To give you some background about Wild Rift, Riot Games announced this exciting title last year in celebration of their 10 year anniversary for their popular MOBA game, League of Legends. The mobile version, League of Legends: Wild Rift, will be similar to the one found on PC but was rebuilt with mobile in mind while also adding a new map to the game. For those that are not familiar with the gameplay style, it is a 5v5 MOBA that pioneered the genre a decade ago.
There will be 40 champions from the PC version and more characters that will be added later on. Wild Rift will not be able to cross-play with the original League of Legends found on PC due to various differences in functionality. Each match in Wild Rift is designed to last approximately 15 to 18 minutes since its targeting a mobile audience.
Now for the news that you came for today, Riot Games has recently revealed some of the much anticipated League of Legends: Wild Rift Gameplay. As far as we have seen, the game looks phenomenal. What do we know this far? Starting June 5th until June 26th, the Alpha tests will take place in regions like Brazil and the Philippines to select Android players.
During this period, Riot Games will be able to explore if the game is stable enough or not. Additionally, they want to see if it lives up to the expectations of the players involved, from the progression system down to the Champions.
We previously mentioned that the minimum specs required for Android devices to run the game when it’s launched is 1.5GB RAM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 Processor and an Adreno 306 GPU. They are also working to support 32-bit Android processors. As for iOS devices, the game should be able to run on the iPhone 6 or later devices.
