Riot Games Expands its League of Legends IP to Console for the First Time
Today, Riot Forge announced their first ever league IP to hit consoles: Ruined King: A League of Legends Story.
It will be available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, and The Epic Games Store, and later on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S - don't worry, existing PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will eventually be able to upgrade their version for free.
"Ruined King is a great way to expand the world of Runeterra for brand new players as well as our dedicated League of Legends (LoL) fans. Ruined King will be the first single-player game to bring the LoL universe to both consoles and PC. We are excited to take this plunge into exploring stories and champions that players have enjoyed over the years, and can’t wait for our players to embark on this new adventure with us."
- Leanne Loombe, Head of Riot Forge at Riot Games
The single-player turn-based RPG is set in two regions of Runeterra - Bilgewater and the Shadow Isles. To defeat "a common and mysterious enemy", the player will form a party consisting of beloved League of Legends champions - Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Yasuo, Ahri, and Pyke.
Developed by Airship Syndicate, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is the first game published by Riot Forge. More details on the game will be released in December; in the meantime, head on over to the official website to find out more.
