With Riot Forge coming into the fold, Riot Games have been working on expanding their League of Legends universe even more through a multitude of different games. Riot Forge was created to work with indie game developers to create new games within the League of Legends universe. The goal is to bring out the lore in new and exciting ways.
During a video on the Summer Games Fest YouTube channel, more information was revealed about their first major title Ruined King.
The Ruined King is the first game coming from the Riot Forge and Airship tandem. This game will be an RPG that seems to take place in a combination of the Shadow Isles and Bilgewater. Thresh was seemingly hatching some plans and that was all that was seen initially.
They did confirm that players would get to explore a multitude of areas within the two major regions of Runeterra. For Bilgewater the Slaughter Docks were mentioned. Along with vaults and libraries for the Shadow Isles which were once the Blessed Isles.
This was much more of a teaser but it seems like they are finishing the game soon according to the developers. With this, there should be some more information coming soon about Riot’s first RPG in the League of Legends universe. Hopefully, the release date will be sometime during the holiday season or early quarter one in 2021.
