Riot Games has announced Ruined King: A League of Legends Story; a turn-based RPG set in the world of Runeterra. The game features some of the most beloved League of Legends champions, and will be available across multiple platforms.

The announcement came after game two of the LoL Worlds finals, after Suning equalized the series against DAMWON Gaming.

Riot has made a concerted effort to branch out into new genres, with releases of Valorant and Legends of Runeterra expanding the company’s brand and portfolio beyond the reaches of traditional LoL players.

Riot has also made clear its desire to move away from strictly PC and into console and mobile gaming. League of Legends: Wild Rift, a non-PC port of the original title, recently released its open beta.

Fans have been calling for a LoL RPG for many years, so the announcement comes with a huge amount of hype. There’s still plenty of details that need ironing out, like the mysterious identity of the Ruined King, for example.

You can check out the trailer for Ruined King: a League of Legends story below.

Ruined King will be distributed through the Steam and Epic Games stores on PC, with copies also available on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, and has been co-developed by Darksiders Genesis creators Airship Syndicate.

What we know so far about Ruined King: A League of Legends Story

Riot Forge excitedly teased a fair few details after the second game of the series.

The game will be set in Runeterra, with the story based around Bilgewater’s Miss Fortune, Illaoi, and Pyke. Ionian champions Yasuo and Ahri are also playable, as Braum ventures down from the Freljord tundras to provide support and stability to this new squad.

The game is set in Bilgewater, a port town that is home to sea monster hunters, dock gangs, and smugglers from across the known world; and the Shadow Isles, a land cursed with the deadly Black Mist.

Ruined King will launch on all platforms in early 2021.

The next FIFA 21 Team of the Week, TOTW 8, is now on its way in Ultimate Team ⁠— here’s everything we know about the new upgraded team so far, including any EA SPORTS leaks, the promo’s release time, and more.

International games are in focus this week, as a number of European squads looked to solidify their spots for Euro 2020. The feel-good story of the weekend was Scotland, who qualified for an international tournament for the first time since making the World Cup in 1998.

In regards to potential in-form cards, there were a number of standout stars; Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum, Timo Werner, and Riyad Mahrez all shone this weekend.

Not every domestic competition was on break though either. Shun Nagasawa could well have booked himself a TOTW spot, after scoring a hat-trick against Gamba Osaka in the J1 League early on Saturday evening at Suita City Stadium.

Here’s everything we know about the mid-week promo so far, including when the newest Team of the Week lineup will drop in FIFA 21 Ultimate Team, possible in-form card leaks, and Dexerto’s weekly TOTW predictions.
