However, with the game being set in Piltover and Zaun, it’s likely some of his old friends like Jinx and Vi could make a cameo appearance, especially after Arcane.
CONV/RGENCE centers around Ekko and his journeys through Zaun, trying to stop Chembarons from blowing up his city.
The 2D platformer utilizes time-travel and the champion’s iconic movement abilities — tied together with Double Stallion’s action-packed style. With his Zerodrive, he can reverse time so if you mess up, you can rewind and change your approach.
However, it’s not all about combat, with the developers promising plenty of exploration opportunities as you uncover more details about Zaun, beyond what you learn in Arcane.
