Riot Games’ new publishing label, Riot Forge, has announced that two new League of Legends-themed games are in development.
Ruined King: A League of Legends Story, developed by Airship Syndicate, and CONV/RGENCE: A League of Legends Story (pictured), developed by Double Stallion Games, are on the way. Both are set in the League of Legends universe.
Ruined King: A League of Legends Story is a story-driven, turn based RPG. Set after the events of Burning Tides, players will take control of LoL champions and explore the city of Bilgewater and the Shadow Isles in a game for the first time.
CONV/RGENCE: A League of Legends Story is a single player action platformer game. Players can explore the world of Zaun as Ekko, a young inventor who can manipulate time.
“We are thrilled to announce our first two partnerships with Airship Syndicate and Double Stallion Games, who really understand how to bring their unique style to the League of Legends Universe and tell deep stories that players can immerse themselves in,” said Leanne Loombe, Head of Riot Forge.
“We’re excited to be working with Riot Forge for Ruined King: A League of Legends Story,”said Joe Madureira, CEO at Airship Syndicate.
“We’ve always thought the events of Burning Tides created a rich opportunity for so many great stories, we’re thrilled by the opportunity to move the lore forward and bring Bilgewater and Shadow Isles to life like never before.”
“Ekko is such a unique champion with an energetic personality that’s a joy to work with,” added Lee Thomas, Creative Director at Double Stallion Games.
“We are immersing ourselves in the spectacular city of Zaun, which has such an interesting and rich culture with its juxtaposition to Piltover, and are looking forward to giving players a new way to experience the League of Legends Universe.”
