On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of RIOT Games the company has teased their plans for the feature. Confirming recent rumors, RIOT Games have announced not one, but multiple new projects, among which is a card game Legends of Runeterra.
Legends of Runeterra is a strategy card game set in the world of League of Legends. All cards are based on the world’s six regions, with each set of cards having unique game style; however, the players can combine cards from different regions to create their own deck. The most powerful cards are Legends, which have their own set of abilities and can level up. Each round there is an offensive and a defensive side, with both players being able to play cards. The players alternate actions, meaning that when your opponent places a card you can also make your move.
The game will have a robust progression system, which will allow players to unlock cards and other rewards by simply playing the game. Players can explore different regions to get specific loot. Among rewards are Wildcards, which can be transformed into any card in the game. Cards can be bought directly from the store using either in-game currency or micro transactions. The game will also offer weekly rewards. Overall, the developers stressed that it will be possible to build at least several viable decks without spending real money.
Players can already pre-register of the game’s official website to get access to the game. The game will be available on PC and mobile devices.
