Riot Games is in the process of launching its global hit, League of Legends, with a mobile version. This version of the game is called League of Legends: Wild Rift. The game works on smartphones differently than usual games. However, the core MOBA gameplay is still intact and playable on the go.
Not many players around the world have gotten the chance to play in the closed beta. Back in September, only the Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand had the chance. The open beta is still slowly rolling out to other regions around. The beta is said to be slowly going live in Europe in early 2021. The rumors around are about the game coming to the Americas in March. There hasn’t been a public launch or announcement yet.
League of Legends: Wild Rift Price
Wild Rift was first announced back in October 2019 as part of Riot Games’ 10th-anniversary celebration of League of Legends’ debut. In mid-2020, the game was being tested in two regions: Brazil and the Philippines. When it comes to the price, we are expecting the mobile version to be free to play just like the base of League of Legends was.
