League of Legends Wild Rift enters closed beta in select regions

The League of Legends mobile game, Wild Rift, is edging ever closer to its full release. Riot has given fans a surprise announcement on September 15 that the game is going into closed beta in select regions starting September 16.

Things have been pretty quiet on the Wild Rift front. Out of all the titles revealed at League 10, Riot’s definitely been the most secretive about their mobile League of Legends clone. However, a surprise announcement on September 15 had some big news: the closed beta is here.


Players across the world will be able to jump in on the mobile League action starting in the coming hours. If you’ve been dying to try out Wild Rift, here’s what you need to know about getting involved.

When does Wild Rift’s closed beta release?

After a successful regional alpha in June, Riot are now rolling out the red carpet for Wild Rift’s closed beta. Players across select regions will be available to play the League of Legends mobile game from September 16.


This will be eventually scaled up over the coming weeks and months, going to different parts of the globe. The closed beta is expected to run “for a few weeks,” although Riot didn’t set a firm date on it.

What regions will the closed beta be available?

Wild Rift’s closed beta will be available across select countries in South East Asia. Sadly, if you live in North America, Europe, or South America, you won’t be able to get in on the action ⁠— for now at least. Riot have promised more closed betas in the next few months, so keep your eyes peeled!

“We’re going region by region for our Closed Beta to make sure we’re prioritizing stability before moving to the next. Most of the regions in this test are geographically fairly close to one another, so we can focus on scale testing a smaller group of servers,” they said in the dev post.

Wild Rift features around 40 League champions currently, but Riot are planning on expanding it to the full roster.

The full list of Wild Rift closed beta countries can be found below. Indonesia will start their closed beta on September 16, while the rest will have access on September 18:

  • Indonesia
  • Malaysia
  • Philippines
  • Singapore
  • Thailand

How to play the Wild Rift closed beta

To play the Wild Rift closed beta, you’ll first need to pre-register on your mobile device of choice. Unfortunately, the test will be primarily for Android, but if you have an Apple device, there’s still a chance you can get in on the action.

If you have an iPhone (or iPad), you can sign up for the closed beta through the official Wild Rift website. Riot are opening up select spots during the closed beta for iOS devices, so you might just get lucky!


Then, once you pre-register, you just have to wait and see. Players will be randomly selected for the closed beta. From there, you’ll just have to download, log in with the Google account you pre-registered with, and start playing!

Here’s a quick step by step guide if that was all a bit confusing:

  1. Pre-register your device on either the Wild Rift website (iOS) or the Play Store (Android)
  2. Wait until you get an invite.
  3. Once invited, download the. game on your device.
  4. Log in using the details you pre-registered with.
  5. Start playing!

The League of Legends Wild Rift closed beta starts on September 16, so sign up now if you want in!


How to claim free Genshin Impact Primogems: Promo codes

Genshin Impact is home to loads of colorful characters, but you’ll need to spend a lot of Primogems if you wish to increase your chances of obtaining the game’s elusive five-star units. Fortunately, there is an easy way to grab a lot of Primogems without breaking the bank. 

MiHoYo’s free-to-play title, Genshin Impact allows players to explore every inch of its vast open-world completely free of charge. In fact, you can get through the entirety of the game’s current content without spending a penny. However, if you wish to increase your roster of characters and gain access to some incredibly powerful weapons, then you’ll need to score yourself a lot of Primogems. 


These twinkling gems are used to purchase the game’s Acquaint Fates and Intertwined Fates, which are then used to Perform Wishes (Gacha). Primogems are also used to refill the game’s energy/stamina system (Original Resin), making them vital to both acquiring new characters and farming the game’s deadly dungeons. While you’ll naturally get this in-game currency as you progress through the game, there is an even easier way to add more Primogems to your account. 

How to redeem Genshin Impact promo codes

Claiming your free Primogems only take a couple of minutes.

One way to add Primogems to your Genshin Impact account is to redeem promo codes. These codes not only net you a decent number of Primogems, they also give you access to a number of useful items that will make your adventure through the world of Teyvat much smoother. 


In order to claim these codes, you’ll first need to level your account up to Adventure Rank 10. You can do this fairly quickly by doing main/side quests, exploring the map, opening chests, and doing your daily commissions. Once you’ve reached Adventure Rank 10, simply head on over to the official Genshin Impact website

Before you enter the region-specific codes below, make sure you’ve done the following:

  1. Reached Adventure Rank 10
  2. Signed into the official Genshin Impact Website
  3. Selected the server you play on
  4. Entered your character nickname (in-game name) 

As soon as you’ve done the above, you should be able to enter the following code:



  • GENSHIN1006U


  • GENSHIN1006A


  • GENSHIN1006S

Once the code has been activated, head back over to your game. If done correctly, you should receive an in-game notification. Simply click on the mail icon from the pause menu to claim your rewards. The above codes will reward your account with 30 Primogems and 5x Adventure EXP that you can use to level up any characters. Not bad for a few minutes of work!

We’ll be updating this post whenever miHoYo’s adds any new promo codes to the game, so make sure you come back here for further Genshin Impact news and content updates.
