With the annual League of Legends tournament Worlds 2020 coming to a conclusion recently, it looks like fans of the MOBA already have something to look forward to.
‘Ruined King: A League of Legends Story’ is a singleplayer turn-based role-playing game that is scheduled to arrive in early 2021. The project was initially announced way back in December 2019 as the first League of Legends singleplayer title.
The game will be available to play across platforms, as officially confirmed by the developers. “Ruined King will be the first singleplayer game to bring the LoL universe to both consoles and PC,” Leanne Loombe, Riot Forge head, said in a press release. “We are excited to take this plunge into exploring stories and champions that players have enjoyed over the years, and can’t wait for our players to embark on this new adventure with us.”
Riot Forge is a label under Riot Games that focuses on publishing League of Legends games from third-party studios. Releases from this label will be set in the world of Runeterra, and feature characters from League of Legends.
Today, an announcement trailer was released by Riot Forge teasing the upcoming title. The trailer featured six League of Legends champions namely Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Yasuo, Ahri and Pyke.
The exact release date hasn’t been specified by Riot as of yet, but fans can expect the game to arrive by early 2021. Ruined King will be available to play on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch. PC players will be able to find the title on Steam and Epic Games stores once it releases.
