Get ready for a new adventure in 2021
Months ago Riot Games showed a small preview of everything to come. The company prepares from a card game to other types of proposals different from the MOBA genre, but all maintaining something in common: stories based on the League of Legends universe.
Now we have some more information about the next game to come, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story. This will be a spin-off of League of Legends and is intended for a single player. A proposal that can be frankly interesting for all those who are attracted to the stories and characters of LoL, but not the type of mechanics that the original game proposes.
The first and most interesting thing is that, without having a specific day (something we already know is very risky today to do) the game will be out in early 2021. That means that it will not be long before anyone can enjoy this spin-off that will reach practically all current gaming platforms. There will be a version for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam and Epic Games Store. Later will come the versions for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and Series S, which can be accessed for free if you update from PS4 and Xbox One.
For the rest, the other new details about Ruined King is that it will be a turn-based RPG for a single player. This will be set in the regions of Bilgewater and The Isles of Shadows, both regions of Runeterra. Although for some the most important thing will be to know which champions they can use as playable characters. Well, if there are no last minute changes, these will be: Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Yasuo, Ahri and Pyke.
Now we just need to see real images of the game. Something that has not happened yet, but of which it is already commented that could share items with Battle Chaser Nightwar. This title has been developed by the same studio that is handling Ruined King. In addition, many similarities could be found between the two. Luckily in December we will get out of doubts, because the company says that it will be then when we know more data.
Riot Forge and everything to come
With this news from Ruined King Riot Games confirms that their strategy with Riot Forge is working as expected. And the company created this new label with the intention of expanding the League of Legends universe through games that other studios would develop.
Thus, during the past months, we have already seen other proposals such as the Legends of Runeterra card game or the recently seen from League of Legends: Wild Rift which will be released for Android and iOS mobile devices and of which we already know that its open beta has begun and will expand little by little. Of course, what many may want to see is the animated series that is also being prepared.
Therefore, if you are a LoL fan, prepare for everything to come. And if you want to kill time until these new games arrive, here is a good selection of free games for console and PC.
