Back in May, we highlighted a rumor that League of Legends might be coming to Android courtesy of Tencent, a company that happens to own Riot Games, the developer of League of Legends. It has now been revealed that Riot has been very busy having recently announced this Three new games for mobile phones based on the LoL franchise. In this article I will talk about it League of Legends: Wilder Riss, a revised 5v5 MOBA slated for release to mobile devices and consoles in 2020. So if you’re excited to see Wild Rift arrive, I’m happy to let you know that it’s already available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store.
The trailer above should give a good idea of what to expect from League of Legends: Wild Rift. It sure looks like it, although the video makes it clear that the game has been redesigned for play on mobile and console with a new 5v5 card specially designed for those platforms that only played 15-20 minutes will. So it’s clear that Wild Rift isn’t a port on the PC version, it’s a completely new game. You can still expect to see more than a few familiar faces in the mix, with around 40 champions expected to launch and more should follow after the official release. The game will be free to play, although Riot boasts that it won’t be pay-to-win, a bold claim indeed. Once the game is over, those who log in with existing PC accounts will receive rewards for their time spent in LoL on PC.
So far we know that Wild Rift will offer two digital thumb pins for the controls in the Android version and that the alpha and beta builds should be rolled out in the next few months. The 2020 release reportedly means the game will be available worldwide on mobile devices by the end of the year. The console versions should follow shortly thereafter.
League of Legends: Wild Rift seems like a reinterpretation of the PC version in every way, designed for faster sessions that can be well controlled on both consoles and mobile devices. Given the popularity of MOBAs on mobile, I can see why Riot is dying to add to their catalog, although I’m not sure how the game is monetized. I hope Riot doesn’t get too greedy, and since people seem to think the PC version is pretty monetized, it would be nice if a similar system were broadcast for the mobile version. So if you want to get your hands on League of Legends: Wild Rift, you can always pre-register through the Play Store widget at the bottom of the page so that you will receive a notification every time the game is officially launched.
Riot posted the new Dev Diary trailer above to show how the game is progressing in development, while also announcing that limited Android alpha testing will take place in Brazil and the Philippines starting in Brazil June 6-27. The first part of the video describes that the developer could use some help polishing the game, so it encourages testers to report problems and bugs through feedback. After that, you’ll find out which heroes made the cut. The gameplay is also discussed in the following section of the video so it covers the game’s optimized rune system. In all fairness, the video above goes into great detail on what players can expect when the game officially lands this summer, which is why it’s fourteen minutes long.
So if you’re curious to see how League of Legends: Wild Rift evolves when the game goes through its first limited alpha test, Riot has you covered with the developer gameplay trailer mentioned above. Unfortunately, after the “Summer” placeholder, we don’t have an official release date yet, and I couldn’t help but notice that monetization wasn’t mentioned in the trailer above, which is a shame. If you’d like to receive a notification on the day the game is officially released on the Play Store, you can use the Play Store widget again at the bottom of the page.
Earlier this year, Riot began testing alpha builds of its mobile MOBA League of Legends: Wilder Riss. This week the game launches its first regional beta in Southeast Asia. From September 16, fans in Indonesia can test the beta. From the 18th, those who live in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand can also participate. Each region is rolled out in waves. Once the closed beta ends in October (no specific date specified), all player accounts will be reset.
Primarily, this regional beta will be on Android, although some select iOS users may be able to jump into their own limited beta that you can sign up for on the official Wild Rift website. Ideally, the current closed beta for League of Legends: Wild Rift tests the balance. So when you get in, expect changes as things like gameplay, leveling, and upgrade systems are tweaked.
Riot also released a new developer diary which you can check out below.

In September (2020) Riot offered a closed beta for the upcoming MOBA in selected areas (Southeast Asia) League of Legends: Wilder Riss that would end in October. Now that October is almost over, Riot has announced one to open Beta for residents of Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand, which means anyone who lives in these regions can now jump into the open beta for Wild Rift on Android.
Riot recently posted on Facebook that COVID actually hampered the game’s development. So it seems like a challenge for the company to set certain dates for the title’s open beta worldwide release. More regions are expected to participate in today’s Open Beta over the next two months, and more are planned for 2021. So if you were hoping that the League of Legends: Wild Rift beta would be out soon in the west, right now it looks like we’re going to have to wait a little longer.
