Over the weekend, a surprise announcement was made and it seems that League of Legends will actually be making its way to consoles early next year… in the form of a turn-based RPG.
First Valorant, then this. Riot is just jumping on all genres and it is great!
Ruined King: A League of Legends Story will be the first single-player game that will bring the LoL universe to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC, with free upgrades to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series when available.
The press release gives us an overview of the game:
Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is developed by Airship Syndicate (the creators of Battle Chasers: Nightwar and Darksiders Genesis, led by the legendary comic book artist Joe Madureira) and is the first game published by Riot Forge. This single-player and immersive turn-based RPG invites new players to the League of Legends universe as well as players entrenched in the lore to enjoy exploring its mysteries.
The story is set in two regions of Runeterra, Bilgewater, a port town that is home to sea monster hunters, dock gangs, and smugglers from across the known world; and the Shadow Isles, a land cursed with the deadly Black Mist which shrouds the island and corrupts those it comes in contact with. In order to defeat a common and mysterious enemy, players will form an unlikely party of beloved League of Legends champions—Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Yasuo, Ahri, and Pyke.
Futher news on the title will come in December so be sure to check out the Ruined King official website!
