Why League Of Legends: Wild Rift Is Worth Waiting For
In October, 2019, Riot Games announced plans to release the mobile version of League of Legends which was first released in 2009 and played on PC. They had been hesitant to create a version for mobile phones, insisting the game play cannot be replicated in mobile phones. The success of games like Arena of Valor could have contributed to their change in stance. Since then, it has been a long wait for millions of gamers around the world. The success of the PC version is responsible for this.
From June 6 – 27, 2020, the game was tested in Philippines and Brazil. Gamers who pre-registered were contacted and allowed to play the limited version. The belief is that these countries have a diverse range of gamers and could give the developers the widest range of feedbacks in order to fine-tune the game. Work is still in progress on the game and it is expected to be released sometime towards the end of 2020. The console version will be released sometime after that in the same year.
