Ruined King Is A Story-Based League Of Legends Game

The first LoL single-player campaign will ship for consoles and PC.


During The Game Awards, comic artist-turned-game developer Joe Madureira announced that his game studio Airship Syndicate is working with Riot Games to develop the first single-player campaign for the popular MOBA League of Legends. Titled Ruined King, the single-player story will focus on a set of League champions facing off against monsters and other bosses in turn-based combat.

The storyline for the Ruined King takes place after the Burning Tides event, which introduced a whole suite of changes to LoL. Currently, the game is in development for consoles and PC. According to Madureira at the show, the game will feature a “new take on turn-based combat that’s really cool.”

Earlier this year, Riot Games revealed an ambitious expansion to the League of Legends franchise. In addition to this new single-player game, League of Legends will also have a brand new fighting game with the set of League champions. Known as Project L, this fighting game spin-off is developed by Radiant Entertainment, which was created by the co-founder of the EVO fighting game tournament.
