Riot Forge announced that it has launched its first two games while giving a preview of others that are currently in development. Both Ruined King: A League of Legends Story and Hextech Mayhem: A League of Legends Story are available to play. Riot Forge, a publishing label within Riot Games, will be creating several more games developed by third-party studios that are based on League of Legends. Riot launched the label in 2019 when it announced several League spin-off titles.
Ruined King, which was first announced in 2019, is a single-player turn-based RPG developed by Airship Syndicate, an indie studio in Austin, Texas. Several League characters will team up to stop a mysterious enemy, traveling from Bilgewater to the Shadow Isles. It has launched on consoles as well as various PC stores and will be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S soon.
Hextech Mayhem is a rhythm runner from Choice Provisions, the developers of the Bit.trip games. According to a description of the game from Riot Forge, players must “perform bomb-jumps and bomb-attacks to the beat of a toe-tapping soundtrack to avoid obstacles, disarm enemies, and light fuses for satisfying and explosive chain reactions to achieve maximum mayhem.” In addition to Switch and PC stores, the game will soon debut on Netflix as well.
In addition to the aforementioned titles, Riot also revealed some new details about its upcoming releases. This includes Conv/rgence: A League of Legends Story. It’s due to launch sometime in 2022 on consoles and PC. Song of Nunu: A League of Legends Story, from Tequila Works, got a gameplay featurette during a recent showcase. It’s an adventure game coming to consoles and PC that follows Nunu and Willump as they search for the former’s mother. It’s also set to launch in 2022.
