League of Legends: Wild Rift is an upcoming multiplayer online battle arena video game developed and published by Riot Games for iOS. The game is an abridged version of its PC counterpart, League of Legends.[1]

As in League of Legends, players control a character ("champion") with unique abilities and battle against a team of players or AI-controlled units, with the goal of destroying the opposing team's "Nexus". Each League of Legends: Wild Rift match is discrete, with all champions starting off relatively weak but increasing in strength by accumulating items and experience over the course of the game. The champions and setting blend a variety of genres, including high fantasy, steampunk, and Lovecraftian horror.

History[]

After acquiring Riot Games, Tencent asked them to turn their popular game League of Legends into a mobile title. However, Riot declined and claimed that League of Legends gameplay could not be replicated on smartphones. Tencent then proceeded to create their own mobile game, Wangzhe Rongyao, released in 2015 and known in English as Honor of Kings. A modified version was released internationally in 2017 as Arena of Valor.[2]
