Riot Forge has announced that the single player RPG Ruined King: A League of Legends Story will be released in early 2021 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC via Steam and Epic, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. The game is being developed by Airship Syndicate. Riot Forge also confirmed that players who buy the PS4 and Xbox One versions will get a free upgrade to the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions respectively.
League of Legends has a large roster of Champions but not all of them will be appearing in Ruined King: A League of Legends Story. Instead, the confirmed Champions are Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Pyke Yasuo, Braum and Ahri. There is very little information on what to expect with the official description reading:
Ruined King is a narrative driven turn-based RPG centered around the unlikely partnership between some familiar faces as they work together for the benefit of all Runeterra. This is Riot’s first foray into a completable, interactive experience that will allow players (like yourselves) to experience Runeterra in new ways.
Ruined King: A League of Legends Story was the first announced title from Riot Games’ publishing arm Riot Forge. Under this label Riot Games will provide all of the necessary support to studios regarding League lore and allow the studios to base games upon established stories or go further and add new stories to the universe which will be canon. Riot Games will also help handle localisation, marketing, and provide voice-over talent. Developers that work with Riot Forge won’t be limited when it comes to platforms with PC, consoles, and mobile all areas in which League of Legend games will be published.
