League Of Legends Wild Rift Beta Launches In North America This Month

The mobile version of the hit MOBA will finally expand to American territories for testing.


League of Legends: Wild Rift, the spinoff of the main League of Legends MOBA, is opening its beta to a range of North and South American regions from March 29.

You'll be able to download and play the game for free on iOS and Android in the US, Canada, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Argentina, and Peru. Riot Games originally planned to release Wild Rift officially in 2020, but the project was delayed due to the ongoing pandemic. A new release date has not been set yet.

League of Legends: Wild Rift isn't a port of the existing PC MOBA, but rather a ground-up reimagining designed specifically for mobile and consoles. This means that while the gameplay remains the same, other elements, such as the control scheme, have been reworked to function with thumbsticks. On mobile you can control one of forty announced champions with an on-screen thumbstick, with an array of buttons on the right of the screen for your abilities.

League of Legends: Wild Rift is just on avenue that Riot Games is exploring to continue expanding its MOBA universe. It is also currently supporting Legends of Runeterra, a collectible card game in the same universe, and on Ruined King: A League of Legends Story with developer Airship Syndicate.
