League of Legends is Finally Coming to Android and iOS Devices


Yes you read that title right that the popular League of Legends (LoL), one of the biggest PC games in the world, is finally coming to Android and iOS devices, and some other unnamed gaming consoles. It is the same League of Legends game but streamlined and optimized for mobile platforms and it will be called the League of Legends: Wild Rift, Riot Games announced during LoL's 10th anniversary celebration.

The game developer further revealed that it is actually not a League of Legends port from PC to mobile. In fact the Widl Rift has been in development for quite some time now and the reason behind being announced just now is that they redeveloped "the whole game from scratch" making sure that the mobile experience will be more optimized and great when it comes out. That said, this mobile version of LoL will feature faster matches (about 15-20 minutes) and sport dual-stick and thumb-friendly controls for mobile platforms. At launch, there will be about a roster of 40 characters or champions to choose from and then more will be added along the way. Also since this is a complete redone version of LoL heavily optimized for mobile, cross-play with PC version is not a possibility.

Riot Games said they aim to fully rollout the League of Legends: Wild Rift to everyone around the globe by the end of 2020. Though they mentioned that early alpha and beta releases will happen soon in Asia and interested players can pre-register there interest via Google Play and App Store. Once the Wild Rift is ready for everybody, Riot Games said it will be a free to download and play game. Though the company mentioned the game will also come to consoles, nothing more was revealed.
