It was announced a little while ago, but the League of Legends mobile port, Wild Rift, has resurfaced again after an announcement that it would finally be coming to iOS alongside the iPhone 12 announcement.
League of Legends: Wild Rift has been a thing for a hot minute now, although not much has really been said about the mobile port for Riot’s MOBA. Aside from the game being on Mobile, and Consoles, it all seems pretty-much what you’d expect from a League of Legends mobile port. There’s only around 40 Champions, at launch anyway, but that’s to be expected given the size it’ll probably take up on a mobile device. Much like League of Legends is currently, it will be free to play with both casual and competitive modes. There’s no word as to whether you’ll have simultaneous progress, like with Fortnite, but I wouldn’t count on it.
Now, in an effort to showcase the iPhone 12’s gaming capabilities in a world where mobile gaming is thriving, Apple chose to show League of Legends: Wild Rift. This is a little odd, given that Apple has their own game subscription service: Apple Arcade. However, it makes sense to show a title that is more widely known to appeal to the widest audience. Perhaps Fortnite would have been shown, without the lawsuit, but anyway…
Below you can see the reveal for yourself:
Apple are bigging League of Legends up a lot in the prelude to the announcement, before handing over to Michael Chow to announce Wild Rift’s release alongside the iPhone 12. As much as it is an obvious advert, and would suggest that there is a Riot Apple partnership in the works, it is an exciting look at the new game.
