Fans in North America will soon be able to play League of Legends on their phones. At a major event detailing what 2021 will look like for the League, Riot developers revealed that Wild Rift – mobile and console version of the game – to be launched in open beta in America starting in March. It is not clear on which platforms the beta will be available, but previous open beta versions were primarily on Android and iOS.
In addition, Riot outlined their plans to support Wild Rift throughout the year. This includes regular events like the Lunar New Year’s Festival in February, the ranked season that starts in some regions this week, and the addition of about two new characters each month.
Another big revelation from the event relates to Riot’s sporting ambitions. League of Legends is currently the biggest competitive game in the world, and Riot is trying to do something similar for his tactical shooter Valorant. So it should come as no surprise that developers now say they want to build esports scenes for their trio of League spinoffs: Teamfight Tactics, Legends of Runeterra and Wild Rift.
Competitive mobile games like Honor of Kings, PUBG Mobile and Brawl Stars are some of the most popular in the world, so it makes a lot of sense for Riot to try something similar with their titles on smartphones, however there aren’t many details on what the scenes are yet to look like.
Meanwhile, developers have also announced that this year World Cup League of Legends held in Shenzhen, China. Last year’s event took place in Shanghai.
