Developed by Airship Syndicate and published by Riot Forge, Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is slated for release in early 2021.
A first for any League of Legends (LoL) IP, the game will be available on PC and consoles like the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, The Epic Games Store, and later on, the PlayStation 5 system and Xbox Series X/S.
Existing PlayStation4 and Xbox One players will be given the ability to upgrade their version for free.
It’s an immersive single-player turn-based RPG, encouraging new players to get into the LoL universe and veteran lore enthusiasts to enjoy exploring its mysteries.
The story is set in two regions of Runeterra: Bilgewater and the Shadow Isles, where players will form an unlikely party with beloved League of Legends champions, Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Yasuo, Ahri, and Pyke to defeat a common and mysterious enemy.
“Ruined King is a great way to expand the world of Runeterra for brand new players as well as our dedicated League of Legends fans,” said Head of Riot Forge at Riot Games, Leanne Loombe.
“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.”
