AND CLIMB
Master the new Rift, climb the Ranked ladder—and earn unique loot along the way. Like LoL PC, Wild Rift lets you prove yourself with high-skill champs, macro strategy, and myriad playstyles.
DRESS TO IMPRESS
Customize your champ’s look to your liking with loads of skins across dozens of themes. Then, get closer than ever before with Wild Rift’s all-new 3D model viewer.
SKILLS NOT BILLS
All champs can be earned for free, and there’s no paying for playtime or power. Ever.
Currently, there is a pre-registration going on on the Google Play Store.
