League of Legends Console and Mobile Versions Announced, and It’s a Bit Different

Share this:

One of the world’s biggest games, League of Legends, is coming to both mobile and consoles! Announced by Riot Games as part of the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game’s 10th anniversary celebration, this League of Legends console version and mobile version will be called “Wild Rift,” and won’t be a port.

While no release date has been announced, we do know that it’ll be out sometime in 2020. Also of note, League of Legends: Wild Rift is not a port, and has been tweaked to be a more streamlined approach to mobile and console gamers. There’s a new map, matches will be shorter (around 20 minutes each), and of course, the controls have been tweaked to be playable via analog sticks as well.

It’s also unknown which console platforms we’ll get Wild Rift on, but the PS4 and Xbox One are good bets, with the Nintendo Switch possibly being another candidate.

Will League of Legends capture the console and mobile world as it did the PC gaming crowd? We’ll know for sure next year.
