League Of Legends: Wild Rift - What We Know So Far

Here's just one (of many) gifts given to fans during Riot Games' League of Legends 10th anniversary celebration: the ability to play League on mobile and console. For a decade, players have been limited to playing on PC and only PC, but Riot has heard our collective cries and deemed it necessary to optimize a whole new version fit for mobile and console play.


Dubbed Wild Rift, here is everything you need to know about the upcoming mobile and console version of the game we all know and love and sometimes hate (everyone gets tilted now and again, no judgement here).

When is Wild Rift's release date?

During the news-packed anniversary stream, we were treated to the news that Wild Rift would be released sooner rather than later. According to Riot, the mobile version of Wild Rift will be available for iOS and Android users alike "everywhere in the world by the end of 2020." The mobile release will soon be followed by the console release, which will presumably take a little more time to perfect.


How much will Wild Rift cost?

Like League of Legends before it, Wild Rift will be entirely free-to-play. That said, players can fork over IRL cash if they want to buy skins and other cosmetic content. Sometimes those skins are really, very tempting... but are totally optional. You don't need the latest and greatest cosmetics in order to become a champion.


What platforms will Wild Rift be on?

On mobile, Wild Rift is being developed for both iOS and Android. Other than being shrunk down to fit smaller screens, the 5v5 games are also being shortened to take around 10-15 minutes rather than the usual 30. If you absolutely can't wait, pre-registration for a beta on Android devices will open soon. Hold on to your iPhones and iPads, because there will eventually be a beta announced for iOS, as well. 


And what about console? Wild Rift will first come to mobile, and then console. No word yet as to which consoles Wild Rift will be released on, but we'll keep you posted on when and where you can play Wild Rift.

Where is the Wild Rift trailer?

Riot's announcement of Wild Rift didn't have a trailer so much as a whole lot of information and explanation with little clips from the alpha version of the mobile game in between. What we did see was a new, mobile-friendly interface on top of what looked to be a normal game of League of Legends. All the usual characters, called Champions, will be included in the game, but they have been visually remastered. These new looks were shown off in the announcement, giving us just a taste of what's to come.
