League of Legends spin off title, codenamed Project L, will be a tag team fighter and there is some footage of the game. However, Riot Games has stated that while the footage does look good it is only a small part of the game, and fans should not expect Project L to be released in 2022. In addition, no platforms have yet been confirmed for Project L. You can check out the fighting footage below and this will be your lot until later in 2022 when more details will be released.
In the blog post Riot Games wrote: “We’re excited to share that Project L will be a tag-team style fighting game, where you’ll build and pilot a team of two different champions. In this preview, you’ll see we’ve updated the game’s art style and included a breakdown of a champion’s kit. You’ll catch a glimpse of how we’re approaching controls with an easy-to-learn but hard-to-master mentality.
We also talk a little about one of our top priorities for the game: to build the absolute best in netcode that you can get in a fighter. Of course we’re starting with rollback as a foundation, and we’re adding in existing tech from Riot like RiotDirect, which does a great job at minimizing ping for League of Legends and VALORANT.
So when will you get to play? Well we’re almost locked in on the stuff that makes a game a game (core gameplay, controls, art direction, etc.) but we still need to do things like build out a full roster of champions, design stages, add menus and UI, create ranking systems, and more.”
League of Legends is popular and has recently been in the spotlight thanks to the Netflix show League of Legends Arcane, which has been renewed for another season. Riot Games has also been in the headlines and not for the right reasons. Earlier this year the CEO was sued for sexual harassment, and there was also the gender discrimination case which was settled for $10 million.
