Riot Games has announced that League of Legends: Wild Rift, the mobile version of the hugely popular PC game, will finally be playable in the Americas later this month. The beta for Wild Rift is a regional open beta, meaning that the beta has been rolled out to different regions over time, the first being east and southeast Asia, in October of last year.
The Wild Rift team announced the news with a trailer, which didn’t include much aside from the list of countries that would be included in the Americas. Brazil, LATAM, and North America, it’s time to turn off your VPNs.
The beta will be coming to Brazil, Mexico, Chile, the United States, Argentina, Canada, Colombia, and Peru. The more surprising part of this news, however, as detailed in a blog post from Riot, explaining the way this transition would work.
The PC version of League of Legends has separate servers for North and South America, but for Wild Rift, these regions will be combined into one server for the Americas. One downside to this new transition is that the servers for the rest of the world are on a different infrastructure, so players in the Americas will not be able to play with players on a different server.
Although Wild Rift was announced for both mobile and consoles, this beta will be for mobile users only. There is still no word from Riot on the development of console versions.
