Riot Games has revealed a new single-player adventure set within the League of Legends universe called Ruined King.
It’s clear that Riot isn’t ready to fully lift the curtain on this game, but we do know that it will focus on Bilgewater: a pirate-heavy area from the world of League of Legends where ships regularly congregate. The voice-over hints at evil things a-brewin, but it’s all pretty vague at this time exactly what’s going on.
One thing you can likely expect is for Ruined King to feature cameos (if not playable appearances) from some of the League of Legends roster. A couple of famous LoL characters were name-dropped during the reveal, and while it’s not clear what (if any) role they will have in the game, we’d be shocked if Riot doesn’t maximize the potential of the iconic roster and worlds they’ve created over the years.
We’re also a bit curious whether or not this is that Diablo-like game Riot was seemingly working on. It’s being developed by Airship Syndicate, the team behind Darksiders Genesis, so it’s certainly possible. However, Riot has not confirmed whether Ruined King is indeed the mysterious title once known as Project F.
For those who don’t know, Riot Game recently revealed a new publishing brand known as Riot Forge that is working with outside developers to create games set in the League of Legends universe. Ruined King is part of that new initiative alongside a fighting game and a card game. Riot is also working a new FPS that seems to be set outside of the LoL universe.
We’ll bring you more on Ruined King as additional information becomes available, but for now, we only know that it’s actively being developed for PC and consoles.
