Just like that, the countdown for the public release of League of Legends: Wild Rift has begun. Riot Games today announced that the regional open beta will kick off in select markets by the end of the month.

Open beta is coming to the Philippines, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand on October 27. It’s not a full launch of one of the most anticipated mobile games of 2020, but anyone residing in any of the said countries will be able to download and play Wild Rift ahead of everyone else. No more alpha and closed-beta loops to jump through, and no more invite system.

Additionally, Riot Games unveiled plans to launch a beta service for new locations, including the following:

  • All of Europe (December 2020)
  • Taiwan (December 2020)
  • Oceania (December 2020)
  • Vietnam (December 2020)
  • Americas (Spring 2021)

However, the timelines may change depending on how the game progresses.

Finally, more details about the upcoming League of Legends: Wild Rift patch have emerged. According to the development team, popular Wild Rift champion Lee Sin will be making his debut in the game October 23, along with six other champs who will be free to test for a limited time. The preview roster includes:

  • Evelynn
  • Kai’Sa
  • Akali
  • Seraphine
  • Darius
  • Draven

League of Legends: Wild Rift’s official launch is scheduled for later this year on Android and iOS devices. It is free to play, but has in-app purchases.

Earlier this week, Riot Games strongly suggested that the best device to play the game on is the Apple iPhone 12 series, which is powered by the 5nm A14 Bionic processor and is said to offer more 5G bands than any other device on the market today.
