League of Legends is finally coming to Android and iOS in 2020
There have been rumors that Riot Games plans to bring League of Legends to mobile several months ago, but the reports claimed the game will not be launched this year. Earlier today, Riot took the gaming industry by storm and announced not one, but a handful of new games that will arrive on various platforms in the coming months.

One of those games is League of Legends: Wild Rift, which is scheduled for release on Android and iOS in 2020. The game already appears in the Google Play Store, so you can pre-register to receive information about its upcoming release.

Just like the PC version, Wild Rift is a fast-paced PvP action-strategy game that pits teams of five players against each other. The folks at Riot Games claim Wild Rift has been built from the ground up for mobile, so we're expecting optimized touch controls and smooth gameplay.

The game is taking its name from the Summoner's Rift map from the PC version of the game. However, the Wild Rift map available in the mobile version has been streamlined for faster games, so it's probably going to be smaller.

Riot confirmed that Wild Rift will include more than 40 iconic champions at launch, but more will be added soon afterward. Obviously, there will be climbed ladder where you'll be able to earn loot according to your position.

League of Legends: Wild Rift will include loads of skins across dozens of themes, which lets players customize their champion. And the most important thing – Wild Rift will be available for free, all champions can be earned for free, and there's no paying for playtime or power.
