There is no doubt that League of Legends is still one of the most successful titles on PC, and this is the reason why Riot Games decided to bring it to more platforms. As we all know, the studio is working on League of Legends: Wild Rift, a mobile version of the MOBA.
According to reports earlier, it was a matter of hours to check a little more of the gameplay of League of Legends: Wild Rift. Riot Games had a presentation at the Summer Game Fest, an event by Geoff Keighley. In the same livestream, the gameplay was revealed and its mechanics was discussed, as well as an Alpha test was to be conducted very soon in selected regions.
The member of Riot Games, Michael Chow, has now confirmed that they are preparing a 2-week Alpha test that will be available for Android devices. But sadly, it will only be held for now in Brazil and the Philippines. This test will start on June 6.
Michael Chow confirmed that this Alpha will serve to receive feedback and improve various aspects of the title. It will also be the ideal opportunity for Riot Games to test its infrastructure. According to the gameplay, League of Legends: Wild Rift promises shorter and more intense games, even if many key elements of the PC title will be preserved, there will be tweaks like a revamped version of the map, to make games faster.
It is also worth mentioning that League of Legends: Wild Rift will also feature a special selection of characters in their Alpha, which were revealed during the presentation. More champions will be added in the future through updates. And for the controls, it will have a dual-stick scheme, which will be responsive and precise. The interface will show the various abilities of the characters to activate them with a single touch, in a simple and accessible way.
