League of Legends is coming to mobile and console
Riot Games has announced that its hugely popular PvP game League of Legends is coming to platforms besides PC. This new version, Wild Rift, is destined for consoles - and also for mobile devices. The studio has indicated that it is coming to Android first off: in fact, OPPO has secured an exclusive deal by which it sticks its name on this title's World Championship, thus gaining an association with the mobile version.
The OEM is confident that its software and AI (not to mention its 5G) will be sufficient to meet the requirements of serious and even professional League players when the time comes to play it on mobile. As for Wild Rift in general, Riot Games asserts that it is more than a simple port from PC. The new variant is slated to have its own maps, controls (dual-stick, which would fit in nicely with the virtual nature of mobile gaming) for the classic 5v5 mode, and rewards.
On the other hand, the developers have conceded that not all champs, skins or locks from the classic game will make it to mobile (or console). The new version will also have shorter 15-20 minute matches, in accordance with fan feedback. League of Legends: Wild Rift is set to start becoming available from 2020; interested players can pre-register for Play Store, but not App Store, installs on the game's website right now.
