Riot Forge Teases New League of Legends-Based Game in Cryptic Tweet


The Game Awards take place tomorrow night, and will serve as a platform for around 15 world premieres. Among them will be the first title published by Riot Forge, the new publishing arm for Riot Games. The company previously confirmed it would be present at the show, but stopped short of saying what this new title is.

However, in a new tweet this morning, Riot Forge provided a few teaser images from what appears to be a new look at one of its League of Legends games. It’s posted below, with the images indicating that there are “endless places to explore in Runeterra.”

Riot Forge hasn’t said anything beyond this. However, it has noted in the past that one of its goals is to “reach players that don’t necessarily like to play a competitive game” (per Dexerto), suggesting that this may be a single player experience.

Some of the locations will probably be familiar to die-hard LoL players. These include Bilgewater, the place Gangplank and Miss Fortune originally called home; as well as Freljord, an icy region where Braum and Ashe reside.

This ties in with Riot’s already expanding roster of games in the League of Legends universe. It previously announced a number of titles during its 10-year anniversary stream in October. These include an unnamed action/RPG; a new card game called Legends of Runeterra; and a new fighting game and first-person shooter title. Not to mention that League of Legends itself will make its debut on consoles and mobile next year with Wild Rift.

The Game Awards take place on Dec. 12, starting at 8:30pm ET.
