If you love MOBA games on mobile and are a big fan of LOL, you cannot ignore Wild Rift. The game has now been officially announced on Play Store and App Store.
About League of Legends Wild Rift
Over the past 2 years, the popularity of Battle Royale such as Fortnite or PUBG makes us gradually forget the previous dominance of MOBA Games in the gaming industry. One of the mistakes of the MOBA Games developers like LoL or Dota is that they did not bring their products to mobile – the most popular gaming platform today. Riot Game realized this and decided to correct the mistake by officially developing and releasing a new mobile game called League of Legends Wild Rift. The game is a completely new traditional MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battlefield Arena) that was developed based on the PC version of LOL. At the moment, the game is available for Android, iOS and Console platforms. Players can now experience all the most interesting points of the 5vs5 gameplay right on mobile devices.
League of Legends Wild Rift key features
League of Legends Wild Rift brings the traditional features of a MOBA game. It is very familiar if you used to play LOL on PC. Here are the outstanding features of the game:
An independent product
One thing to be clear about is that there isn’t any association between League of Legends Wild Rift and the existing version on Windows. So you don’t need to worry about imbalances in battles. Rankings, servers and more are separate, which ensures that only mobile players can find each other in matches. Besides, there are also some changes in terms of the gameplay to suit the mobile experience. However, the basic features and gameplay are still built based on the PC version.
Choose your Champion
The champion system on Wild Rift is not as complete as the PC version. Only about 40 champions (compared to 116) will officially appear in Wild Rift. Tencent also confirmed that it will continue to add new champions in the future. The champions are still divided into groups based on their roles, including Gunner, Assassin, Mage, Support, Tank and Gladiator. You can meet the iconic Champions of the game like Ezreal. Lee, Thresh, Yasuo, Jhin, etc.
League of Legends Wild Rift still brings 5vs5 real-time matches, in which you will team-up with other players to fight on a map for destroying the opponent’s main house. In the game, the map includes the top lane, Bottom lane, and Middle lane. Players control the champion to move to the position on the map to kill minions or jungle animals to get gold and creeps. After that, they can use gold to upgrade and buy support items. As a mobile game, the developer shortened the time of each match in Wild Rift. It is usually only about 20-30 minutes/game. This is appropriate. Besides, because the time will be shortened, the matches will be more competitive. Players also need the right tactics to win.
With the hardware power of current mobile devices, it is not surprising that the graphics of Wild Rift are really impressive. You can even see it is no different from the PC version. The map and the champions designs are as good as on PC. Other colors in the game are bright. Combat effects and skill effects are also well simulated.
Intuitive control system
As a mobile game, the developer has optimized the control system to provide the best experience for the player. Many people say that the MOBA game experience on mobile is always limited by many factors such as small screen area, insufficient keys, and many other reasons. But you will change that mindset when trying League of Legends Wild Rift.
In addition, Tencent already knows how to optimize their products for mobile platforms. The keys are fit on the touch screen. You can easily navigate the character with the joystick on the left and perform skills with the buttons on the opposite side. In general, control is very intuitive, making it better for mobile gamers.
Wild Rift will be available on Mobile and Console
