League of Legends is Coming to Consoles and Mobile Devices

Better Late Than Never

The massively successful MOBA Leauge of Legends has been on top of the world for nearly a decade now. While it has managed to rake in millions of dollars along with hordes of adoring fans, LoLs ascension has taken place exclusively on PC. However, that is all about to change. League of Legends is going to be coming to consoles and phones.

Called  League of Legends: Wild Rift, this version of the well-know MOBA is going to be a little different from what people on the PC are playing. However, the core experience is still going to be the same. Wild Rift is going to play a tad differently in order to compensate for players using controllers rather than a mouse and a keyboard. It is also expected that a game of Wild Rift is going to be much shorter than what you’d see from its PC cousin. Games are supposedly going to only take around 15-20 minutes. This has been done in order to avoid the hour-long games that are not uncommon on PC.

While there are a lot of details missing about Wild Rift, gamers should expect to see a much faster playstyle than vanilla Leauge of Legend. Wild Rift gives off a sort of a pickup and go kind of vibe. Alphas and maybe even betas should be rolled out by the end of 2019 if we’re lucky.

League of Legends making the transition from PC to console and mobile is going to be interesting, to say the least. This is not the first time that games which have been exclusively on PC have tried their hand at console gaming. Some have succeeded. While others have crashed and burned.
