Riot Games has launched its new, free-to-play digital collectible card game, Legends of Runeterra (LoR) set within the same universe as League of Legends. LoR features cross-platform play, that allows gamers to enjoy the game on both PC and mobile devices.
Fans of League of Legends will be familiar with the classic champions and their iconic League of Legends abilities. Champions enter the battle as powerful cards, and depending on how masterfully you play, they level up to become even greater.
There are two main types of cards on Legends of Runeterra — Units and Spells. Units are your champions and minions fighting on the battlefield, while Spells are cast to influence the outcome of battle in more ethereal ways.
Battle friends for bragging rights as you test your decks or challenge foes in Ranked mode as you climb up the ladder. Alternatively, you can embark on an Expedition in a choose-your-own-adventure mode, as you draft a completely new set of cards and continually modify and tweak your deck as you progress in the mode.
While bundles and wildcards are available for purchase, spending to progress and enjoy the game is absolutely optional. There are plenty of in-game rewards from the get-go that will easily arm you with the cards you need for a satisfying experience.
There are four tutorials to teach you the basics of the game. But if you feel you need more time to sharpen your skills, there is another set of tutorials that deep dive into the various champions.
There will also be opportunitites to participate in online tournaments against other players with cash prizes to be won.
Legends of Runeterra is now available to download and play for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play in Singapore – users have to ensure that their store region is set as “Singapore” and can search for “Legends of Runeterra” to install the game.
Legends of Runeterra will officially launch worldwide on PC and mobile on 1 May 2020, with a new set of 120+ cards, including a new region. Card and champion reveals will begin soon and continue through launch, and the new set will be playable from April 29, 2020 on PC.
