Friendship ended with Mobile Legends, LoL is now my friend
After what seemed to be an eternity, uber-popular MOBA Leauge Of Legends is finally heading to mobile. Riot Games, the creator of the hugely influential and popular game has announced that Leauge Of Legends Wild Rift will be heading to both mobile devices and unspecified consoles.
The new game looks extremely similar to the original LoL that we’ve all come to love, with additional tweaks to make it easier for people playing on mobile phones and consoles to play with.
But Riot says that the game isn’t simply a port of LoL, as it’s “it is a new game built from scratch to ensure it is a polished, legitimate LoL experience that’s worth players’ time.”
LoL is coming to the mobile scene late, as other developers have created their own interpretation of LoL to fill the MOBA-shaped hole in mobile gaming. Mobile Legends is one of the most popular MOBA-style games here in the Philippines and has borrowed heavily from LoL’s style (both in terms of game mechanics and art style) that Riot (and parent company Tencent) sued, and won, its game developers, Shanghai Moonton Technology.
Will the arrival of one of the most popular MOBA games on PC change the mobile landscape, or is Riot too late to the party with LoL: Wild Rift?
