Riot's vice president says Project A isn't like Overwatch

Riot's vice president says Project A isn't like Overwatch

It's been 10 years since League of Legends launched on PC, and just in time for the worldwide eSports phenomenon's 10th birthday, Riot is bringing a version to mobile and console platforms tweaked for best performance.

In any case, League of Legends: Wild Rift looks and plays pretty good. In the original game, you'd need to manually purchase them, and you could place them wherever you please. For starters, games in League of Legends Wild Rift will be considerably shorter than their PC counterparts. Featuring the classic 5v5 gameplay in a modified version of the iconic Summoner's Rift, with a 40-strong roster of champions (and counting), both recent and old.

The announcement was made during the League of Legends tenth anniversary livestream, where the League's Executive Producer, Michael Chow, made the case for League of Legends: Wild Rift. Obviously, there will be climbed ladder where you'll be able to earn loot according to your position.

League of Legends has existed within its own launcher for years. Riot did not have much to say about it other than it would be a fighting game.

League of Legends will be coming to mobile and console platforms, Riot has announced. More information to be revealed in 2020.

Close doesn’t count for winless Dolphins; Bills are next
It certainly was the case last week that the Dolphins moved the ball better with Fitzy under center than a struggling Rosen. Rosen, meanwhile, has 58 of his 109 goals for 567 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions in five games (three starts).

League of Legends isn't the only hugely popular game that's making its way to mobile, either.

More details about the game were provided during an pre-briefing, where Kotaku Australia was told that the game was not a port of League but designed from the ground up for mobiles.

Rather it's a new game mode that launched within League of Legends and is now in public beta.

Legends of Runeterra is described as a free-to-play competitive card game. Though the testing period is only one week long, the developers ensure a certain level of transparency and experimentation will help the game survive. On mobile, it will be a standalone title, and like the other two games it will feature many familiar champions.

The LoL spin on the Auto Chess genre, Teamfight Tactics, now has a launch window for mobile. It will be coming to PC, iOS, and Android. So if you've played it there you probably will already know how to contend with it on your smartphone. It will also be available for iOS in the future.
