Publisher Riot Forge and developer Airship Syndicate have announced the release window for Ruined King: A League of Legends Story.
While the Windows PC (via Steam and the Epic Games Store), Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch versions are coming in early 2021, the Xbox Series X+S and PS5 versions are coming soon after. Users who buy the game on Xbox One or PS4 will get a free upgrade to the Xbox Series X+S or PS5 versions.
“Ruined King is a great way to expand the world of Runeterra for brand new players as well as our dedicated League of Legends fans,” Riot Forge head Leanne Loombe said in a press release. “Ruined King will be the first single-player game to bring the League of Legends 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.”
Airship Syndicate CEO Joe Madureira added, “We couldn’t resist the chance to work with Riot Forge to expand the epic world of Runeterra. 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.”
