Riot Forge announced that Ruined King: A League of Legends Story will be making its way to consoles and PC in 2021. The game will be launching on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC via Epic Games Store followed by the release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S with existing PlayStation 4 system and Xbox One owners having the ability to upgrade their version for free.
“Ruined King is a great way to expand the world of Runeterra for brand new players as well as our dedicated League of Legends (LoL) fans,” said Head of Riot Forge at Riot Games, Leanne Loombe. “Ruined King will be the first single-player game to bring the LoL universe to both consoles and PC. We are excited to take this plunge into exploring stories and champions that players have enjoyed over the years, and can’t wait for our players to embark on this new adventure with us.”
Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is a single-player and immersive turn-based RPG that invites new players to the LoL universe as well as players entrenched in the lore to enjoy exploring its mysteries. The story is set in two regions of Runeterra, Bilgewater, a port town that is home to sea monster hunters, dock gangs, and smugglers from across the known world; and the Shadow Isles, a land cursed with the deadly Black Mist which shrouds the island and corrupts those it comes in contact with. In order to defeat a common and mysterious enemy, players will form an unlikely party of beloved League of Legends champions – Miss Fortune, Illaoi, Braum, Yasuo, Ahri, and Pyke.
“We couldn’t resist the chance to work with Riot Forge to expand the epic world of Runeterra,” said Joe Madureira, CEO of Airship Syndicate. “These are some of our own favorite champions, and we can’t wait for players to see how we brought the characters, creatures, and environments of Runeterra to life.”
