One of the most popular and iconic games which also happens to be a mega blockbuster hit in the world of amusements, can you guess the name of the game I am talking about? Well yes, maybe you guessed it right! I am talking about the League of Legends whose beta version named ‘ League of Legends: Wild Rift ‘ for the mobile is soon going to be launched by Riot Games.
The new beta version is modified in various ways to work better on the smartphone screens. It looks like an entirely new game rather than just a version developed for the mobile devices. However, the basic mobile online battle arena also known as MOBA of the game remains same and as always playable on the go! Faster rounds, smaller maps are some of the highlights of the new beta version of the game.
Now you must be excited to know about the release date and other whereabouts of the game!
Although, there isn’t any official date announced to release the game, the first closed beta of the wild rift was launched in September’2020 in several countries like Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia and Singapore.
In late October ‘2020,an open beta was also launched in the aforementioned countries as well as in South Korea and Japan. Finally, on March 29’2021 the new beta version i.e. League of Legends: Wild Rift was released in North America and other parts of the US giving the American players full access to the newly developed game. Apart from America the game is also available in several other countries like: Europe, Oceania, Vietnam, Taiwan, Middle East, Turkey, Russia, CIS, and North Africa.
So, if you’re a resident of any of the aforementioned countries, hurry up, download the game and play!
Also, for the people living in the region where the open beta isn’t available yet-you guys can pre register for the game but that’s only available for the Android users and as for the the ios users living in the region where open beta isn’t available yet you guys will have to wait a little more as there is very limited testing of the game!
If you’re an Android user you can download the game from Google play store and if you are an ios user you can download it from Apple Store! As it is available on all platforms the user or League of legends player count is increased.
