Riot Games Surprise-Launches Ruined King: A League Of Legends Story

The turn-based RPG's launch was the final announcement of the Riot Forge video presentation.


Riot Forge has announced that Ruined King: A League of Legends Story, the turn-based RPG from Battle Chasers: Nightwar developer Airship Syndicate, is now available.

The announcement came at the end of a Riot Forge video presentation that also provided updates on rhythm runner Hextech Mayhem, action-platformer Convergence, and the debut of Song of Nunu, a 3D adventure game from Tequila Works.

The game follows multiple League of Legends champions--including Miss Fortune, Yasuo, Ahri among others--as they explore both the port city of Bilgewater and the distant Shadow Isles in search of the source of a deadly fog called the Black Mist, which corrupts anyone that comes in contact with it.

Ruined King was first announced during the Riot Games 10th Anniversary celebration in 2019. It is the first game ever to be launched under Riot Forge, Riot Games' new publishing label that supports outside developers creating games in the League of Legends Universe.

Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is now available on Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC for $29.99. The game is compatible with Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, and Riot has confirmed an upgraded version for both consoles is coming in the near future.
