Riot Games announced League of Legends: Wild Rift a little while back and it is a mobile and console spin-off of the PC title League of Legends. Now, the studio has released a development diary that dives into the gameplay of League of Legends: Wild Rift. In addition, Riot Games confirmed that there will be a limited Android alpha of the game in Brazil and the Philippines. The video also delves a bit further into the Champions and skins.
The League of Legends: Wild Rift description reads as follows:
Coming in 2020, League of Legends: Wild Rift brings the fast-paced PVP action-strategy of the LoL PC game to mobile and console! Featuring the same skill-based 5v5 PVP gameplay you expect from League of Legends on PC, Wild Rift was built from the ground up for new platforms. Lock your choice from a huge cast of League champions, team up with friends, and outplay the opposition.
The game will be a free to play title and it is not a direct port of the PC version of League of Legends. Instead, Wild Rift has been developed from scratch and will have differences including refreshed models and animations. This means that there will be no crossplay between the PC version of League of Legends and Wild Rift on mobile and consoles. However, the two versions of the games will likely share themes and events as they are added to the game by Riot Games.
The mobile specs that Riot Games is aiming for are:
- Android: 1.5GB RAM, Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, and Adreno 306 GPU. We’re working to support 32-bit Android processors.
- iOS: iPhone 6 and later.
League of Legends: Wild Rift is set to launch this year but a firm release date is yet to be confirmed for the title by Riot Games.
