The management mobile game League of Legends Esports Manager recently began open beta testing in mainland China this month. This comes almost three full years after the game was first announced by Riot.
LoL Esports Manager will feature players from the ongoing LPL 2022 Spring season alongside legacy players from other seasons. Some of the teams included in the game will be Bilibili Gaming, Edward Gaming, Royal Never Give Up, LGD, Weibo Gaming, and more.
The game is expected to feature several player cards that come with different ratings and abilities. According to Esports News UK, the game’s content will continuously be updated based on events and outcomes from the 2022 LPL Spring Season.
“We hope to tailor a game for esports fans that they will love, allowing them to experience the feeling of leading the dream team to victory as a manager,” said Kate Han, the global producer of LoL Esports Manager at Riot Games. “We designed the AI simulation system that restores the real event information based on LoL event data. [It will feature] all the situations that will happen in real matches – solo kills, baron steals, etc. You can be the leader and make the correct judgment to lead your team to victory.”
Based on an article from Esports News UK, Tencent will handle the launch of the game in China while Riot Games will be in charge of bringing the game to other regions. However, there is no information about when the game will be released outside of China at this time.
