Riot's great revelations this week are … well, a riot. Legends of Runeterra is the next big revelation after they announced League of Legends: Wild Rift mobile. In an earlier revelation about his upcoming projects, Riot said they are spreading across multiple platforms in multiple very different genres, and there was talk of a card game, but now we even have the title and a practical demonstration.  Upon entering the card game scene, Riot, owned by Tencent, is releasing a CCG title that emerges from the LoL universe. It presents characters LoL and family issues. For example, MOBA fans will recognize the title of Runeterra, which is the continent where LoL's extravagance, tradition and political machinations take place. It is also said that the first set of cards will feature 24 of the known characters from the LoL universe, but that probably does not include abilities, spells and other abilities.
At first glance, the game seems to take long after CCG veterans like Magic: The Gathering and Hearthstone. In fact, Mr. Marc Merrill, co-founder of Riot, explicitly said in the company's big announcement that they are following the Hearthstone example. In addition, Riot has driven LoL and has focused solely on its expansion of eSports for a decade, and has even become a common joke about how one-dimensional they are with their title.
And there is nothing wrong with the company focusing on one title and doing it right. However, now that that ship can run alone, it's time to take out the big guns. Riot is going big, is spreading LoL in platforms and mobile consoles and is delving into other genres, as it does with this card game Legends of Runeterra, with its next FPS tactical game, and also There are rumors that they are working on an action role-playing game similar to Diablo.
It is promised that all these new games will arrive within the next year or so, while there are even images available in the game for Legends of Runeterra. At first glance, it seems that the game takes a long time after the original LoL in visual and style terms. It also features the same champions, but announces its own unique mechanics and game styles, different from the usual CCGs. It seems to be a card game of choice and opportunity. Check it out if they are on the right track:
