League of Legends on your mobile soon!
In May 2019, Riot Games and Tencent will reportedly launch a mobile version of the League of Legends (LoL) game.
Welcoming the 10th anniversary of LoL’s game gliding on the PC platform for the first time, Riot Games confirmed the mobile version of League of Legends will be released next year.
Given the title League of Legends: Wild Rift, the game will go to Android, iOS, and one game console that hasn’t been determined yet.
From the gameplay side, this MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) game isn’t very different from the PC version.
As for the difference, it’s only limited to game optimization for mobile devices, virtual controls, new maps, and shorter combat sessions (around 15-20 minutes).
“Wild Rift is not an LoL port game on a PC,” Riot Games said as quoted by Polygon, Thursday (10/17/2019). “This is a new game that was created from scratch and will certainly provide experience for loyal gamers.”
Furthermore, Riot Games and Tencent have opened a pre-register program to conduct beta trials on Android and iOS devices.
Riot Games also claims that this game will not support desktop version crossplay.
Therefore, you don’t need to worry about PC gamers entering the mobile version of the game server.
However, to log into this game you must use your main League of Legends account.
Even so, not all champions and skins you have on the PC version will be accessible in League of Legends: Wild Rift.
