Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is coming to PC and consoles in early 2021. The turn-based, single-player role-playing game will mark the debut of the League of Legends franchise on consoles.

A trailer that played during the 2020 League of Legends World Championship Finals showed off the game’s featured characters: Braum, Illaoi, Miss Fortune, Ahri, Pyke, and Yasuo. Though these characters come from different areas and have little to do with each other, it looks like they’ll group up to defeat a new enemy. Judging by the title, we can probably assume that the heroes will have to take on the Ruined King, who isn’t playable in League of Legends, but has an item named after him.

Ruined King is the first game to be made by Riot Forge, Riot Games’ publishing brand. We got a look at the game last year, but the original teaser trailer didn’t actually show too much information about Riot’s new project. Ruined King is being developed by Airship Syndicate, the creators behind Darksiders Genesis and Battle Chasers: Nightwar.

The game has a planned launch for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, and on Windows PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is also coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and owners of the PS4 and Xbox One versions will be able to upgrade their copy for free. More information about Ruined King is promised in December.
